    Gideon Strich, M.D., F.A.C.R.

    Physician Coach, Master Practitioner NLP

    Dr. Strich worked for 25 years as a hospital based diagnostic and interventional radiologist in a level 2 trauma center, a position associated with a lot of time and performance stress, before suffering career ending burnout at the age of 59.


    Prior to that time, he had served as chairman of the hospital physician well-being committee, dealing with physicians with substance abuse issues and, more frequently, behavioural issues that impeded their ability to effectively practice in the hospital environment.
