Wealth Management for Physicians: An interview with Bill Martin, CFA
Thanks for joining me on "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner." My special guest today is Bill Martin, CFA, Chief Wealth Officer at Earned Wealth. During this 30-minute program, we discuss the unique and sometimes challenging financial situation of physicians. For example, although doctors may be relatively high earners, because of lengthy postgraduate training programs that can last up to 7 years after medical school, doctors may not start earning high salaries until much later than their nonphysician peers. In addition, they are often saddled with enormous college and medical school debt.  Bill explains his approach to helping physicians optimize their investments and savings to ultimately achieve “financial wellness.” He contrasts wealth managers who operate as “fiduciaries” versus “brokers.” He also defines the designations “CFP” and “CFA.” Bill is the author of “The Smart Financial Advisor,” which offers tips to his colleagues about employing financial technology and goals-based investing. Bill explained that Earned Wealth offers several tiers of service. The first one is a free financial planning app, available at your app store. On Apple, it’s easy to find with a large green “E” at “Earned.” The next tier is an in-depth financial overview available for a one-time fee. If applicable, Earned Wealth offers a number of ongoing financial services for physicians who choose to become regular clients. I think you’ll enjoy listening to Bill explain a little bit about financial services and how they may apply to your situation. You can contact Bill through Earned Wealth:http://www.earnedwealth.comFor our listeners, Earned Wealth is offering $500 towards your Wealth Diagnostic with code ArtOfMed. The Wealth Diagnostic is a deep check-up on your finances, billed on a flat fee.

How to be a compassionate and efficient medical doctor: an interview with Bradley Block, MD
Many thanks to Bradley B. Block, MD, for speaking with me today on “The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner.” Dr. Block is an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist in Garden City, New York.  Recently, Brad was kind enough to interview me on his podcast, “Physician’s Guide to Doctoring.” We talked about one of my favorite topics, locum tenens and my book, “The Locum Life: A Physician’s Guide to Locum Tenens.” Today, Dr. Block shares his tips for avoiding burnout in private practice.  For example, Dr. Block greets patients and the people they bring with them, looking long and hard enough “to notice their eye color.” I was impressed to learn that his medical group has a “patient experience” committee, which demonstrates their commitment to improving the patient/doctor experience. Further, his group is owned and run by physicians who easily understand and prioritize their colleagues’ values. Please tune in to our 30-minute discussion to learn more ways to run a compassionate and efficient private practice. As a bonus, we also chat about my ENT experience and the cool reassuring diagnosis I got of “presbylarnyx”-oh no! You can learn more about Dr. Block here: https://www.entandallergy.com/doctor/bradley-block-md Here’s a link to his podcast: Physician’s Guide to DoctoringThanks for joining us!If you enjoy an episode, please share with friends and colleagues.

Poetry and Psychiatry: An Interview with Richard Berlin, MD
 We spend a lot of time on this podcast discussing the business of medicine, which is terribly important. In the most recent episode (#98), for example, I discussed NALTO, the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations with Tanika Williams and Olivia D'Angelo. However, just as important is the art of medicine. That's why I'm delighted that Dr. Richard Berlin has joined the show today. Dr. Berlin is a published poet who just retired from clinical medicine. Dr. Berlin has been passionate about poetry since childhood and is still in touch with his 10th-grade teacher who taught poetry. Several singer-songwriters of the '60s, like Bob Dylan, were also inspirations. But it wasn't until mid-life that he became a serious writer. Although there was never enough time to write when he worked full-time, he tried to "read a lot and write a lot." Dr. Berlin sees many parallels between writing poetry and the practice of medicine. During our 35-minute interview, we discussed an author we both admire, Richard Selzer, MD. Dr. Selzer was one of the first contemporary physician-authors in the US. As a successful physician/writer, he became a role model for me and Dr. Berlin. Dr. Berlin started our program by reading a poem he wrote while staying in a cabin on Monhegan Island in Maine. To learn how a lobsterman's trained eye resembles a physician's, please listen to our program! "How JFK Killed My Father" is Dr. Berlin's first book of poetry, available on Amazon:https://amzn.to/3R2vOpe. He has several other books and more books on the way. Dr. Berlin has also published poetry at Psychiatric Times for the last 25 years:https://www.psychiatrictimes.com/view/25-years-of-poetry-of-the-timesDr. Berlin can be reached at his website: HTTP://www.richardmberlin.comIf you enjoy an episode, please share with friends and colleagues.

Contract Diagnostics: An interview with Jon Appino
Welcome to The Art of Medicine, the program that explores the arts, business, and clinical aspects of the practice of medicine. I’m your host, Dr. Andrew Wilner.  Today, I have the pleasure of speaking with Jon Appino, Principal and Founder of Contract Diagnostics. Jon’s been running Contract Diagnostics for more than 10 years, helping physicians analyze and negotiate their contracts with respect to salary, benefits, and covenants.  Jon grew up in a medical family. In college, he was a biology and biochemistry major and pre-med. Ultimately, his entrepreneurial spirit led him to pursue medically-related business opportunities rather than attending medical school.  In this episode, we discuss Jon’s motivation and approach to helping physicians achieve the most favorable business contracts. He has had experience with literally thousands of physician contracts. During our discussion, Jon addresses critical features of both locum tenens and permanent contracts. It’s been my experience that when push comes to shove at the workplace, it’s what written in the contract that really matters.  Please watch our 40-minute discussion to hear how John can help determine whether your contract is fair or could be improved. Jon insists that every physician has a “story,” and each contract must be individualized. Jon is a big fan of “The Art of Medicine,” which I really appreciate! You can learn more about Jon Appino here: https://contractdiagnostics.comOr Call: 888.574.5526 Thanks for watching! If you enjoy an episode, please share with friends and colleagues.

"Mindful MD," a book by Gail Gazelle, MD
It's a pleasure to welcome Gail Gazelle, MD, to The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner. Dr. Gazelle is the author of the new book, “Mindful MD: 6 ways mindfulness restores your autonomy and cures healthcare burnout.” We discussed the incredibly prevalent problem of physician burnout, which has been exacerbated by the pandemic. Dr. Gazelle observed that physicians are a set-up for burnout. During training, “comparisons, ratings, and rankings” focus on our shortcomings, not our strengths. Dr. Gazelle experienced her own burnout and eventually developed effective strategies to combat it. One solution was to change the way she interacted with her life circumstances. She discovered that mindfulness,” the ability to train our minds to focus,” can be enormously helpful to overcome the “negativity basis” of the human brain. Over the last 12 years, she has coached over 500 physicians and physician leaders to help them improve their lives. Please watch our 30-minute discussion. You can find her book on Amazon and in my library. You can learn more about Gail Gazelle, MD here: https://gailgazelle.com Thanks for watching!If you enjoy an episode, please share with friends and colleagues.

"The Butterfly Cage": an interview with author Rachel Zemach
It's a pleasure to welcome Rachel Zemach to The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner.Rachel is the author of the new book, “The Butterfly Cage, joy, heartache, and corruption: Teaching while Deaf in a California public school.” Rachel was born hearing impaired in one ear but learned to speak. However, at age 10 she had an accident that suddenly rendered her deaf. She wore a hearing aid, learned sign language, and has become an advocate for the Deaf community.  Rachel has come to know the Deaf community and is a strong advocate for American Sign Language. She has reservations about the value of cochlear implants for children. In her experience, American Sign Language is a more powerful communication method than spoken words for a deaf child. I was able to interview Rachel via Zoom as she was able to follow the closed captions of my questions! We also discuss whether there is still a stigma to being deaf. Please watch our 30-minute discussion. For those who can’t hear, closed captions are available. You can find "The Butterfly Cage" on Amazon and in my library. You can learn more about Rachel Zemach here: https://www.rachelzemach.com/ Thanks for listening!  If you enjoy an episode, please share with friends and colleagues.

Today, I have the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Frank Veith. Dr. Veith is a renowned vascular surgeon who recently published a book, “The Medical Jungle”. Dr. Veith has had a long and storied medical career. I was particularly intrigued to speak with him about the evolution of vascular surgery over the last 50 years ago when I learned that he graduated medical school the year I was born!

axeALS Foundation: Supporting ALS Patients
Today, I have the pleasure of speaking with Amanda Stevens about ALS-amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Amanda is the wife of Eric Stevens, a former St. Louis Rams football player diagnosed with ALS on August 27, 2019. Amanda is also the Executive Director of the axeALS Foundation.While several Food and Drug Administration-approved treatments for ALS exist, unfortunately, none of them have much impact on long-term survival and quality of life. Drugs in development are often out of the reach of most patients, even when these treatments seem promising.To help patients with ALS find treatment as soon as possible, Amanda and Eric formed the axeALS Foundation to raise ALS awareness and support families with ALS.Recently, the axeALS Foundation partnered with the Sean M. Healey & AMG Center for ALS at Massachusetts General Hospital to establish a new Expanded Access Protocol (EAP) program at the University of California, Irvine. Under the direction of Namita Goyal, MD, Professor of Neurology, UCI School of Medicine, and Director of UCI Health ALS Services, the multiyear program will expand access to investigational drugs for 30 people living with ALS who do not qualify for clinical trials.The axeALS Foundation has also helped create legislation such as the “Act for ALS” to increase expanded access to ALS patients to drugs in development.Please watch this 25-minute interview with Amanda Stevens about her family’s struggle with ALS, the work of the axeALS Foundation,  and hopes for improved futures for people with ALS.axeALS will host a fundraiser with Athlete’s First in Newport Beach, CA, on June 12, 2023.

Smoking Cessation: A New Approach
Welcome to The Art of Medicine, the program that explores the arts, business, and clinical aspects of the practice of medicine! I’m your host, Dr. Andrew Wilner. As a physician, I see death related to cigarettes every day. With all the other health threats in the world, the risks of smoking often don’t make the front page. However, according to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), Cigarette smoking causes almost half a million deaths in the US each year, more than motor vehicle accidents, firearms, alcohol, and illegal drug use combined. Once people start smoking, it can be difficult to stop, in large part because of the addictive nature of nicotine.Today, I had the pleasure of speaking with Brian Quigley. Brian is the CEO of Qnovia, a company with a unique approach to help people stop smoking. We discussed how difficult it is for people to stop smoking due to the physiologic dependence on nicotine coupled with behavioral addiction, such as having a cigarette with a cup of coffee. According to Brian, most people try and stop “cold turkey,” which is usually unsuccessful.Please watch this 25-minute interview with Brian Quigley to learn more about a new strategy for smoking cessation.For more information, check out his company’s website here: www.Qnovia.comYou can also watch "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner" on the web: www.youtube.com/c/andrewwilnermdauthorFeedback is welcome!

Medical Missions: Doing Good and Avoiding Burnout
Welcome to The Art of Medicine, the program that explores the arts, business, and clinical aspects of the practice of medicine! I’m your host, Dr. Andrew Wilner. Today, I spoke with Joe Sherman, MD, pediatrician and physician coach. Many physician coaches are out there, and I’ve interviewed several for this program. But when I learned about Dr. Sherman’s extensive medical mission work in Uganda and Bolivia, I had to speak with him. My own medical mission work in the Philippines started over ten years ago. Traipsing through the jungle to remote locations to treat indigenous people who had never seen a Western physician before was an amazing experience. It opened my eyes to a larger world beyond traditional private practice and academic medicine. There’s no doubt that the experience molded me into a better physician. It also raised questions about how best to deliver care globally to underserved areas. Dr. Sherman explained that the benefits of a medical mission go both ways. While volunteer physicians and other healthcare workers provide free care, they receive intangible but priceless returns that stay with them for the rest of their lives. Dr. Sherman’s broad experience and thoughtful analysis come through during this interview.When I asked Dr. Sherman whether a physician considering a medical mission should try it, his answer was an unequivocal “Yes!”Please watch this 30-minute interview with Dr. Joe Sherman to learn why.To learn more about medical missions or to inquire about Dr. Sherman’s physician coaching, please check out his website: www.joeshermanmd.comYou can contact Dr. Sherman here: linkedin.com/in/joeshermanmd email: joe@joeshermanmd.comFeedback is welcome!

Fighting for Air: One man's commitment to help babies breathe
Welcome to The Art of Medicine, the program that explores the arts, business, and clinical aspects of the practice of medicine! I’m your host, Dr. Andrew Wilner. On this program, I love to speak with physicians who have made important contributions to medical practice and with physician authors. My guest today, Dr. Ola Saugstad, fits both of these categories. Dr. Saugstad is a pediatrician and neonatologist. He decided early in his career to investigate ways to help the most vulnerable of patients, newborn infants. He challenged the standard practice of administering 100% oxygen to all newborns who struggled to breathe, recognizing that too much oxygen could be harmful. It took decades of research into the pathophysiology of neonatal hypoxia for the medical community to accept his conclusions and incorporate them into practice guidelines. The result? Hundreds of thousands of babies worldwide are saved every year!Dr. Saugstad relates his story in the engaging memoir, “Fighting for Air.” This new book is a fascinating read for those interested in the obstacles an independent thinker like Dr. Saugstad faced when challenging the status quo. It also provides a valuable behind-the-scenes look at scientific research.To contact Dr. Saugstad, please call Dea Shandera-Hunter at 747.239.1715 or deashandera@yahoo.com. To purchase “Fighting for Air” from Amazon, click on this affiliate link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1958848034/ref=as_sl_pc_as_ss_li_til?tag=andrewwilner-20&linkCode=w00&linkId=49a550012664413c99c4a44f5483b401&creativeASIN=1958848034 You can also listen to "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner" on the web: https://andrewwilner.buzzsprout.com/ or streaming on your favorite podcast player!

A Psychiatrist Writes: An interview with Steve Moffic, MD
Many thanks to Steve Moffic, MD, writer and award-winning academic psychiatrist, for joining me on The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner. Dr. Moffic was introduced to me by Ronald Pies, MD, another psychiatrist and writer whom I interviewed in Episode #63. Dr. Pies recruited Dr. Moffic as a blogger for Psychiatric Times. Dr. Moffic has written on diverse topics including climate change, gaslighting and anti-semitism. He also creates weekly videos about “Psychiatry and Society.”Dr. Moffic was a pioneer in applying managed care to people with mental health disorders. He led a program that tried to balance quality of care and financial constraints. Based on his experience, Dr. Moffic wrote a book on the ethical challenges of managed healthcare, “The Ethical Way: Challenges and Solutions for Managed Behavioral Healthcare.” The controversy surrounding his approach led the President of the American Psychiatric Association to publicly pronounce Dr. Moffic  “evil.” On a more auspicious occasion, Dr. Moffic received the “Hero of Public Psychiatry” award from the American Psychiatric Association. Please join us for a fascinating 30-minute discussion.To purchase “The Ethical Way: Challenges and Solutions for Managed Behavioral Healthcare,”Click here: https://amzn.to/3varEPUHere are links to a few other of Dr. Moffic’s publications:Antisemitism and Psychiatry: Recognition, Prevention, and InterventionsCombating Physician Burnout: A Guide for PsychiatristsMental Health Care for Allied Health and Nursing ProfessionalsYou can also listen to "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner" on your favorite podcast player!

"How Heroes Heal:" an interview with Marilyn Wooley, PhD
Many thanks to Marilyn Wooley, Ph.D., for joining me on The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner. Dr. Wooley is a psychologist and traumatologist who works with first responders. She is the author of “How Heroes Heal,” a book that discusses the extraordinary experiences of first responders that can result in debilitating post-traumatic stress injury and even suicide. Based on her many years of experience treating thousands of first responders who have faced extraordinary stressors, Dr. Wooley noticed patterns of debilitating symptoms that result from trauma on the job. She observed that symptoms of traumatic injury in first responders can resemble those experienced by soldiers in wartime. Sufferers may experience emotional distress due to fear, guilt, and shame resulting from perceived failure on the job. Inappropriate fight-or-flight responses may plague the individual.Over the years, Dr. Wooley has identified helpful treatment strategies to treat these symptoms, leading to “post-traumatic growth” rather than emotional and physical disability. By embarking on a “Heroes Journey,” sufferers can work through their experiences and come out stronger at the end. “How Heroes Heal” offers inspiration and hope to first responders, their colleagues, and families.Please join us for this informative and fascinating 30-minute discussion.To purchase “How Heroes Heal,” Dr. Wooley, please go to:https://amzn.to/3Y5hptzThanks for listening to this program on YouTube!  Feedback is welcome!
