What clients are saying about
Gazelle’s physician, leadership, and . executive coaching
“I had the pleasure of attending a mindfulness and resilience retreat led by Gail and Paula Gardiner this past January. We were a group of 25 physicians feeling burnt out and looking for ways to master the stresses of our daily lives. Gail and Paula helped identify the factors contributing to burn-out and then gave us tools to help manage and overcome those feelings.
I left the retreat refreshed and more confident in my ability to minimize the stressors in my life with the goal of becoming more competent, compassionate, and satisfied in my work and home life.”Obstetrician
“Before coaching with Gail, I was miserable. I hated going to work. I felt like my patients were a burden and the front desk staff and the medical assistants were out to get me. I found Gail on the Internet and I jumped in with both feet. It has been worth every penny and then some.
I have the same job with the same inexperienced supervisor, the same staff, and the same patients but I have changed. My outlook and attitude have changed. I have developed tools to help me with the difficult administrator and staff. I enjoy the patients again. I enjoy the discovery of medicine again. I do not feel that everyone is against me. I am more present with my daughters and my husband.
It was the best money I have ever spent.”Family physician
“Gail has the wisdom, character and years of experience in healthcare systems that allows her to create safe space for physicians to reflect. I attended a physician meditation and wellness retreat she offered in Boston and left feeling energized, connected and renewed. Her simultaneously gentle and strong nature was exactly what was needed to allow me to ask myself critical questions and create a sustainable self-care routine for the future. Highly recommend.”Family physician/medical ethicist
“Forced to receive counseling by my hospital’s medical board after a single careless utterance, Dr. Gazelle was recommended. She was direct and effective in the most compassionate possible way. She was creative, insightful, and resourceful in guiding me on a journey of self-reflection, mindfulness, and behavior modification with the overarching goal of helping me be the best I can possibly
I highly recommend Gail to my colleagues who are feeling the moral pressure of being torn from the patient’s bedside and thrust into unfulfilling work.” Pulmonologist
“I had been unhappy for a few years at my current job at a large academic medical center– uncertain promotion process, burnout, lack of focus, frustration, and indecision about how to manage. Gail’s coaching helped me guided me to gain clarity about my strengths, motivations, and purpose. The process helped me be more aligned with exactly what it is that I want as opposed to what others want for me. Whether I stay or leave my position, I’m much more at peace and can see more clearly the right steps in my path forward.”Pathologist
“Gail helped me recognize and articulate my strengths and values, improve my professionalism as a physician, and develop the servant-leadership skills needed to support my career growth. As a result of our work, I’m much happier in my job, have stronger skills for working with non-physician administrators, and have landed the leadership role I’ve long wanted.”Sports Medicine
