ARE YOU THE UNHEARD DOCTOR?
Does this sound like you?
You avoid media interviews because the questions are overwhleming, you don't want to say the wrong thing, or you've been burned by reporters before.
You offer a special service or therapy, but your ideal patients don't know about it, and they've never heard of you, your practice, or your department.
You've done a few media interviews, podcasts, or community presentations, but would like to do more and polish your delivery.
You're frustrated by the lack of solid, evidence-based communication on medical topics, and you wish more doctors would share their expertise and experience with the public.
"EVERYONE AT THE OFFICE HIGH-FIVED ME, THE CHAIRMAN SENT ME A 'WELL-DONE' EMAIL, AND MY LANDSCAPER TIPPED HIS HAT TO ME AND TOLD ME HOW MOVED HE WAS BY MY TV INTERVIEW."

SPEAK WITH CONFIDENCE AND CLARITY
or remain unprepared, unheard, unpolished, and undervalued
Feel confident about presenting important medical information with skill and poise.
Attract the patients you can help.
Look your best.
Sound your best.
Position yourself as the expert with colleagues and the public.
OR YOU COULD...
Shy away from opportunities to promote yourself, your practice, and your specialty.
Leave the public dangerously uninformed about important health and medical information.
Face interviews and presentations unprepared, without a message, and get burned.
Use the wrong words, leaving the audience confused.
From a client after watching my free online media training: "Maria, I really enjoyed the video & especially liked the recommendations for flagging the key points. Can't wait for the course. Please let me know the next steps."
MORE GREAT FEELINGS!
“Success usually involves preparation
and thinking about the words I will use,
especially since TV spots are so brief.”
“A lot of my patients enjoy
seeing me on TV.
They’ll say during their visit
that they finally understand something
because of the way
I explained it on the news.”
