Join Norman Regional Health System’s Krishna Vedala, MD, MPH, Dipl. ABOM and Raghuveer Vedala, MD, FAAFP, Dipl. ABOM, as they discuss trending healthcare topics through conversations on Vital Visions: The Vedala Brothers Podcast.
The Norman Regional providers, and brothers, hope to use their podcast to help patients start conversations with their primary care provider about difficult questions they may have. No topics are off-limits as the Vedala brothers hope to foster open communication for improved patient-centered care.
Vital Visions with the Vedala Brothers is a project that physicians have wanted to start for a while, dating back to their days in medical school. With the Vedalas’ dream for this podcast coming to life, they will be able to bridge the gap between providers and patients, providing helpful and valuable information to the public.
