  A local physician might be one of Rochester's biggest supporters.

Dr. Amol Shrikhande, a nephrologist, moved here with his family five years ago.  Before that, he lived in Connecticut, Boston, St. Louis and New York City.

Dr. Shrikhande has written a book called Rochesternomics: Why, Statistically Speaking, You Should Live in Rochester, New York.

In his book and his blog, he uses data to make the case for a metropolitan region he says is much undersold.
