ErFrHu ,

Dr. Faryal is such a captivating interviewer

I love the variety of guests you have and the support and information you share. Such a valuable podcast from such a knowledgeable physician and coach.

Mister-Doctor ,

Add this to your Must-Listen list

Different podcasts appeal to different audiences, depending on the interests of the listener and the relevance to their life. This podcast, however, is relevant to everyone. Everyone will have to deal with illnesses and death during the course of their life, and everyone can benefit from learning how to live a full life, whether they are currently facing these issues or not. Dr. Michaud, a Palliative Care physician, expertly explores the topics of coping with illness and death. Because this is her area of expertise, it has also given her great insight into how to live intentionally in the present and to enjoy the “now”, because the future is never guaranteed. The podcast has many, many excellent guests that help to shine a light on these important topics. Don’t Miss This Podcast!

Dr Angel

Most patients and their families will say their doctor is an angel only when they are cured of an illness. I wish there were more doctors like you to help families navigate a terminal illness. So glad to have met you I feel reassured for advocating for my mother in law. Thank you Dr Angel.
