Testimonials

Gannon Dudlar

Chicago, IL

Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital

Rob always brings it back to "Ok, so what exactly do you do?" when he is interviewing people and as a community doc, I value practice over theory.

Steve Davis

Denver, CO

The content is great, and I've learned things that have helped me directly in clinical practice, from splinting to DKA. Dr. Orman covers more than just clinical medicine; he also covers lifestyle, night shifts, investing. Medicine is more than knowing pathophys and pharm--it's also about how to deal with people effectively and so much more.

Catherine Michael

Indianapolis, IN

St. Vincent Hospital

ERcast is informative, packing a lot into a short time. I enjoy the sense of camaraderie between the educators, the insider medical humor and the shared challenges that go along with practicing emergency medicine.

Cynthia Griffin

Madison, WI

University of Wisconsin Medflight

Great host! Down to earth, asks the questions I'm thinking of, has a humble attitude and is funny and entertaining. It's obvious that Rob practices ED, which I appreciate since academics is nothing like community, and I need to know how to deal with patients without always having a consultant on hand.

Andrew Bonnell

I collect info from a large variety of sources, so I listen to a lot of the other stuff out there already. ERcast specifically provides guidance on not-strictly-EM/CC that I don't get elsewhere, like the anorexia nervosa or suicide risk assessment episodes. More of the human side of things.

Andy Lichtenheld

Minneapolis, MN

Hennepin County Medical Center

ERcast shaped the physician I aspired to be throughout medical school and now as a resident ERcast is like an old, trusted friend who sits down to share wisdom and knowledge that is as broad and variable as is the world of emergency medicine.

Joseph Colucci

Boston, MA

Student, Boston University School of Medicine

Rob focuses on relevant topics that aren't too hyper-technical. I've listened to the suicide risk assessment episode about a half-dozen times (all before med school!). Most importantly, Rob is a phenomenal educator who clearly puts time and effort into presenting his points effectively and engagingly. It works, and it's much appreciated.
