Dr. LaCute made the jump from a hospital-owned academic practice where revenue targets were increasingly rigorous and “everything about medicine was rushed” to her own private practice specializing in family medicine. Her strategy relies upon utilization of a tech-driven business consultant who provides the tools that maximize the practice’s impact on patient care and the community – while also helping to navigate the constant changes around policy, compliance, reimbursement and regulation.

Episode 6 – April 5, 2023
Guest: Dr. Stephan Quentzel, MD, JD, MA, Medical Director
The Louis Armstrong Department of Music Therapy at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital
Much can be understood about a patient from the musical choices he/she makes, even if they are not a musician, since everyone has “musical reflexes with rhythm and melody,” according to Stephan Quentzel, MD, says doctors today are discovering more about the physiological responses connected to different frequencies of music and brain activity and the value these connections have in patient wellbeing and care across a range of disorders. He discusses this new area of medicine and what it’s meant for his career in this episode of Medicine in America.

Episode 5 – February 4, 2023
Guests: Dr. Arlen Meyers and Dr. Jeffrey Hausfeld
Over the past few decades, healthcare providers have been compelled to move from the traditional idea of medicine where “physicians take care of patients” to today’s model where increasingly “providers take care of insured lives.” This loss of connectivity between a patient and their doctor has worn away the fabric of what medicine used to be. Seeking alternative models and innovations, physician-business leaders Dr. Arlen Meyers and Dr. Jeffrey Hausfeld co-founded the Society for Physician Entrepreneurs (SOPE) to empower physicians and other professionals to innovate healthcare through entrepreneurship. This is their story.

Episode 4 – April 5, 2023
Guest: Dr. Bonni Goldstein
After beginning her career in pediatric emergency medicine, a taxing yet rewarding medical field, Dr. Bonni Goldstein finally hit the burnout challenge that many physicians today experience. After taking time off, she made an abrupt career transition about 10 years ago and immersed herself in studying the endocannabinoid system, the recently discovered system that regulates and controls many critical bodily functions. After becoming fascinated by the potential, Dr. Goldstein launched Canna-Centers Wellness & Education practice in Southern California, and now calls the field of medical cannabis “extremely rewarding work.” Her practice has helped thousands of adults and children with serious or chronic conditions improve their quality of life.
Her latest book — Cannabis is Medicine: How Medical Cannabis and CBD are Healing Everything from Anxiety to Chronic Pain — was published by Little, Brown Spark in September 2020. For more information visit: canna-centers.com

Episode 2 – October 13, 2022
Guest: Dr. Michael Frankenthaler
In healthcare today, collaboration and alignment among providers, hospitals and payers often get short-changed, even when it’s in the best interests of the patient. This is especially true in the commonly misunderstood field of palliative care, where Dr. Michael Frankenthaler is working to bring greater understanding, communication, and efficiency to the full spectrum of palliative care. Dr. Frankenthaler, a critical-care, ICU-trained physician who moved into palliative care a decade ago, says he sees this transition as being rooted in his efforts to “bring common sense back to medicine.” His ideas center upon ways to “normalize the variability and uncertainty of serious disease” for patients and their families, as he discusses here. Dr. Frakenthaler is the Chief of Palliative Medicine NYCHealth+Hospitals/Jacobi and North Central Bronx Hospitals.
Episode 1 – October 11, 2022
Guest: Dr. Jill Weintraub
Practicing medicine grows more challenging every day, yet a few bold-thinking physicians – including rheumatologist Dr. Jill Weintraub of New York –are reinventing themselves and their practice models to better meet their professional objectives and improve patient care. Dr. Weintraub, who said she felt “out of alignment with her own integrity” while working in conventional multi-specialty practice, discusses how she successfully transitioned to a solo practice combining conventional evidence-based rheumatology with the principles of integrative medicine. This path opens the way to “so many innovative treatments and approaches,” Dr. Weintraub explains.
