“With how unreliable health information has become in online media, I consider it a true blessing that my audience has put the trust in me to point them in the right direction. These Webby awards signify that you can amplify honest medical info to a massive audience responsibly.”
Throughout the current health crisis, Doctor Mike’s #AlertNotAnxious platform has provided much-needed reassurance to the general public, with The New York Timesagreeing, “Doctor Mike on YouTube is one of the site’s trusted sources on the coronavirus.”
He has interviewed leading experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci and Google Health’s Dr. David Feinberg, addressing topics like testing, masks and misinformation in the media. Doctor Mike has established himself as the media’s to-go source for trusted COVID-19 information. Watch his Coronavirus Truths Series here.
Since launching his YouTube channel in 2015, Doctor Mike established a following of more than 10 million collective followers on social media, providing evidence-based medical information in a practical, entertaining way. He combats medical misinformation on the web and addresses topics like fad diets and common medical conditions.
