Best healthcare podcast I continuously listen to.
Dr. Dawn is great
I really enjoy the show and love Dr. Dawn’s approach re.always taking a deeper look. The only frustrating thing is that if one can’t listen live there’s no telling when the podcasts will show up, sometimes a couple of weeks later which sort of neutralizes some of the time sensitive info., e.g. Covid updates.
It's hard to believe that this doctor is not on National radio everyday because her grasp of science and medicine is phenomenal. She explains things so clearly and so completely. She is a gift to everyone who listens and who knows how many people were properly diagnosed and treated becase of her callers. PLEASE GIVE US MORE Dr. Dawn
