Dr. Oz interviews Rosie O’Donnell
Rosie O”Donnell has given her first television interview since her August heart attack to “The Dr. Oz Show” in New York, producers said.
The segment, in which cardiac surgeon Mehmet Oz reviews O”Donnell”s angiogram and discusses her heart attack with her, is to air Monday.
“I applaud Rosie for using her experience to teach others about the risks and symptoms of heart disease,” Oz said in a statement Tuesday. “As a cardiac surgeon I have operated on thousands of people who could have avoided heart disease altogether if they simply understood some simple prevention principles. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer in America and most people don”t know the telltale warning signs. Rosie has provided us with a teachable moment from her own experience, which is noble and empowering for anyone recovering from heart attack.”
