“Anybody who thinks they can do this alone, you can’t. So you have to accept that you have to find people that are willing to help you.” (6:14)

“The majority of the major successes I have had have been the direct result of things that I have failed at multiple times.” (7:49)

“Say what you want, say where you want to be, and the people who are close to you make it very transparent ultimately what your vision is and do they support that or not. Get that established right off the bat, and once those things become in line, then I think the trajectory of your success will parallel that.” (19:12)

“You chose a great career, we're here to tell that you did. Now it’s just what you make of it.” (20:12)

“You have to have and surround yourself with other people and a diversity of doctors that have a constant pulse, as opposed to you being the only heartbeat there.” (35:10)
