  1. David,

    I am a new primary care sports medicine physician that just started my practice in an orthopedic office in south Texas. I’ve just found your podcast and now follow you on Twitter. I’ve enjoyed what you’ve put together so far, but would love to know more. I’m always wanted to improve my knowledge and stay abreast of new developments. I just listened to a podcast in which you introduced the idea of an online conference. I think that is a great idea and would absolutely take part in that. I mainly listen to your podcasts on my way home, so an audio format works great. However, I like the idea of going over imaging examples, so I understand the need for a visual part of thd conference. One thing I would like to understand better is how I can benefit my surgical colleagues and see their perspective when evaluating patients. Feel free to add my email to your list of subscribers.
    Thanks again,
    Mike Montgomery MD

    • Hey I really appreciate the feedback. I might reach out soon to discuss my idea, and I’ll definitely discuss it further on the podcast. Thanks so much!
