The Alpha Coaching Experience
The 3 Pillars to Physician Freedom:
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 ideal life… you can really start living life on your terms.

"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!!!
...but it isn't about the price, is it? It is about the value.
If I offered you a Ferrari or a Porsche for $10,000... you'd find the $10,000. Why?
Because you recognize the value of the investment (even if you aren't a car person)!
Coaching is the same.
It is about the value of the investment. So... how much is it worth to you to have the freedom you need to practice medicine on your terms?
What if you and your family couldn't afford NOT to invest in finding the freedom you need to live life on your terms?
Joining ACE and Learning The 3 Pillars to Physician Freedom is an investment in you.
After all, 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 of starting the program, 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.
- Feel empowered by setting the course to financial freedom.
- 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.
What does the evidence say about physician coaching?

"It's incredible to see the difference this course has made not only in my professional life, but my personal life at home."
Dr. Andrew Hart
"I know in the future as I learn more and get coached more it's only going to keep getting better and better."
Have you considered creating a source of non-clinical income, but don't know how to get started?
Money & Business coaching in the Alpha Coaching Experience includes:
How to get started earning non-clinical income
Creating a healthy money mindset
How to stop feeling stuck
Coaching on a variety of income streams (podcasts, blogs, courses, coaching, writing books, med mal work, real estate, and more)
Can't I just get one-on-one coaching? And wouldn't it cost less?
First, you'll need to interview a lot of coaches to find a good fit. Then, you'll need to hope that they are good at what they do. (And that you won't need any other kind of coaching they don't provide).
Or... you can let the Alpha Coaching Experience do the heavy lifting for you by finding the right coaches to fit your needs!
- What happens if your one-on-one coach isn't a good fit?
- What happens if you want to get coached one week on your career and the next week on your marriage? (And the following week on business?)
My friend, with one-on-one coaching you are stuck! With just one option.
Inside the Alpha Coaching Experience, we hand-select coaches for each enrollment based on the needs of our Alpha clients!
You want coaches to help with burnout? We have them.
You want to get great marriage coaching? It's there.
Oh, you want money coaching to help you earn more money? Yep. We offer that too!
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."
Dr. Adam S.

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!"

Meet Our Amazing Alpha Coach Team
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.
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.
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.
Tricia James, MD
I am an Academic Internal Medicine physician still practicing inpatient/outpatient medicine and teaching. Coaching helped me go from feeling trapped in my job to thriving! I also have 3 young kids, so I am very familiar with the journey of balancing work and life.
Physicians are some of the most intelligent and resilient humans and I love helping them reconnect with their power. I can’t wait to help you take control of your life, dream about what could be, and then make it happen.
Pete Baum, DO
I am a husband, father, outdoor enthusiast, life coach, and Family Medicine Physician in the greater San Diego, CA area.
Like many doctors, I burned out early on and wasn’t happy. Life coaching helped me to regain control of my life, one thought at a time. Yes, it’s that simple…
I can help you to work through and overcome burnout, self-doubt, and imposter “syndrome.” I will help you discover insights into your relationships and empower you to change so you can start showing up as you want to be. 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.
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
I would highly encourage anyone considering this course to take a leap of faith and enroll now. The value that you will receive will far exceed the time and money that you will spend on this course. Participating in the Alpha life coach course may be one of the best decisions I have ever made.
