Friday, Jul 17, 2020

I want to state unequivocally, and as a City Council member, that I am against all forms of bullying and racism.

Take Action | Doctor’s Diary with Dr. Gene Dorio
Monday, Jun 15, 2020

It was over 50 years ago. Brad was a surfer, so we went to Santa Monica where, at that time, they had a surfing-only area. I didn’t surf, but he was talented in his sport. He was also African-American. Two bikini-clad girls swam into the surf lanes, causing several to bail out including Brad, with...

Comfort Zone | Doctor’s Diary with Dr. Gene Dorio
Friday, Jun 12, 2020

Most people don’t know I was born in Harlem. We left New York in 1954 because my parents told us the weather in California would be better for my brother’s asthma. In reality, we were political exiles escaping the civil rights battles of the big city. Racism. I never knew of it, as we were protected...

As a mom of three, I often wonder if my children listen to the stories and life lessons I try to convey. Raising decent, kind human beings is hard enough, let alone raise them in a world that can seem so cruel and unfair – to some more so than others. By now, we have all seen the video of a white...

Together As One | Doctor’s Diary with Dr. Gene Dorio
Wednesday, Jun 3, 2020

The 1996 movie “Independence Day” was a futuristic lesson in unity when the world fought for survival. Neither race, nationality, religion, social status, gender, educational level nor political party played a role in this battle. We were one. Similarly, when admitting patients to the hospital, I...

No Honor, Integrity Required
Wednesday, May 27, 2015

It seems the more stories I do about our institutions of higher learning, the more I come to the conclusion there are no real standards for those teaching our young people. You might need a degree in order to teach, but that’s about all. Honor and integrity are no longer required. Once again, my home...

Injecting Race
Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Last week, among all the garbage that was going on in Baltimore, we saw something we don’t see very often: a parent taking charge of her teenage child who was going down to where the riots were happening. Once the vandalism started, it turned from protests to riots. But she marched through the crowd,...
