"My experiences with Mark have all exceeded my expectations. He is a champion of the patient voice who integrates the patient perspective into his practice and his teaching. He is a listener as well as an educator and goes above and beyond for his patients, students, and colleagues alike. Mark is a leader in modern pain care, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from him and look forward to what the future brings."

"There are many clinicians out there that pretend to know what they are doing and don't take the time to continue to keep up with the latest information and research. That is not the case with Jarod. Jarod takes on learning and teaching with excitement and enthusiastic curiosity and teaches others the most current information about best practices for patient care. Not only does he teach others, he takes complex information and concepts and makes them easy enough for anyone to understand. Talk about an amazing way to teach! I highly recommend taking his courses!"

"Jarod Hall is one of those people that just oozes passion for this profession. In my experience, all of my favorite professors, clinical instructors, and mentors have been extremely passionate. There is generally a correlate of intellect with passion as well, and he is one of the brightest minds I know. When you combine this level of passion with intellect, you get an extremely effective teacher and mentor. Jarod has always been someone I look up too in this field, and any students and professionals would be extremely lucky to have his guidance through a mentorship!"
