NEW EPISODE: Health Care and More with Dr. Dean Edell

Rep. Jared Huffman
1 min readFeb 1, 2017


Before Dr. Oz and Dr. Gupta, we had Dr. Dean Edell: an ophthalmologist and surgeon who hosted the syndicated Dr. Dean Edell radio program for over 30 years, and answered your medical questions on any and every topic during more than 15,000 “medical minutes” on the radio.

Even though he’s now retired, Dr. Dean graciously offered to be my guest on this this week’s episode of “Off the Cuff w. Rep. Huffman.”

Among his many qualifications: Dr. Dean is a constituent of the second congressional district of California and lives in beautiful Mendocino county.

This week I got to talk to Dr. Dean about the health care challenges facing rural communities, the future of the Affordable Care Act, his advocacy for the medical use of cannabis, and much more!

Have a question? Please send it to and you can hear me answer on a future episode of “Off the Cuff with Rep. Huffman”

I hope you enjoy!
