Doc Jimmy is no stranger to broadcasting after having guested on several television shows and radio programs in the past. In fact, he began his stint in DWWW 774 for a 15-minute segment, “Ano’ng Say Mo, Dok?”, during the news commentary program called “Ito’ng Say Ko, Ano’ng Say N’yo”, hosted by the late Lilibeth Nacion.
In just a few months, Doc Jimmy was given his own 30-minute program “Doktor’s Orders” because of the growing demand for health and wellness type programs, especially from the 40 years and above segment. Naturally the ratings also grew as more and more listeners started tuning in to the program, which features not only Doc Jimmy but also his guest doctors, focusing on the different health concerns affecting them today like stress, obesity, diabetes, body pain, arthritis, and cancer among others.
