This past summer, I have slowed down with podcast releases, blogs, nearly coming to a pause. With the kids off for the summer, I have fallen asleep watching more movies than I can recall, turned the backyard into a summer destination…those have been my priorities. For the rest of the summer, I will continue to release episodes every 2 weeks. I try to practice what I preach and slow down, be intentional with time.Last week, over the holiday weekend, we traveled to Clayton, New Mexico to see the dinosaur footprints [without a camper and all intact vehicle]! I can clearly say it was so cool …

Take a Listen!What is self worth? It’s a question that, at least for me, my aanswer has changed over time. I currently define my worth as a human, thus I am worthy. If I think back more than ten years ago, I may have drank the Kool-aid and tied up my worth in my work and outcomes with patients. Thank goodness time and wisdom (or at least I think) has changed that and my views on many things in life.How do you define your self worth? Is it limited to just your career, accolades, or titles?A physician is a human as well. By breathing, you are worthy.In this most recent episode of…

That's the kind of transformative journey I share on this episode of The Worthy Physician, where we explore the 'loss of self' that so many of us, especially in high-pressure careers like medicine, often fa…

Take a Listen!In the most recent episode, Dr. Yolanda Bogaert sat down with me to discuss her journey through burnout/moral injury. What stuck out to me was when she mentioned meeting the patient where the patient was. I think many times we forget to connect with patients, and others, on a human level. It’s easy to be in our heads, and not fully within the moment or experience. It is easy to always be looking at the clock. I have them strategically placed in my exam rooms to try and help keep me on time. But there are times when I wish time could stand still. I went into med…
