Dr.K.D ,

All episodes are intriguing and practical from a PM&R physician perspective! Please give us more!

I couldn’t find a way or had the patience to rate all your episodes but they are too good not to send a review! I listen to them on my way to see inpatient consults, inpatient rehab patients and my outpatient patients. It helps keep me up to date and focused on the most practical recent literature. I also enjoy hearing the perspectives from the authors, specialists and Dr Fox. For the most part it matches the production of NPR podcasts IMO. Thanks to all who created this and keep it going!

PS I honestly never write reviews or rate podcasts as I’m driving...when not driving I’m in a never ending time crunch. The podcast app was fortunately open when I got home to switch to Spotify music which reminded me to redeem myself for not giving a review where it is completely deserved.

Very Best,

Kimberly Davis, MD FAAPMR

A great way to get to know what's happening in disability and rehab researc

Very informative and engaging! The intro piece on OT history was fun to listen to. The news items directly impact the community. I really enjoyed hearing from the individual authors about their research and how it will affect people with disabilities. Some of the discussion can be quite technical or clinical but I think it will have broad appeal.
