Number 3: Bravery: Do not be afraid to do the right thing.
Number 4: Kids do not have a return policy. Be ready when it’s time to begin your family.

Notable quotes from Dr. Hochman interview:
I had contemplated leaving medicine for a little while… I was burned out, even in a private practice setting.
It’s disheartening when patients come in demanding something you know will hurt them.
There are all these things that are happening that essentially take our autonomy away from us.
My hope is that once physicians wake and realize there’s more to life… because there are enough of us in private practice to make our own change.
