8:35 am where they've organized all the medical literature ove the past tenures. all you have to do is put in your diagnosis, the city you live in and instantaneously you'll get the identities of the physicians and the hospitals who haveone the best work. the second is, all the major hospitals now have terrific weites that list the specialties of their physicians and, third, we're a very generous society. we have philanthropies for every single disease, and each of those disease-specific philanthropies has resources and materials to help patients that have been diagnosed with it. all these resources are free for everyone. >> and that is so very important. at me because i had my -- i know i need to come in anand get mylu ot and you're looking at me as my doctor right now and i'll get that. thank you very much. leslie and gail, so vital and to be able to get something out ofofhis book. i'll come in and see you real soon, gail. thank you, lese.
