The AMA quotes that the biggest cost to litigation to the defendant is the emotional injury.
I 100% agree. I have been there.
The Anger, The Fear, The Worry, The doubt, The shame. I have felt it all.
We spend countless hours giving to others at the sacrifice of...
- Field Trips
- First steps
- Sporting events
- And the list goes on……
- Get sued
- Gut punch
- Shaken to the core
- Have no one to turn to
Can you relate? The funny thing is, when patients feel this way we advise them to get emotional help, don’t we? Yet, we ignore this for ourselves.
And here’s the thing-- we think the lawsuit is the reason for our emotions but it’s not.
It’s what we are choosing to think about it that makes us suffer.
That’s how it was for me. I wanted to blame my accusers, the legal system, the lawyers. Things that were out of my control. When I learned it’s really not the circumstances that happen to us that make us feel bad - it’s our thoughts, our stories we keep telling ourselves I found a way to slowly take back my power.
This is in our control and we can change that. What’s the first step? Getting the right help. And I’m not just talking about the right legal help. I’m talking about getting the support that will get you to the other side...without losing yourself in the process. To find your purpose and joy again. To find that self confident physician I know still lives deep inside of you again.

I am getting sued and Dr. Fortner has helped me go from shame, self-doubt, fear of reputation and unknown to learning how to move forward. She has given me the tools on how to be present with my family and not feel so out of control. One problem in particular is the intrusive thoughts that come out of nowhere and then I find myself spiraling down. I have been able to significantly impact my mood and be present with the tools she teaches. After working with her for 3 months, I am moving forward and living my life with more peace and joy.

I was suffering from medical litigation stress for over 2 years. I had lost all the pleasure in medicine and was seriously considering abandoning it to start construction training. When I caught myself reading about physician suicide rates in the US and its often-unspoken association with malpractice claims I confided with a colleague. She referred me to Laura Fortner. I had previously only superficially heard about coaching, and my preconception was pathetic. It does work! And fast! You learn how to recognize and accept the emotions and also by seeing the suit through facts.
It has given me all my strength and passion for medicine back! It is inspirational! I don’t need to be stuck in the suit anymore! I am still hopeful for the best outcome in the case, but I don’t need to wait for it to be over to live and be happy. Independent of what happens, what defines me is way beyond that “thing”. I wish every colleague that is going through that could talk to her! I highly recommend it!

The coaching session this morning really made a positive difference in me! It is sooo good and inspirational! Great to feel validated, but also how to reflect objectively!
Thanks so much once again! You saved the day!
