Ask Dr. Bunny. How important are health tests? Randy Hinton, guest.

Randy Hinton joins Dr. Bunny to share an incredible health story.  Randy was in his early 50’s when he asked his doctor to include a PSA test in his routine blood work.  The doctor told Randy it wasn’t really necessary because that test isn’t generally done until you’re 55.  But Randy had a feeling that he should have it, and insisted he’d like it done.

So, the PSA test was included in the blood tests, and it showed that Randy had prostate cancer.  But there was another turn of events that happened when Randy had a full body scan – a tumor showed up on his kidney.

If Randy had waited until the suggested age before having these tests, his issues would’ve been much further along, and he may not be here today!

Randy has had more specialty tests & his journey has been truly fascinating.  Tune in and hear more of this very informative story.  And remember: if you have a feeling about needing a test, push for that test to be done – even if you’re not at ‘the age’ yet!

Ask Dr. Bunny. A cancer survivor for over 30 years? David Bodofsky, guest.

David Bodofsky joins Dr. Bunny to discuss life, music’s healing power, and being a cancer survivor for over 30 years!  David shares how he discovered he had a brain tumor at the age of 22, in 1987, and the steps that were taken immediately in an effort to remove the tumor.

Music is so healing and enriching, and David is convinced that music is what keeps him alive – whether it’s the music, or the work itself because there’s no time to think about being ill.

David shares what his biggest fear of surgery was, and what he told his doctor.  He also tells us about having surgery while being awake, and why that is important in brain surgery.

David certainly believes in miracles and has a fascinating story, full of gratitude and appreciation.  This is one story you need to hear!

Ask Dr. Bunny. DUI? How has law changed? Dale Gribow, guest.

Attorney Dale Gribow joins Dr. Bunny from Palm Springs, California, to discuss law.  Dale is one of the top lawyers in the Palm Springs area, representing the injured and criminally accused, with an emphasis on accident cases and DUI cases.

Dale tells us how things have changed during his nearly 50 years in law, as well as what the most common question was when he first started, and what the most common question is now.  He also shares the reasons why he will not take certain cases.

DUI cases and sentencing have changed a lot over the years, and we’ll learn the specifics.

Dale is a wealth of information, so tune in for a fascinating interview!

About Dale Gribow:

My journey into the legal profession actually began at a young age, when I decided early on that I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to effect positive change in my community. Growing up in California, my dad taught me that it is our duty to help those who may not be in a position to help themselves. I had always assumed that he meant those who may not have the means to help themselves, like the poor and the underprivileged. Later, I realized that this also applies to anyone facing legal troubles who may not understand their rights and how to protect themselves. When I left for college at the University of Southern California (USC), I originally set out to study pre-med. I quickly had a change of heart when my dad passed away from cancer that was misdiagnosed. From that point on I felt compelled to focus on pre-law and work my way toward becoming an attorney so that I could help others seek justice when faced with the difficult circumstances that my family was faced with when my father passed away.

After receiving my B.A. from USC in 1965, I had to stay in Los Angeles to take care of my family, so I applied and was immediately accepted into Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. After three years of studying and hard work, I was able to graduate with honors in 1969 and pass the California bar that same year. After passing the bar, I continued to take post-graduate classes at USC and UCLA Law Schools while working as a trial lawyer for the Los Angeles Public Defenders Office. I  would eventually leave to form my own firm, which would grow to a 30-person firm that focused on civil litigation and criminal law.

Eventually, in 1994 I decided to relocate to the greater Palm Springs area for a better place to raise our 7-year-old daughter. This was primarily due to the environment in Beverly Hills, as many of her classmates were wearing push-up bras and lipstick, while I just wanted her to be able to enjoy being a little girl.

Relocating also allowed me to open my current firm, which has spent the last two decades serving the great people of Palm Springs. Over the past 20 years my firm, Dale Gribow Attorney at Law, has been working hard to serve the members of the Palm Desert community and the surrounding areas with excellent legal counsel and representation. I place a high value on helping those in need, and I make it a point to engage in philanthropic activities that can benefit the very people I live alongside and serve through my firm.

Through the years I’ve learned that when it comes to helping others with legal issues, what matters most is understanding the needs of my client and being invested in their success. I truly care about my clients and will treat every single person that walks through my door with respect, dignity, and compassion. I understand how scary your situation may be, and that’s why I’m here to help. Whatever problem you’re facing, I’d like to try and help, so that together, we can try to find a solution that can help you move forward and put your legal troubles behind you.
