Today I’m on a little bit of a rant.

I don’t do this often—I normally have guests on this podcast—but sometimes, I’ve got to get my word out. There are just times when certain things hit me, and they hit me because I care.

I care so much about helping my colleagues in practice because I understand the frustrations in the industry and that some younger doctors are feeling outright deceived about their choice of profession. I want to help my own generation and the next generation up, and today, I’m going to tell you all what you need to hear.
