A Rating of LA’s Emergency Rooms, Hollywood’s Top Doctors, and How to Live Forever

From Kimye’s OBGYN to Morgan Freeman’s ‘medical guru’ Dr. Soram Khalsa to Steve Tisch’s favorite neurosurgeon, The Hollywood Reporter details nearly 500 doctors used by entertainment executives and actors. If posting requests for referrals on Facebook has gotten you nowhere, this may be the read for you. Alongside the list are related topics ranging from a rating of L.A.’s Emergency Rooms (our vote goes to UCLA) to why L.A. schoolkids are getting sick to a couple ways to beat death altogether. #TruffleNotes: It’s not totally uncommon to house a cryogenic machine these days, at least in LA.

The Palm’s Caricatures Wont Make the Move to Beverly Hills :-(

About a year ago, we heard the Palm was considering a move to Canon Drive. Our immediate question was — how are they going to handle all those caricatures of regulars and celebrities layered all over the walls and ceilings — many dating back to the very, very old days. Many of the images are pasted over parts of others, some are painted directly on walls, some are put on with Elmer’s glue, some are on the ceiling, some are strategically positioned at a patron’s favorite booth … So what would happen to them? Would The Palm take the walls somehow?
