by Margaret Winders
“It’s amazing to me that a doctor actually takes time to give people such valuable information. Doctors DO NOT have time to do that in their offices and that can leave us with a large sense of frustration and despair. Thank you, Dr. Hedberg! Thank you for taking the time! If we are more educated about our body and mind we will definitely move to a better and more peaceful world!”
by Dr. Susie G, DPT
“The Dr. Hedberg show is jam-packed with priceless information. The episodes are a perfect length, to the point and easy to follow. His podcast makes learning about the body easy and applicable. One of the best healthcare related podcasts out there. Highly recommend subscribing!“
