Barrett’s Patient

Doctor has a good podcast for most part, but she discounts Keto diet as just a fad and recommends against. Won’t continue .

Good Information But...

She talks waaaayyyy too fast and I usually only make it half an episode before turning it off.
Slow down, take a breath and give your listeners a chance to absorb the information.
