Doctor's Eyes Only provides resources for Doctors and their spouses about Money, Marriage, and Life. Through this website you can subscribe to the podcast, search for resources on a particular topic, or connect with us about anything specific to the medical world.
Our goal is to help you thrive in more than just medicine. The issues with money common to a physician’s life can be daunting or just plain odd to handle. And we know you want to handle that well. We want you to be more than just successful; we want you to be significant. Money often becomes a really big obstacle when it comes to you mattering where it matters most. We’d like to make money less of an obstacle and help money get back to its rightful spot as servant.
Money also has a language. There are 401ks, 403(b)s, 457(b)s, FLPs, 529s, Donor Advised Funds, Roth IRAs and back door Roth IRAs. (And that doesn’t even get into Estate Planning or Assets Protections jargon). Oftentimes listening to an expert in financial affairs is like listening to a foreign language. We promise to address the money issues in simple English. We will the technical jargon behind. We often say, we’ll be simple but not simplistic.
But it’s more than money. In our experience in counseling and advising over 500 specialty physician families money issues are more than just math problems. Money problems stem from marriage and life problems. Sometimes money issues are simply money problems. More often than not, they come from the spilling over of the life through marriage, parenting, scheduling, and time issues. We find money cuts across all areas of life. Where appropriate, we’ll address topics that relate to physicians on life, parenting or marriage issues. These however have arisen from conversations on money.
We’d love this to be a dialogue. We don’t want to simply interview our favorite guests and authors, or simply spew our ideas. We would be honored to hear from you! Please reach out to us on our “contact” tab and we’ll try our best to get back to you promptly.
