2 Thoughts on “Nisha Mehta, MD: Physician Wellness”

  • I thoroughly enjoyed listening to your chat on my long drive today, even if it did leave me feeling a bit like I did as a grade school boy reading Judy Blum’s “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret”.

    You’re both addressing really important topics (burnouts, finance, and the role of the side hustle in improving both) — I look forward to hearing more from both of you.


    • Lol. That’s hilarious. Glad you enjoyed it! I am also a huge Judy Bloom fan. Look how much we have in common!
