LARRY BURK, MD, NationalRad musculoskeletal radiologist and practicing holistic radiologist, will now be offering COMFORT TALK training to healthcare professionals and institutions around the world with Elvira Lang, MD, an interventional radiologist, former Associate Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School and founder of HYPNALGESICS.

Comfort Talk is based on the award-winning book Patient Sedation Without Medication, published by Dr. Lang in 2009.
