    "Your presentation was one of the favorites on the program. Personally, I was very impressed with the content and organization of your presentation and I enjoyed your engaging presentation style. As you know, your presentation engendered a lot of discussion and I feel certain those present are a lot more knowledgeable now about the real impact of Obamacare."

    "There is simply no one more skilled at talking to audiences about health care reform and the future of health care in the United States than Aaron Carroll. Aaron became a weekly and sometimes bi weekly guest on my radio show throughout the last year. I've never seen him back down from a debate, and he is one of the rare experts who is skilled at taking unscreened calls. More than any other expert we had on, he changed the way people thought of and understood health care policy. If you are looking for an expert in the future of health care in the United States, someone who can explain the issues so that anyone can understand them, someone who can answer questions respectfully and objectively - and entertain while doing so - I guarantee you that Dr. Carroll is the best guy in the whole industry."

    "Dr. Carroll was part of a high powered panel of presenters and included the President of the American Psychological Association and a Vice-President of Anthem/Wellpoint. However, he stood out in this prestigious group as the best and most informative presenter. He was the most highly rated of the presenters by the audience with many requests to invite him to present again. He is articulate, clear, thoughtful and organized. He is just the sort of keynote speaker that every organization hopes to find for their meeting. "

    - Blue Cross Blue Shield of IL

    "Aaron Carroll possesses an incredible depth of knowledge about our healthcare policy, which he shares in a dynamic presentation that entertains and educates. I was particularly impressed by how he used data to bring the subject alive, engaging the audience and forcing them to rethink their perceptions about healthcare reform. Aaron's insights are right on target. He puts aside partisanship to take a straightforward, honest look at where we stand with healthcare reform and where we need to go. He 'WOWed' our audience with his grasp of the issues."
