Show Notes

While I do understand that there may be this idea out there, that the OBL is some magical place, the truth is that I think the ideal scenario is what I havewhich is practicing on both sides of the street, so to speak. Because they each pose their own challenges and they each have their own benefits. —Bret Wiechmann, MD, FSIR
