73: How Music Can Be a Doctor’s Superpower with Dr. Darrell Looney

by Coach Gabriella Dennery MD, Physician Side Gig, Podcast, Work Life Balance

“Hitting the right note at the right time is the same thing as putting somebody’s whatever back together and it just goes *kisses hand* [perfect]. Yes, yes. Those are the moments that we live for.” Darrell Looney MD

In today’s episode, Coach Gabriella Dennery MD talks with Dr. Darrell Looney. Dr. Looney is an emergency physician and also a musician, composer and recording artist. He and Gabriella discuss the links between music and medicine and how his love and understanding of music allows him to better listen to his patients and hear more than what they may be saying out loud. They also discuss how Dr. Looney has been able to incorporate making music into his busy life. Tune in and get a snippet of one of his newest songs, Jam Rock- a Fi Mi Love and get motivated to pursue your own interests outside of medicine!

At DocWorking, our specialty is Coaching Physicians. We bring an exceptional experienced team to Coach Physicians to achieve the Best in Life and Medicine. 

Doctors devote their lives to caring for others. But does that mean they must sacrifice their own health and wellbeing? Absolutely not!

At DocWorking, we have developed a unique way to embrace it all.

The caring for others that you do so selflessly AND the caring for YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY that you crave in order to bring it all into the perfect balance specific to YOU.

What if we told you that you CAN have it all? The career you dreamed of when you decided to become a doctor AND the life outside of medicine that you desire?

DocWorking empowers physicians to get back on the path to achieving their dreams.

At DocWorking, we understand the tug between life and medicine–a desire to make an impact through your specialized skills but a longing for more time to prioritize your own dreams and ambitions.

We understand because we are a team of physicians and experienced coaches who have been successfully coaching physicians for more than 10 years.

Professional coaching is transformational. Elite athletes, award-winning actors and top-performing executives all know this, which is why they embrace coaching to achieve such extraordinary success.  Smart leaders leverage the power of coaching to achieve outcomes that are meaningful, measurable, and attainable. Physicians definitively benefit from coaching, and we are here to provide the best of the best.
