I’ve been listening to YouTube videos by Dr. Matthew Weiner, a bariatric dr. He may be the best educator yet. I highly suggest checking him out!

Hi Barbara, Thank you for the suggestion. I am aware of Dr Weiner’s work and agree he is a great educator. When time allows, I will see if he wants to come on the podcast. : )
