The Alpha Coaching Experience
The 3 Pillar System
to Physician Freedom
Stop sacrificing yourself, and learn how to practice medicine because you want to and not because you have to...
Create your own freedom
through mastery of
your mindset, money, and life.
The Alpha Coaching Experience focuses on…
The #1 mistake doctors make is changing their situation before doing the tough thought-work to determine the real problem.
Like gas for the car of work-life balance, money is what allows us to live the life we want to live. Save for tomorrow while you build cash flow for today.
Finding that elusive work-life balance requires intentional planning, intentional thought work, and mastery of your “why” in life.
Because when you master your mindset, money, and balance… you can really start living life on your terms.

What our clients are saying...
Dr. Peter Baum, DO
"Signing up for life-coaching via The Physician Philosopher’s Alpha Coaching Experience was the best decision I’ve made in quite some time and I’m thankful I did it. Life coaching with Jimmy was a game changer for me, and empowered me to regain my autonomy and sense of self."
Andrew Franklin MD
"I’ve found ACE to be invaluable. Prior to starting the program, I was suffering from burnout. My sole focus was on finding a way out of medicine. A friend asked me why I’d want to walk away after spending so much of my life training to be a doctor. My answer made me sad - I’d just had enough, felt hopeless, and didn’t see change coming. This has changed after starting ACE. Through coaching, I’ve learned how to do the hard work of changing my thoughts leading to different results. I have a better understanding of my motivations and better control of my emotions. I’m no longer a helpless passenger, but the captain of my ship. It was a big investment of resources - money, time, energy. But moving on from burnout and increasing the joy and satisfaction in my life was worth it."
By the end of the Alpha Coaching Experience, you will be able to:
- Create a life that actually makes you happy.
- Create a path to financial independence through The Hybrid FI Model.
- Put an end to burnout, imposter syndrome.
- Know how to get started on that non-clinical business you've always wanted to start.
- Create the work-life balance you've always wanted.
- Find "your people" who surround you with a community of support.
Drew Cronyn, MD
"When I started I thought the price was high...It was well worth it. I would probably say he could charge 3 to 4 times the amount and it would be worth it. This will undoubtedly buy extra years in my career."
But it costs too much!!!
Too many doctors feel stressed out, overwhelmed, or burned out trying to balance being a spouse, parent, and physician.
Yet, they think that they don't have the money to invest in coaching.
- What if the opposite was true?
- What if you and your family couldn't afford NOT to invest in being the best spouse, parent, and physician you can be?
You invested a six-figure sum of money to become a physician. That was an investment in your profession.
Coaching for physicians by physician coaches is an investment in you.
If you don't take care of yourself first, how can you properly take care of anyone else in your life?
It is like oxygen on a plane. If the plane starts going down, you are instructed to put your oxygen on first.
Why? So that you can help other people next.
We are no good to our families or our patients if we are worn out, anxious, fatigued, or overwhelmed.
Transformation is possible. It is time to learn how to be the best version of yourself and enjoy the journey along the way!
The Alpha Coaching Money-Back Guarantee:
We believe in coaching so much that we GUARANTEE you will agree that it is worth the investment...
... and we want this to be as easy as possible for you to get the coaching you need!
So, within 14 days, if you don't see the benefit of coaching, too - you can get your money back.
No questions asked.
If You Want to find the Personal and Financial Practice Medicine Because you want to (not because you have to)...
You have two choices:
1) Stay Exactly Where You Are, and...
- Stay trapped in medicine.
- Think you are a bad spouse, parent, or physician.
- Blame your job and other people in your life for how you feel.
- Make excuses about not having enough time or money to make a change.
- Constantly feel overwhelmed and stressed.
- Experience the constant stress from busy clinics, OR schedules, or shifts.
2) Take a Leap of Faith with Coaching, and ...
- Be the best spouse, parent, or physician you can be.
- Fall back in love with medicine.
- Reduce the stress and burnout you experience every day.
- Learn how to stop feeling overwhelmed through intentional planning.
- Take back the autonomy of your feelings and how you show up in this world.
- Improve your work satisfaction.

Sourendra Raut, MD, CM
" The Alpha Coaching experience is an excellent combination of one-on-one and group sessions that allows you to generate insights into many of the common issues that we as physicians struggle with on a regular basis.
Through the guidance of Jimmy and his coaching colleagues, I have been able to modify my behaviors to effectuate positive changes in my life. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course for any healthcare providers who want to start approaching their careers and lives in a more sustainable manner and need some guidance and support to get this accomplished."

I cannot speak highly enough about this coaching program. It's something I recommend to friends and co-workers regularly - no matter what career stage you are in, this will be well worth your time!"

Milene Argo, MD
I help you create fulfillment and happiness in all areas of your life. As a physician, I understand your struggles because I’ve been there too. I beat burnout! I was lost after my many years in medicine. I found myself and I love her! :) Life coaching helped me shed the disillusionment and become enthusiastic about life’s beauty again.
As your coach, I will help you discover your motivators so that you can decide what actions you want to take to achieve your goals. Remember – you’re just one thought away from achieving the balance that puts you in the driver’s seat of your life.
Pete Baum, DO
I am a husband, father, outdoor enthusiast, life coach, and Family Medicine Physician in the greater San Diego, CA area.

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
Adam is a pediatric anesthesiologist, life coach, and investor. He has special interests in pediatric pain and resident education. He has worked in both academic and private practices.
When not at work, Adam spends his time with his wife, two sons (2.5 and 4 months), and two dogs. Adam is a budding real estate investor and entrepreneur.
He enjoys helping other physicians find better work life balance through defeating burnout, spending their time more effectively, and living the life that they want today.
Junaid Niazi, MD MPH
I am a board-certified internist and pediatrician, life coach, and budding entrepreneur. More importantly, I am married to a pediatrician and have a sweet 5 month old girl (a bonafide pandemic baby!) and very spirited 2.5 year old son.
I became a coach because coaching changed my life and put me back in control when I struggled with overwhelm. After seeing the impact coaching had on me, I knew I had to share it with my colleagues who have sacrificed so much to serve others. It became my mission to help physicians rediscover joy in their work, reclaim medicine, and live the lives they were meant to live.
Daniel Presutti, MD
Originally from Connecticut, Dan is currently an academic anesthesiologist in North Carolina. Interestingly, his path into medicine was not the result of 20+ straight years of academics.
Dan earned his Bachelor of Science from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Post college graduation, Dan 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 he made the decision to change career paths and pursue medicine.
Dan’s wife, Jenna, is a CRNA and there’s never a dull moment with 3 kids, a Saint Bernard, and a Bernese Mountain Dog! Dan brings a variety of life experiences, including a divorce, that have helped shape his views on life. He coaches physicians in areas of interpersonal relationships, life balance, and building self-worth and goal orientation.
Krystal Sodaitis, MD, MPH
Welcome! I am a board-certified pediatrician, fellowship trained in academic general pediatrics. I transitioned from academic medicine to working for a health insurance company 7 years ago and I am currently a Senior Director.
I am a coach, 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 she 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 that are NOT good at. This fact often causes a lot of stress, pain and anxiety. This is even more likely if they have a diagnosis that affects their ability to focus or learn. If this sounds like you, I’m your coach.
Lil Surprenant, MD
Internal Medicine Hospitalist
My name is Lil Surprenant 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 bring your stuff to, no matter what it is or how you feel about it now. I've got you.
Who is the creator of the Alpha Coaching Experience?
Jimmy's background as a husband, father, physician, and side-hustle extraordinaire led him through a dark and lonely road through burnout (and Grave's disease). His drug of choice to help him get through it all was an arrival fallacy - the idea that the "next" accomplishment would make him happy.
Through coaching, Jimmy was able to regain power and autonomy over his life. He now loves the journey (and the life he and his family live), and now helps other doctors do the same.
Jimmy is originally from Florida, but now lives in North Carolina where he practices academic anesthesiology. His wife Kristen is an educator, and they have three children. Jimmy is also the founder of The Physician Philosopher blog/podcast.
When not practicing anesthesia, Jimmy enjoys golf (don't confuse this for being "good" at golf!), working on The Physician Philosopher, hanging out with Kristen, and playing Chess and video games with his kids.
Jimmy Turner, MD
