Notable Quotes:

“I just did not feel complete if I didn't do my all.” – Dr. Berry Pierre

“Your patients understand that you are human. And if your patients understand you are human, they're going to understand, like ‘the same account that’s telling me medical staff may also tell me something about politics, may also tell me something about music, may also tell me something about a sporting event,’ because that's how a human typically works. If you want to have the social media platforms where literally all you talk about is this one thing, you can do so, but understand that kind of keeps you limited.” – Dr. Berry Pierre

“I talk about how deadly misinformation is. And the reason why – as a health professional – we got to take some of that blame [is] because we're not there because we were not online because we were not active, we allowed people who were active but were uneducated or did not have the professional credibility to be saying the stuff they say to kind of just run their mouth and then gain an audience.” – Dr. Berry Pierre“It's very important to kind of hear people get it from our perspective, because for too long, the physician perspective has been absent, and the lack of expertise because of it has been detrimental and cost a lot of lives.” – Dr. Berry Pierre
