The Alpha Coaching Experience

Empowering physicians to stop sacrificing themselves and finally create a life they love.

Master your mindset. Master your money. And find the time to live your ideal life.

There is a reason that medicine doesn’t feel like the promised land that you thought it would…

You worked hard to become a physician. You deserve to be the captain of your own ship. To live a life you love. Why wait until “someday” to be happy? Why not learn the skills and make the necessary changes to enjoy the journey now?

Self-Determined Physician Model
The Alpha Coaching Experience™ focuses on…

Mindset

The #1 mistake doctors make is changing their situation before doing the tough thought-work to determine the real problem.

$

Money

Like gas for the car, money is what allows us to live the life we want. Save for tomorrow while you build cash flow for today.

$

Time

Finding that elusive work-life life balance requires intentional planning, intentional thought work, and mastery of your “why” in life.

Because when you master your mindset, money, and time… you can really start living life on your terms.

Hi, I’m Jimmy Turner MD

On the outside, I looked like I had it all together. From my days as the student body president of my medical school to the teaching awards and randomized control trial publications as an attending physician. I even had a successful online business as a podcaster and course creator.

Yet, on the inside, I was miserable. I constantly felt stuck.

Burned out and overwhelmed, I kept looking for the next accomplishment or achievement to make me happy.

I didn’t realize until much later that there is a name for this. It is called an Arrival Fallacy – The idea that the “next thing” would be what finally makes me happy.

I felt trapped in a life I didn’t want.

It was through mastering my mindset and my financial situation that I was finally able to live life on my terms.

Now, through coaching for physicians, I help other doctors find the freedom I’ve found by helping them master their mindset, their money, and their balance.

Physician Coaching is the answer.

Lil Surprenant, MD

Internal Medicine Hospitalist

My name is Lil, and I’ve worked as an IM hospitalist for many years. I’m originally from South Carolina, trained in Utah and traveled here and there before landing back home. I’ve worked in multiple hospital systems, both big and small and have travelled the road from serious burnout to real satisfaction at work.

On the personal side, this many years on the planet has allowed for a lot of experiences that give me perspective as a coach…divorce, bankruptcy (yes, I’m telling you this on a bio!), remarriage, sprinkle on a sustained 75 lb weight loss and lots of living in between.

I’m the person that you can help you bring your stuff out, no matter what it is or how you feel about it now.

I’ve got you.

Krystal Sodaitis MD

Krystal Sodaitis, MD, MPH

Pediatrician

I’m Krystal, a board-certified pediatrician, fellowship trained in academic general pediatrics. I transitioned from academic medicine to working for a health insurance company in 2013 and I’m currently a Senior Director.

I am a coach for physicians, pediatrician, wife, mother, health care executive and, life-long learner. Externally, I seemed to “have it all figured out” yet was filled with doubt, self-hatred and Imposter Syndrome. All that changed when I found coaching. I coach myself every day and use it as a leadership tool for my team and to nurture the leader in me.

Why do I love coaching gifted people?

Because the smarter someone is, the more likely they are to have an area they’re NOT good at. This fact often causes a lot of stress, pain and anxiety – and even more likely if they’ve a diagnosis that affects their ability to focus or learn.

If this sounds like you, I’m your coach.

Daniel Presutti, MD

Anesthesiologist

Originally from Connecticut, I’m Dan, academic anesthesiologist in North Carolina. Interestingly, my path into medicine was not the result of 20+ straight years of academics.

Instead, I earned my Bachelor of Science from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Post college graduation, I served as an Army Officer for 5 years, including deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003). It was during this time of service when I made the decision to change career paths and pursue medicine.

My wife, Jenna, is a CRNA and there’s never a dull moment with 3 kids, a Saint Bernard, and a Bernese Mountain Dog. I bring a variety of life experiences to my role, including a divorce, which has helped shape my views on life. I provide coaching for physicians in areas of interpersonal relationships, life balance, building self-worth and goal orientation.

Pete Baum, DO

Family Medicine

I am a husband, father, outdoor enthusiast, life coach, and Family Medicine Physician in the greater San Diego, CA area.

Like many doctors, I burned out early on and wasn’t happy.  Life coaching helped me to regain control of my life, one thought at a time.  Yes, it’s that simple…

I can help you to work through and overcome burnout, self-doubt, and imposter “syndrome.” I will help you discover insights into your relationships and empower you to change so you can start showing up as you want to be. Whether it’s money mindset, your financial goals, or starting a side-gig – we can tackle it! Every topic is coachable. Let’s get started!

Adam Broussard, MD

Pediatric Anesthesiologist

I’m Adam, a pediatric anesthesiologist, life coach, and investor. My has special interests are pediatric pain and resident education and have worked in both academic and private practices.

I enjoy helping other physicians find better work life balance through defeating burnout, spending their time more effectively, and living the life that they want today.

When not at work, I spend time with my wife, two sons, and two dogs. Adam is a budding real estate investor and entrepreneur.

Tricia James

Tricia James, MD

Internal Medicine

I am an Academic Internal Medicine physician still practicing inpatient/outpatient medicine and teaching. Coaching helped me go from feeling trapped in my job to thriving! I also have 3 young kids, so I am very familiar with the journey of balancing work and life.

Physicians are some of the most intelligent and resilient humans and I love helping them reconnect with their power. I can’t wait to help you take control of your life, dream about what could be, and then make it happen.

Eliza

Elizabeth Chiang, MD, PhD

Opthalmologist/Oculoplastic Surgeon

Call me Elisa, short for Elizabeth. I am a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained oculoplastic surgeon who has worked both in private practice, as well as for a bureaucratic hospital system.

The hospital system, along with taking 24-7 call, resulted in burnout. Although I had the financial piece of the three pillars figured out, it took coaching and working on my mindset to overcome burnout. 

I can help you overcome burnout, get out of the trap of arrival fallacy, and build your path to financial independence while enjoying the journey to get there. I can’t wait to work on your money mindset or help you toward whatever goal you want to accomplish.

Coach Michael Hersh

Michael Hersh, MD

Gastroenterologist

I’m Michael, a board-certified gastroenterologist living in Chicago, IL. I grew up in New York but have lived in the Midwest for most of my adult life. I am a husband, a father of two amazing kids, a practicing gastroenterologist, and a certified physician coach.

I found physician coaching while struggling with my own burnout. While being confronted with so many changes in healthcare, I started to feel hopeless about a career in medicine. Rather than search out solutions, I doubled down and started working even harder with the goal of exiting medicine altogether. As a result, the burnout got worse. That is when I found coaching. Through physician coaching, I learned to live a more intentional life with balance and purpose. I discovered how to dream, develop goals and become the husband, father, and physician I always wanted to be.

I enjoy coaching physicians on life balance, goal setting, money mindset, self-confidence, and relationships. Physicians are incredibly hardworking, motivated, and resilient individuals. I can’t wait to help you put all of your incredible skills to work, creating the life you always wanted.

Frequently asked questions about
coaching for physicians

Why is it called "Alpha" Coaching?
Alpha is the first letter in the Greek Alphabet.
Alpha Coaching is your first step – your Alpha Step to learning this new language and skill set to unlock your full potential.
What is the overall purpose of coaching?

Most doctors who enroll in coaching are in a point of transition, and they are looking to get the clarity and confidence they need to make a change.

They are often burned out (though not everyone we coach is burned out) and looking to make a change in medicine. This could mean that they are thinking about going part-time, changing jobs, negotiating a contract, or leaving medicine altogether.

How many coaching calls does the literature say I need?

The evidence shows that physicians need 6-8 professional coaching calls to decrease burnout and emotional exhaustion and to improve quality of life.

After this change takes place, many continue getting coached after their initial transformation takes place.  However, it is different for everyone!  Get coached as much or as little as you need.  We just want you to get to your goals!

How much does physician coaching cost?

You’ll find the that industry average to get coaching from another physician ranges from $300-$1000 per call.  For example, a common package sold by many coaches is 12 calls for $6,000, or $500 per call. Inside of ACE, you get one-on-ones, more than 30 self-paced course content, CME credits and a community of like-minded physicians at the most competitive price. 

The real question, however, is how much will it cost you if you are in the same place 12 months from now that you are right now?  What is that transformation worth to you?

“I would probably say Jimmy could charge 3 to 4 times the amount and it would be worth it. This will undoubtedly buy extra years in my career.”
