Client Comments

“My experience with Dr. Hudson was very different. He used his experience in mental health to support me in my desire to improve both professionally and personally. I highly recommend Coaching for Physicians to any physician that has (these) experiences: For those in transitions of location or job…For those feeling abused by their experiences in training, their employer, their patients…For those working in healthcare organizations where teambuilding is particularly important.. For those experiencing or at risk for burn‐out…For those feeling the stress of a professional career that forces individuals to the edge of work‐ life balance…For those feeling under scrutiny from authorities (third party payers, state organizations, employers) or from patients… For those experiencing heavy workloads… For those managing time constraints… For those who are feeling that medicine is not fulfilling…For those striving to improve professional and personal relationships…In short, I recommend coaching for all physicians.”  Telemedicine Physician/Tennessee
