How do I get started?
We begin with a free 60-minute physician coaching consultation. During this session, we will discuss your goals and how coaching can help to overcome any obstacles on your path to success. We can then get to work with 30 minutes of one-to-one coaching. By the end of the session, you'll have an opportunity to decide whether physician coaching is right for you.
No commitments. No pressure. No hassle. 100% risk-free!
Dr. Michael Hersh is a leader in physician coaching who truly lives it to give it after discovering the extraordinary benefit that coaching has had in his own life. Michael's deep understanding of the challenges that physicians face and passion for helping clients to discover ways to feel empowered to create a life that aligns with their core values is deeply transformational. The current culture of medicine is not working with devastating impacts on physician well-being. We are the change, and Michael helps clients to take back their lives and learn how to thrive as we recreate what it means to be a physician - no longer neglecting aspects of our lives that make us whole.
I had gone through a very positive group coaching experience last year which had a very meaningful impact, however, I felt it was short-lived and needed more 1-on-1 personalized interaction. I am at a point in my life and career where I'm ready to make a change but didn't know how, when, or to what. Immediately after meeting Michael, hearing his coaching philosophy and witnessing his style, I knew he was the right fit for me. What I thought I was looking for was someone to give me the go-ahead/confidence to make the change I was considering.
What I realized that I needed was not as much the answers to what, how and when the change should occur, but why I wanted to make the change. Through a better, deeper understanding of my relationships and feelings with myself, my loved ones, my career and my finances, I now have a much better understanding of why and really who I am. Michael's expertise and attention have been transformative, to say the least, and I'd recommend his services to anyone looking to better understand the deeper why and who they are.

Michael is very easy to work with, and he provides opportunity and direction for adopting a healthy perspective. His worksheet exercise on future self allowed me to feel more in control over where I am headed and forced me to think about tangible paths for moving in a self-selected direction. I highly recommend Michael for anyone grappling with “just not feeling happy” and wanting guidance on how to reclaim satisfaction and positivity.

"Through his program, I have learned eye-opening life skills essential to have newfound balance and resilience not taught in medical school or residency..."
I don’t even know where to start on how much Michael has helped me in my physician life journey. First of all, he has compassion for a fellow physician, and it has been evident by the way he has helped me. He patiently lets you express yourself without judgment. Even this alone has been very important for my journey, since in our workplaces as physicians we are not really allowed to show vulnerability.
He is astute in unearthing and addressing the much deeper underlying issues, not just what they may seem to me initially. He pokes holes in my “BS” arguments against myself but with empathy, always keeps on challenging and cheering me on. As a physician, he knows firsthand about our struggles. He has been there and has come out the other side. Through his program, I have learned eye-opening life skills essential to have newfound balance and resilience not taught in medical school or residency— heck, these things are so life-changing but I had never heard of them before.
He personally helps navigate the confusion and overwhelm in this physician’s life to help find the best solutions for my practice and life. He walks together with me through the program. He keeps encouraging me to keep on improving my life inside and outside of work— medical practice, daily life, self-improvement, relationships, other ambitions— all of them!
If you are on the fence whether this program is a great investment for your life, let me tell you — you have my resounding YES! Do it! Do it as soon as possible! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
