Donn Hogan, MD - Nephrologist and Triathlete, Scottsdale, AZ
DX: "What 'Go To' medical gear do you wear in the hospital?"
DH: "At the hospital on rounds, I wear scrubs. Scrubs are my choice in the dialysis clinic and in-patient wards due to my concern for nosocomial organism transmission."
DX: "Do you wear base-layer shirts under the scrubs."
DH: "I usually wear a tee shirt underneath because the hospital scrubs are itchy and the V neck to low." The base layer is an interesting thought since I often have to walk outside between buildings on the hospital campus and I sweat in the summer (Scottsdale is warm in the summer don't you know)."
DX: "What if your medical "scrub" had fabric properties similar to the gear you train in for your races?"
DH: "Duh...I'd like them much more. This is where I think you [DX] will be offering tremendous value for the health care professional"
DX: "No brainer huh?"
DH: "I don't practice neurology, but seems to me that's correct.”
