  • “I read in a Facebook group that this is the last season, is this true? I know Dr. Now is getting older, so he’d. have to retire at some point.”
  • “He is really old now, he deserves to rest now and enjoy the rest of his life.”
  • “If he’s retiring, I hope they can just bring in a new doctor to take the reins of the business and the show. Years ago, he did have another doctor on for an episode or two. I thought at that point he was going to prepare the other doctor to take over.”
  • “I wouldn’t blame him if he did. Can you imagine going through all this work for these people and they constantly criticize, they lie to him, and nine out of 10 they never get the surgery. I would have enough for that too.”
  • “He is looking a little chunky himself.”

  • “Actually they already have Dr. Heydari onboard. He saved my best friend’s life when she had a herniated bowel obstruction and he’s a phenomenal bariatric surgeon. I suspect they may shift things over to him a bit.”
  • “He seems very nice and well equipped for the job he does. He’s no Dr. Now. What can you do tho.”
  • “Yeah most doctors would have retired like 10 years ago at least, so he’s clearly devoted. I also thought that if he still wanted to do the show, and or keep working, he could still do the consultations, but have someone else do the actual surgeries.”
