It’s cold and flu season and chances are someone in your family will come down with the common cold before winter’s end. While everyone has their own home remedy, many people will expect their doctor to prescribe an antibiotic. Our wellness Wednesday topic this week talks about why an antibiotic may not be the best way to treat your cold. Knoxville Medicine’s Doc Talk Host, Elise Denneny, MD and special guest Eric Penniman, DO, discuss the proper use of antibiotics and why it’s important not to overuse these powerful drugs. Eric Penniman, DO is the Executive Medical Director of the Summit Medical Group with 60 different practice locations in East Tennessee.
