    Covid - 19 Doctor Chronicles with Dr. Rebecca: When Your Doctor is With Child During a Pandemic

    Dr. Berens and I go back a bit in our DPC journeys. She is also a fellow Woman-in-Medicine so, I have a very soft spot for her.

    She talks candidly about life in these United States as a Direct Primary Care Physician, offering affordable care in a time of great uncertainty.

    Her practice is called VIDA Family Medicine located in Houston, TX, so check them out.

    On social media, where she is very active, you can find her on Instagram as well as Facebook, please like and follow and share all about them.



    Toodles!

    Covid-19 Dr. Chronicles, Dr. Ball's Page: When Doctors Have Human Experiences

    Covid-19 Dr. Chronicles, Dr. Ball's Page: When Doctors Have Human Experiences

    This week's first guest, in the person of Dr. Ball is another Black girl who rocks!

    In honor of the international day of the girl child that was on 10/11/2020, I am featuring two Black girls who rock, and she is one of them!

    She talks candidly as one of the 19 physicians I interviewed for my Covid-19 Doctor Chronicles about a serious family health crisis in her own mother during the lockdown and the stress of dealing with that. 

    Describing herself as an extroverted-introvert, she shares about the need for "adapting", "pivoting", and "camelionizing", as ways to beat this new normal of a pandemic.

    Focusing on family and togetherness and the need to be each other's keepers, she endorses the role of technology in all of it, and is happy to state that physicians more than any other time, need to be each others' keepers and have multiple streams of income.

    Quotables

    "We complain so much about being indoors, but, there are homeless people out there who are simply too happy to just be alive"

    Covid-19 Dr. Chronicles: Dr. Delicia's Page: A (DPC) Doctor That Cares About Her Employees

    Covid-19 Dr. Chronicles: Dr. Delicia's Page: A (DPC) Doctor That Cares About Her Employees

    Our second girl-child (all grown up) that rocks for this week is Dr. Delicia Haynes, another Direct Primary Care Physician based in Florida. She discusses the changes and transitional processes her practice put in place to help her patients and the people of Florida.

    No stranger to mental health challenges, Dr. Haynes shares about her own struggles with depression, and how she overcame it with a combination of self-care and making a drastic decision to quit traditional medicine for direct primary care because while she had always loved what she did, she stopped loving the way she did it.

    Dr. Delicia is a pioneer and an authority in the DPC space and she can be found at www.whitecoatsafespace.com and familyfirsthealthcenter.com.

    Quotables

    "We must fill our own cups and serve from a place of overflow"

    Y'all, don't forget to find and follow her and join in the good work she is doing to save lives in Florida...

    Dr. Ann Contrucci's Page: When 2 Pediatrician-Twin-Sisters Collide, the Energy is Electric!!

    Dr. Ann Contrucci's Page: When 2 Pediatrician-Twin-Sisters Collide, the Energy is Electric!!

    Dear Listener, 

    If I ever had a twin sister, her name would be Dr. Ann Contrucci, and she would be Italian!

    This week's first interview took place in May 2020, right in the heat of the lockdown, soon after I had a  virtual parenting program.

    She is as funny as she is compassionate, she is a pediatrician after all!

    Non-stop action from the jump!

    Yes, even if we are talking about mental health challenges, trauma, ADHD, and of course SUICIDE!



    I love her definition of TRUST and JOY, and the way we both complete each other's sentences in this interview!



    Al stop at that...

    Just let me know your thoughts...



    All I have to say is "She good!"



    Dr. L

    Dr. Ifeanyi's Page: 8 Pillars of Mental Wellness and This Really Smart Nigerian (Igbo-esque) American

    Dr. Ifeanyi's Page: 8 Pillars of Mental Wellness and This Really Smart Nigerian (Igbo-esque) American

    Hmmm, you can never miss a Naija fella... "dem no de eva carray last"! (Look that up.)

    My second interview this week is non-other than a fellow Naija guy, a psychiatrist, a smart, well "edumacated" (6 university degrees later...CHAI!) kinda guy!

    Dr. Ifeanyi was so awesome to interview!

    A cool-headed-self-described introvert, but who gets that his young kids will need him to extrovert-up as needed in order to help them survive the much-needed adaptations, and might I add mutations it is going to take to get through COVID.

    Y'all he was spitting knowledge!

    I learned a lot and I want you to do the same too!

    Ever heard of the 8 Pillars of Mental Wellness?

    Welp, I hadn't until this interview!

    Listen and learn.



    Also, interesting are his views on teachers and police brutality. Find out what he says about himself as a Black man in America where said police brutality is concerned.



    Quotables:

    About physician suicides: "What is missing in their support system?"

    We, as physicians, must tell each other "I got your back"

    "Hospitals must put processes in place to allow doctors decompress"

    Dr. Lulu's Page: Unpacking Physician Suicides

    Dr. Lulu's Page: Unpacking Physician Suicides

    Hello, dears,

    This episode was recorded in September of 2019 as a Facebook live episode, so, it might come out in a different mode than the others. 

    It is a solocast.

    I am discussing physician suicides in details, in honor of September as suicide awareness month, and in honor of other things that are going on leading to more and more physician suicides daily.

    We just lost another physician, a pediatrician over Labor Day weekend and I can't think of a better way to honor him, than this way.

    No, I did not know him, but, I do know that his life mattered.

    If you haven't heard yet, we held our first-ever Dr. Lulu's StopSuicideNow! Summit for 2020.

    All I can say is thank you to those that attended.

    The recordings are available for sale for $49.99 only, just send me an email @askdoctorlulu@gmail.com



    Now, as usual, please do something today to save someone's life, generally, that means focusing positive thoughts on yourself, and helpfulness towards others.



    Al see you next week!

    Ciao!



    Dr. L
