Sickle cell experts who are easy to understand!

Too many doctors speak above patients or don't take the time to "translate" their message to patients and families. Dr. Zaidi and Dr. Callaghan are the opposite! Easy to listen to experts, who clearly enjoy talking sickle cell together, and who really care about patients and families receiving critical educational info. Great pod, even greater docs!

Just what the doctors ordered!

It’s refreshing to hear the medical staff in a non-clinical setting. The stories they relate of their clinical practice in dealing with specific patient situations help convey their approachability. The medical information they provide is explained in an easy-to-understand way. I appreciate the opportunity to learn more about this condition, and am excited about the future therapeutic options for this community.
