Episode 126: Why is my pediatrician so burnt out? Is concierge medicine the future?

Let’s call a spade a spade here. Your Pediatrician is burnt out. Low insurance reimbursement, low salaries compared to other medical specialties, long hours, and the stress and worry of the job have led a lot of Pediatricians to cut their hours or leave the workforce. I speak with Dr. Elliston, a former colleague of mine and founder of @ellistonpediatrics. He left traditional pediatric medicine to start a large and thriving Concierge Medicine practice in NYC.

We discuss:

  • Why doctors are burnt out and why the system is failing us and patients
  • What are the benefits of concierge medicine
  • How does it work with insurance and for emergencies

Find out more about Dr. Andrew Elliston at ellistonpediatrics.com or via Instagram @ellistonpediatrics
