Concise podcasts addressing new science that informs day to day patient care

Constructive feedback

Very informative podcast, I love it. There is room for improvement the accuracy of some details but overall it is basic and useful education. I.e. Ivabradine requires a minimum HR of 70 and not 60, plus the presence of sinus rhythm. Also, His bundle pacing is not that new and is being left behind by Left bundle area pacing at this point. Otherwise, great podcast. Keep it up!

Very informative -- will inspire you to eat better

I thought I knew a decent amount about nutrition but I have been learning a lot from each episode. It is definitely making me take a closer look at my food choices, but instead of making me feel bad, this podcast makes me feel excited about eating healthier foods.
