Helpful for primary care too!

Episodes are helpful in my clinical practice as a primary care doc. Especially loved the one about cow milk protein allergy/intolerance/proctocolitis/all the names it has 😂 and the one about social determinants of health and IBD with Dr. Ali from my residency program! Yay Sabina!

LOVE IT

I absolutely love listening to Bowel Sounds during my study periods. As a person that suffers from a motility disorder and also aspires to be a Pedi Gastro it’s a fantastic podcasts to learn more.
LOVE this podcast and can’t wait for upcoming episodes.

Hirschsprung podcast

First few minutes of podcast re: hosts discussing a toddler birthday party, silly (describing one of their children eating at a snack table while adults stood around watching.) and a waste of time on a medical podcast. The rest of the podcast with the pediatric GI surgeon was excellent. He explained the condition, manifestations, and surgical interventions in a clear and thorough manner.
