"ZDogg (or Dr. Damania) is one of the finest, funniest, and informative speakers I’ve ever heard. Hands down the most entertaining doctor I have ever heard present. My body is still sore from the profound laughter he induced…and his message about medicine’s future and the importance of human touch can’t be emphasized enough. "

- Dr. Ronan Kavanagh, Co-founder, dotMed Conference
