Hi! I’m Dr. Errin Weisman, and I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m Family Medicine trained, dabbled in rural Emergency Medicine, Correctional Medicine, Telemed and currently practicing as medical attending for a geri-psych hospital. I’m a farmer’s wife, a mom of three wonderful kids, and now a life coach entrepreneur working with doctors experiencing burnout. I have a special interest in helping you with transitions, developing the life and career you love and finding your joy.
I created Truth Prescriptions because in 2014, I was super deep in burnout as a doctor myself.
I didn't understand why this was happening to me. I’m fierce, determined, driven, and ambitious. I’m a leader. I was chief resident, the go-to person in my residency class. I gave 110% to medicine even when it meant sacrificing other areas of my life.
People think that burnout means you weren’t working hard enough, but I’m here to tell you that the opposite is true.
I couldn’t see a way out and I was leaving medicine. I had nothing left to give - not to my patients, not to my family, and certainly not to myself. My soul felt broken.
I was desperate for help. I talked to colleagues, my med school besties, my CMO for God’s sake! Finally, I found a wonderful physician coach and wrote about our work together HERE. Essentially, during burnout I felt that I was alone in a cave, had dropped my flashlight and couldn’t find the way back out. Working with my coach, I felt like she turned on her flashlight, and I looked up to find that I was in a cave full of jewels (think the movie Snow White where the dwarfs are mining). Endless possibilities and beauty around that I was completely missing. Through coaching, she helped me learn a new way to think as we walked back out into the sun together.
What does this mean? It means that I go to the clinic or hospital now in a good mood, wanting to do this work. I work my shift, I engage with my patients, and I feel that my work is meaningful. And when I come home, I can shift gears and be present with my family. In short, I rediscovered what it feels like to be happy. I uncovered my joy.
I became a coach because what I couldn’t find during my burnout was a coach who was a doctor and a mom still practicing medicine who was willing to talk about the suck and how she came through it.
I would love to help you on your journey. You are not alone. And if you choose, you can stay in medicine and build a sustainable life. But know…Anything is possible! (I’m living proof of it)

We asked Dr. Errin, “What would you tell your past self??”
A: “Girl, this is going to be the hardest thing you have ever done. Harder than natural childbirth and med school. Harder than 54 hour call and your own burnout.
When you decided to step out, to run in your own lane, it means you can no longer compare to justify your success. You can no longer out hustle someone else to inflate your sense of achievement. You can no longer base your value off the perceived value of others.
Stay in the middle of your purpose, boo. Daily, remember why you chose this. Reach out for help early and often. Struggle but don't give up! Love you!!”
