I'm happy about this addition to the QD family! Dr. Rob presents relevant, timely information on health topics that would be stale if not for his awesome bedside manner. Wish it were longer (and thanks for doing the commercials at the end)!
Entertaining medical stuff!
This is my kind of podcast! Health questions made fun and easy to understand. Heard one podcast then couldn't resist to hear them all. I'm excited to hear more of these. Thanks Dr. Rob
A bit too cute
Good information is presented, but the "humor" is grating and distracting.
