A well balanced, professional review from someone that has never met me. I appreciate the impartial comments from the good folks at Kirkus (thankfully it was a good review).
I was invited to take part in a video for the Beryl Institute that was presented in Dallas in April 2015. All patients featured in the video hail from Carolinas Healthcare System.
