Meet the iPhone fixer

(CNN) – There's at least one "doctor" left in New York City who still makes house calls, and a lot of people swear he's nothing short of a lifesaver. Brendan McElroy is not a real MD, but he has plenty of suffering the throes of smartphone withdrawal. Poppy Harlow visited with the "iPhone fixer" for this American Morning original report.

    I saw your excellent run on "Brendan Mcelroy the iPhone fixer and wanted to know how to reach him. All you said was that he is in the "Lower East side of New York city and wonder if you could give me his e/m address or tel # there.

    Many thanks and congrats on ur excellent feature. So much better that Fox news as all they do is saturate the airwaves and us with countless and endless commercials so CNN is my "home channel" to be sure.

    Thanks again,

    Since the Apple warranty doesn't really cover much, and it is difficult to get them to honor it, losing something that is pretty worthless is no problem

    i think this is a very odd and very unusual way to be a doctor. But hey that is his problem, not mine. But does he have a degree in iphonology and medicine for the people suffering withdrawl
