Dr. Ahdoot was featured in the April 18, 2017 episode of the Dr. Phil Show: ““I Fear My 19-Year-Old Pregnant Daughter’s Negligence Will Kill Her and Disable Her Baby!” The episode told the story of Samantha, a 19-year old woman who had become pregnant, and her mother Krystina, who was concerned that her daughter’s lifestyle and health condition would endanger both Samantha’s health and the health of her baby.
Dr. Phil indicated that 50% of the solution to any problem is defining it, and advised Samantha to have an ultrasound scan to provide further information regarding her pregnancy. Samantha chose Dr. Ahdoot to help her educate herself about both her health and her baby’s health. Dr. Ahdoot examined her and performed an ultrasound. Samantha particularly enjoyed hearing her baby’s heartbeat, which she said made her feel happy. Dr. Ahdoot provided Samantha valuable information, which will allow her to better understand her pregnancy and be more prepared for the birth of her child. He also reassured Samantha that he would review the images and follow-up with her regarding next steps.
