Arpita and Michael work synergistically to bring unique topics to Physicians. They augment this with hosting wonderful and experienced physicians in all realms of the medical world to hit home on practical points and offer solutions to doctors, who we all know are struggling with one thing or another. A wonderful show I always look forward to.

Helpful and insightful

The show is incredibly helpful for my day-to-day life at home and in work. It has opened my eyes to new concepts and ideas that I would not have thought of otherwise. It is help me to relieve stress and have less anger in my day-to-day life at work at home.
