Music & Medicine: Doctors Uncover New Ways to Use Music as a Healing Modality
Guest: Dr. Stephan Quentzel, MD, JD, MA,
Much can be understood about a patient from the musical choices he/she makes, even if they are not a musician, since everyone has “musical reflexes with rhythm and melody,” according to Stephan Quentzel, MD, says doctors today are discovering more about the physiological responses connected to different frequencies of music and brain activity and the value these connections have in patient wellbeing and care across a range of disorders. He discusses this new area of medicine and what it’s meant for his career in this episode of Medicine in America.
