I’m overwhelmed by your enthusiasm and, dare I say, we’re just getting started! I’m honored to start this year off with one of the giants, Dr. Kim Williams. Since 2013, Dr. Williams has been the Head of Cardiology at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. In addition, he is also the former president of the American College of Cardiology where he was famously quoted as saying, “There are two kinds of Cardiologists: vegans and those who haven’t read the data.” This is a man who isn’t afraid to mince words, which is why I’m excited to share his powerful stance with you today. Dr. Williams shares four questions he asks all of his heart patients who have recently undergone surgery. These simple magic questions unlock a sense of empowerment and radically improve the long term success rates of his patients. empower his patients and often change the course and long term outcome and success rate. We are all fortunate to have him as a PLANTSTRONG advocate and leading by example in the field of medicine. shining example of the future of Medicine. Enjoy and Happy New Year!
Fantastic interview!!! I have watched videos of your father, Michael Gregor and Dr. Fung, now you. Has changed my life. Lost 45lbs, exercise everyday and eat a plant based diet!! My heroes, thank you!!!!
Wow!! Doctor Kim Williams is such an amazing person!! Great interview Rip!!
Amazing and inspiring story of Dr. Williams. Thanks for sharing, doc!
On top of all the great work and wisdom you've been sharing with us... Thank you!!
I can listen to Dr. Williams all day. He's so articulate, wise and kind. And funny too. I just love him. Aside form his personality, he has such a handle on the importance of lifestyle but doesn't dismiss medical intervention, when necessary. I wish he was my doctor, but next best thing: my doc is in conversation with him. That alone raises my respect for her.
Can't believe that before this video staeted was an advertisment from Stop & Shop to not forget to buy your "grilled steak" for the summer!
Thank you so much. I love all of your interviews but this one was one of my favorites 🙏🙏
I actually have a good male friend from junior high (so for 55+ years) named Kim Williams (and we "grew up" in DeKalb, IL!) Thank you, Rip and Dr. Williams for this great episode.
Blocked artery I year ago. Love Drs 💘 2022 kale.

Great interview! I love listening to Dr. Williams! That you!
Please line up an interview with Dr. Baxter Montgomery, mentioned by Dr. Williams. Dr. Montgomery is an inspiration. Gwyn Whittaker at Greenfare in Virginia hosted him for a presentation, and it was fantastic.
I really like to listen to Dr Wiilliams
Thanks Rip and Kim...AWESOME!
