S3, Episode- 5- Alan Pitt- Part 1- His Family Business of Medicine (Healthcare Pittstop Podcast)

January 27, 2017

My name is Dave Denniston, your host. Welcome back to the latest episode of The Freedom Formula for Physicians Podcast. I split this conversation into two parts- this is part one.

Welcome back to our monthly fireside chat with a physician to get to know their journey, their joys, and their struggles with finances and outside of finances.

Our next guest is a physician and a fellow podcaster and a blogger. He said that, “I’ve lived my life in healthcare. I grew up in a medical household, and later got an M.D. Now, in mid-life, I am saddened and dismayed. America is the wealthiest country in the world, yet we often bankrupt our citizens when they become ill. We cure what seems incurable, but then abandon the many others. Care is often replaced by technology.”

He is now on a mission from his content to bring together the places, the people, and the systems that define this care and to have heart-to-heart conversations that can make changes in the system.

He is a Professor of Neuroradiology at the Barrow Neurological institute, a Chief Medical Officer at Avizia, a husband, and a father.

Please help me welcome Dr. Alan Pitt.

Welcome back to our monthly fireside chat with a physician to get to know their journey, their joys, and their struggles with finances and outside of finances.

Our next guest has not only been a physician, but also has created a side-hustle focused on concierge real estate for physicians called Curbside Real Estate.

A little bio on him… he is practicing, full-time, anesthesiologist. He lives in beautiful Sunny Southern California, my birth home. Go Lakers!
