Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, or the doctor Now as his patients call him. Perhaps he is one of the most well-known and beloved doctors after Dr. Who, Dr. Kimble and Dr. Oz. We met him thanks to the program (My 600 lbs life) broadcast on TLC. His golden stethoscope, his unique expression that is not lacking in his face, his pity when necessary, his dyed hair came into our lives and we loved him very much.

8. Dr. Now’s sincere and firm manner is another reason we love him. Because of the success of these stubborn and challenging patients requires this way.

He does not say; he always leaves the decision to them because this is their life.
