Cholesytalgia RLR in the wild
First, you guys are amazing. I found your podcast after listening to an episode where you guested on the curbsiders, and I’ve been hooked since! I’m working my way through all of the rlr episodes, and recently listened to the episode about a patient with chf and cholesystalgia. The very next week, I saw a patient in my small community ED with days of RUQ pain. Recent history of infective endocarditis, complicated by significant aortic regurgitation requiring valve replacement. Valve replacement surgery complicated by 3rd degree heart block post operatively requiring pacemaker placement. Vitals were stable in triage, physical exam showed well healing surgical incisions, no signs of infection, regular rate and rhythm, mechanical valve clearly auscultated. Patient was tender in RUQ, +Murphys. No rebound or guarding. laboratory workup was unremarkable with the exception of being slightly supratherapeutic on warfarin (INR 3.3 with a target of 2-3) , ruq US showed some gallbladder wall edema, but no stones or pericholecystic fluid. per radiology report, “in the right clinical setting, this could be consistent with acute cholecystitis”.
Something did not quite feel like an acute chole, so I did a quick POCUS and on subxiphoid view I noted a HUGE effusion.
He ended up being transferred to tertiary center for pericardial window placement. I reviewed his op report, he had a 900 cc hemopericardium! Slow bleed after surgery that didn’t resolve due to anticoagulation.

Thank you guys for everything you do! Your work helps create better clinicians!!
A Medical Student Must Have!
Rabih and Reza are all-star clinicians that teach with such authenticity and humbleness the art of clinical reasoning. Learning their diagnostic schemas through videos and diagrams and reinforcing the knowledge in the context of case discussions will give you unparalleled confidence in being complete with your differential diagnosis in such a straight forward and conceptual manner. I have found so much joy in medicine through their resources and discussions!
So amazing and informative!
Fascinating cases and comprehensive discussion! The teaching videos and the reasoning process are amazing! Highly recommend!
Incredible content, even better people!
I have been listening to the clinical problem solvers, specifically Rabih and Reza for the last 3.5 years. I will forever be climbing Mt Dx for the rest of my career, however I have noticed improvement in myself when it comes to clinical reasoning and creating schemas. This is by far because I have been dedicated to listening to both Rabih and Reza discussing cases, sharing their illness scripts and schemas. They are incredible teachers and physicians but, they are also incredible individuals which makes learning that much more fun!! This is a resource that is a must have for any individual who is taking care of patients!
An amazing resource
I have been practicing medicine for a while and Reza and Rabih have really brought the spark back! I work in rural medicine and see a lot of undifferentiated disease, so this resource is truly amazing. And this is just a small part of the efforts of cpsolvers, much of which is provided free to the international medical community. A real inspiration at all levels!
Clinical Reasoning from masterclass educators
There is truly no better way of learning medicine and feeling like a detective. I enjoy listening to every case and learned so much from the case reflections. And it’s not only about learning medicine, you also learn about what it means to stay humble in medicine. I am so inspired by the RLR – learning medicine from the magician and mathemetician – it is such a privilege to learn from true masters of Clinical reasoning in a simple way. Thank you so much for everything you do <3
Lots of love,
You need this resource!
Rabih and Reza have taken medical education to the next level with their expert case discussions, well-designed schemas, and engaging videos. I use this resource all the time and it has improved both my teaching and patient care. I wish I had this resource as a medical student and resident.
If you take care of patients, you absolutely need this resource!
Thank you for making us better
I’ve been in the field for 30 years and am inspired by your (infectious) enthusiasm to teach the younger generation of doctors in how to think and problem solve in internal medicine. It’s almost a lost art that very much needed some new blood and innovative ways to revive it! You guys are rock stars!
Love your honesty, Reza and Rabih, in acknowledging how we cannot know EVERYTHING and YET, even a medical student can teach us something! … would love to meet you all in person one day!
Pinnacle of Virtual Education
Rabih and Reza are the teachers/mentors I wish I had from my formative years in training. They can teach even the most complicated topics with ease using schemas and illness scripts. It’s a sheer joy to see them tackle case challenges. “Take the ball, pass the ball”. Thank you RR for this initiative and teaching us importance of clinical reasoning and humility in medicine.
An Inspiring and Essential Resource
Rabih and Reza have created something very special with RLRCPSolvers. Their podcast episodes have helped me learn how to think critically and develop an approach to common problems in clinical medicine. The videos and figures they’ve created work to reinforce content, provoke reflection, and stimulate continued growth even after finishing the podcast episodes. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled up one of their schemas to help me tackle a real problem or chief complaint in clinic and on the wards. Their episodes are as inspiring as they are educational, and I always feel more motivated to hone my clinical reasoning skills after listening to an episode. I can’t recommend this resource enough. It has truly helped me become a better clinician.
Response from RLR From The Clinical Problem Solvers
Connor!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and kind review. It really motivates us to keep doing what we are doing and hopefully never stop innovating. Thank you. RR
