    What’s good everyone, New series!!! Sometimes you have to meet doctors where they’re at. It takes a lot to get on a podcast and be 100% honest about how your practice and put your name on it. So, I’ve started a series where I interview doctors who have important stories for us to learn from – they just would rather stay anonymous. I don’t have a problem with it, and neither should you. Information is power, and we got a ways to learn before we can say we’re in the driver’s seat with healthcare. My very first guest is a physician who trained at one of the finest medical institutions in world and decided to join a private practice. He lets us in to what it was like for a hedge fund / venture capitalist firm to purchase his group and the drastic effects it had afterwards. Doc keeps it real on this episode. He also talked about: Making hard decisions between happiness and the almighty dollar His attending’s thoughts on locum tenens What does being a partner mean in private practice The warning signs we all need

    It’s well known that doctors put patients first even though it may have negative social effects on doctors. Whether we call it professionalism or an edict, this way of life has allowed us to be viewed as unbiased advocates for our patients.   Dr. Danielle Ofri joins me on this episode to discuss an Op-Ed she wrote in the NY Times last year discussing if our professionalism is being taken advantage of by hospitals.  Dr. Danielle Ofri  is an internist at Bellevue Hospital and NYU School of Medicine. She writes regularly for the New York Times, Slate Magazine and other publications about medicine and the doctor-patient relationship.

    So back in the days of medical school, I used to be able to brag about eating a BigMac and then be able to run a 5 minute mile on the treadmill. Well those days are long gone. I can’t run anywhere near that fast and I still got the fast food habit. To make matters worse, how easy is it to get something healthy while on night shift and its 3AM?!! I invited Dr. Siobahn Key to help us understand that weight is a common struggle for physicians and we often feel that we should have it figured it. Let’s get real - there are plenty of aspects of our job that make it easy to gain and hard to lose weight. Dr. Siobhan Key is both a Family Physician, and Obesity Medicine and  Weight Loss Coach for Physicians. She is the host of a weekly podcast Weight Solutions for Physicians. Her passion is helping people learn to stop emotional eating and feel confident in their ability to manage their weight for the rest of their life.   Disclaimer: By listening to this podcast, you agree not to use this podcast as medical advice to

    We’re on to Day 2 of the Docs Outside the Box Virtual Summit. Yesterday, we heard from Dr. Carmen Brown on how leaving the US to practice overseas both revitalized her career and her mental well- being. Today we’re shifting to creating wealth for yourself but not through your job. A lot of people who have detached from their 9 to 5 refer back to the book called Rich Dad, Poor Dad as the catalyst. This book was written by Robert Kiyosaki in 1997 and told the story of his 2 dads – his real father (poor dad) and the father of his best friend (rich dad) – and the ways both men shaped his thoughts on money and investing  My next guest, Dr. Peter Kim has been doing the same for some time now. He’s he runs the famous blog Passive Income MD, and Curbside Real Estate, which is a concierge service for physicians looking to buy real estate.

    Hey all and welcome to Day 1 of the Virtual Summit, In this episode, we’re bringing back a guest from way back. From Episode 1 and the land down under - Dr. Carmen Brown is back to speak about living in Australia and New Zealand. Her episode is the highest downloaded episode for the podcast, and has been the spark that helped this show to gain traction with you all. Now a 10 year veteran of living in Australia / New Zealand, you’re going to hear more about the mindset hurdles she and her husband got past to live life on their own terms. Often times, we get caught up on “what I should do,” or “traditionally this,” but fail to realize those thoughts prevent us from finding true happiness. For Dr. Carmen and her husband, the road to happiness started was realizing that the status quo was unacceptable.    Resources: Confessions of a Dr Mom
