Unless you are a full-time rock critic, it can be difficult to maintain good musical health. That’s where the Rock Doctors come in.

Do you have an allergy to a specific musical genre? Do you have an unhealthy addiction to one type of music? Or do you have a friend or relative who needs an intervention?

Whatever your rock ailment, the Sound Opinions clinic has its doors open. Drs. Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot see patients a few times a year. To request an appointment fill out the form below and return it to
