Interested in booking Dr. DeChant for your next event?

"Dr. DeChant was a terrific presenter for our recent Kareo webinar. He has a gentle but knowledgeable approach and his passion for the topic and commitment to educating his audience, is evident.

 

I appreciated the valuable content Dr. DeChant presented in his webinar, which included relevant information about physician burnout, personal examples from himself and other physicians, a little humor, and some excellent tools and resources he recommended to our webinar participants. We would definitely have Dr. DeChant back again to do another webinar!
