His programs are supported by highly credible references from well-respected CME and health care professionals.

Dr. Mackles addressed a group of 45-50 attendees on his program, Doctor, Tie Your Shoes Before You Trip – The Prevention of Medical Errors. The responses from the evaluations were outstanding. The presentation was video fed live to our sister hospital and we videotaped the program and plan to use it for in-house training purposes over the next 6 months. We were very pleased with Dr. Mackles’ presentation and believe it was valuable for all who attended.
