Teaching doctors how to live life on their terms through physician coaching


Are you living the dream? Or do you feel stuck or trapped in medicine?

As physicians, we sacrifice ourselves for the greater good. But at some point, we realize that when we say “Yes” to the committees, book-chapters, meetings, late nights, and leadership tasks, we’re saying “No” to our families and work-life balance. It doesn’t have to be this way.

I’m Jimmy Turner, MD.

A practicing anesthesiologist, physician entrepreneur, and coach for doctors.

As a physician, husband, father, and entrepreneur, I know what it’s like to feel like there is never time to take a deep breath and end up on the road to burnout.

I felt undervalued, unappreciated, and trapped. I was stuck in medicine.

But rather than step back and find balance in my personal and professional life, I carried on, sure that my ‘next’ accomplishment would get me off the road to burnout and make me happy.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Through coaching, I regained power and control over my thoughts. Then, I created the financial freedom I needed to find fulfillment and balance in my life. I even rediscovered a love for medicine. Now I help other doctors do the same.

The Alpha Coaching Experience will help you achieve real fulfillment

Fulfilment isn’t a pipe dream. It’s a state of being that we help physicians (just like you) achieve every day.

A Fulfilled Physician lives life on their terms and wakes up every day living the dream and enjoying the journey.

They practice medicine as much or as little as they want. Their journey is powered by financial freedom through non-clinical income and a healthy savings rate. When they do practice medicine, they do it with contentment in their heart and control over their thoughts. They live a life of abundance and growth where Imposter Syndrome and Burnout have been defeated.
