Dr. Junaid Niazi is a board-certified internist and pediatrician who works as a primary care physician for a large healthcare organization in the upper Midwest by day and by night he’s known as Prosperous Life MD. He is a physician life coach and he blogs and coaches physicians on all things wellness, productivity, finances, and careers. He also has a group coaching program to help physicians complete their charting at work and that’s why he’s on the show today. His interest in charting also landed him as an Information Services Medical Director, where he optimizes the EHR for physician use and patient care.
He is going to help you conquer your charts and go home on time! How? By standing over you and forcing you to finish the chart before moving on to the next patient! How? By convincing you that whatever you can do with that extra time is going to be more rewarding than whatever it is you’re doing to waste your time instead of charting. Are my kids more fun than scrolling on Twitter? Usually. What’s your reward? Finish your charts!!! We also talk about Parkinson’s Law, why it isn’t some forgotten formula from physics class or your neurology rotation, and how realizing its truth will help you get stuff done.
He’s also anti-To-Do list? Why are to-do lists the devil and make you feel like garbage and ultimately less productive?
Dr. Niazi completed his undergraduate studies at Rice University, medical school at Baylor College of Medicine, and residency at the University of Minnesota. He is married to a pediatrician and has two rambunctious toddlers.
