Carl Lundstrom is an Internal Medicine specialist at the Mayo Clinic. He describes his job as a cross between a detective and a conductor. He's a detective when seeking the source of his patients' problems and a conductor when he puts together an ensemble of treatments.

Carl is also a cancer survivor. He says it's made him a better doctor. Choral music is at the heart of his playlist.
