“Dr. Gazelle was just the right expert, and her talk was overwhelmingly positively received”

“After two years of COVID, it became abundantly clear to me that our department could use expert advice in dealing with physician and staff burnout. Dr. Gazelle was just the right expert, and her talk was overwhelmingly positively received.  She provided multiple resources we could avail ourselves of and practical strategies our surgeons can immediately employ.  I recommend Dr. Gazelle for anyone experiencing burnout and associated issues, and I recommend her even more strongly for those who feel it is not an issue.”

“I personally left her workshop feeling at peace”

“Gail delivered a fantastic workshop for anesthesiologists. The timing was perfect because we are all exhausted, burned out, and feeling isolated from the Covid19 pandemic. Gail’s workshop was rich in content with several mindfulness and reflection exercises. She led us in a guided meditation and helped us connect and share our experiences with each other. I personally left her workshop feeling at peace. I learned new tools that will help me better manage stressful situations, which happen all too frequently as we balance our lives in medicine and at home. Thank you Gail!”
