Medical Center Health System, Odessa, Texas

“I have had the pleasure of hearing Dr. S. Berkowitz speak to the Medical Center Health System Medical Staff and Board of Directors, as well as the Texas Hospital Association Council consisting of Vice-Presidents of Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officers. In all occasions his presentation was tailored to the audience, well received and energizing for those fortunate to have attended.”

Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta

“I had the opportunity to see Dr. Berkowitz talk at our state hospital association meeting, and I knew that I needed to invite him to talk to our physician leaders. Indeed, his talk on “Turbocharging Quality” proved to be insightful, engaging, and humorous. He received the highest possible reviews, and we hope to have him back again.”
