✅ ABOUT Philip James
He is the host of the popular podcast: Doctor Thyroid
In 2013, his laryngeal nerve was severed, shoulder nerve damaged, parathyroids ruined, and residual cancer left behind — all for a 1 cm thyroid nodule.
Later, a vocal cord implant was inserted to help him speak.
All the above, the result of a bad thyroid surgery that dampened his quality of life — and left him wondering, what exactly happened — during what should be a low-risk surgery?
His attempts to follow up with UCLA and the UCLA surgeon were ignored.
He then turned to other doctors for answers — this was the beginning of the podcast:
"Doctor Thyroid with Philip James"
100+ episodes later, the Doctor Thyroid podcast is popular amongst patients; allowing them to access information from top doctors, without being limited by geography or economics.
The word he uses to describe his work as patient advocate is, ‘tonglen’. Or, using his pain and hardship to help others.
When not producing podcast episodes or co-hosting live Q&As for patients with top doctors, he leads the creative team at Doctor Marketing and Philip James Media — a marketing agency dedicated to digital communications serving the sectors of healthcare, payments, and Greentech.
The Doctor Thyroid podcast is available in Spanish and English - and listened to in over 30 countries: (Spanish)🔹 (English)🔹
