Dr. Andrew Alexis and Dr. Adam Friedman

Tune in to hear how it all went down. You couldn’t be in the room where it happened, but after this podcast you might have well been. Learn from one of the greats as I pick his brain on all things, medical and aesthetic, SOC. C to it you don’t miss this podcast.

A CME exam is available for this podcast.
