The dirty little secret about private practice is that most doctors spend the bulk of their careers fairly alone in their offices. And when they go searching for help to build their dream practice and a more fulfilling career, they're confronted with a lot of conflicting choices.
The Burleson Box podcast allows you to quickly obtain some of the most powerful, evidence-based advice on the planet, straight from the authors and experts who have published their life's work in best-selling books.

I have always learned a lot from listening to Dr. Burleson, thank you.
I love reading business books and always wish I could ask the authors questions for clarification, etc. These interviews are awesome as Dr. Burleson asks great questions to delve into what the authors were thinking when they wrote their books. I love that they are succinct and to the point and that he lets THEM talk most of the time. Great podcast. Highly recommend.
Great info for anyone!
Since finding this I listen to an episode daily on the way to work to get into the right mindset. My employees have found it helpful and they are even implementing what they are learning. Definitely check it out!
