Love this podcast
As an internist.. some
Of this podcast does not apply to my practice but it is succinct and always interesting … great podcast !
Stop Whispering and Speak into the Microphone
Imagine patients missing key information because the physician doesn’t face them when talking or speaks too softly. My colleagues and I have to keep turning the volume up and down to listen to these podcasts. Please speak at a normal volume and cadence. Otherwise great summaries, enthusiasm and insight. Keep it up! Once in a while, the recommendations for a treatment don’t match the data or seem up front. If 80 people have to take an expensive, uncomfortable or inconvenient treatment for five years to prevent one adverse event, then maybe it’s not the best option?
