About Us

Putting Better Practices to Work

Practicing medicine is stressful. At Physician Wellness Services, our goal is to help physicians manage day-to-day stress and work and life issues — and assist healthcare organizations in managing behavioral, psychological and other performance-related issues before they become major problems.

The Medical Board of California estimated that 18% of physicians in the state abuse alcohol or drugs at some point during their career.

Nobody Else Does What We Do

We are the only company that provides a coordinated, comprehensive and confidential suite of services designed specifically for physicians and the organizations that employ them. The result is a total, end-to end solution that lets you access all the services you need — with a single call. We are:

  • Experienced: Our providers have worked extensively with and are familiar with the needs of physicians and the organizations where they practice.
  • National: With providers in every major city, travel is minimized and physicians can continue working while getting the help they need. We can also accommodate physicians who prefer to work with a provider in a location other than their own.
  • Multi-Faceted: We offer wide-ranging expertise in every aspect of behavioral health and where physicians often have needs, such as anger management, substance abuse, personality disorders — as well as family and relationship issues.
