Amazing

I love how they are so open about things

EagleBait ,

Great content!

I recently found this show and I am obsessed! My husband is a DVM and we have plans to open our own practice in the near future. Such great information and I appreciate the “hope” and information Isaiah gives for doctors who want to own their own practices.

Phil the surgeon ,

One of the few unmissable podcasts

Isaiah is one of the smartest people I know. He is the perfect mix of street smart and thorough research. Not surprisingly, the end result is a super interesting podcast I listen to & learn from systematically.
