Interview with a Doctor-Triathalete

DX Apparel was founded by doctor/nurse healthcare pros with endurance athlete experience. We recently sat down with another doctor to examine what impact medical apparel really has.

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.”
