This podcast, Dr. Abby Elliott returns and the debut of Dr. Natalie Stoltman, both primary care physicians with Lakeview Clinic. They are both here for the third episode of Ridgeview Podcast CME Series: Journal Review. This is the episode where our speakers talk through new, practice changing and/or just interesting journal articles. In this episode we have six articles addressing subjects related to primary care, including antibiotic presecribing, weight loss modalities, intermittent fasting, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, LDL levels in relation to coronary plaque, and proton pump inhibitors. The articles referenced in this podcast are linked in the attached show notes.

Enjoy the podcast.
