“Thank you for the articles! They were well written and a great selection for me as a psych QME. I continue to be impressed at how much I get from your programs compared to the conferences I have attended with hyperbolic lawyers and bored physicians. I faxed my answers to you yesterday. I hope you can e-mail them to me.”Dr. Bartell
