Rate Show

He cares about other doctors!

This is a very different podcast as it's not self promotional. Derrick isn't a coach or selling some course - he's out there just giving straight talk to help doctors. Well done!!

An Absolute pleasure!

I absolutely love listening to Dr. Burgess' podcast! As a fellow physician, I feel like he really understands the human side of medicine and always asks the most important questions. I appreciate how he dives into the importance of mindset in our work and how our profession impacts every aspect of our lives. Each guest he features brings a unique perspective to the table, and I always walk away with valuable insights that I can reflect on. This podcast is a must-listen for every physician!

Thanks Dr. Burgess

I watched your podcast with Keon Howard and It was amazing to see another black man not only being successful but pushing others to be their best self . On another note, you came to my health science class to educate us on our career paths and also shed light on your very own life. You said something that stuck with me and I hope to remember forever,”Fear will paralyze you”, that really spoke to me man , I appreciate your ability to stay real and push others to go for what they want ..BECAUSE WE CAN…this is the bowtie guy by the way lol!

I love this show! Many people happily share their success stories but not often do you hear of their failures self doubt and fears. Kudos to Dr Burgess for his transparency and willingness to ask the hard questions. Real people real stories. Awesome!


Dr. Burgess King your questions are impeccable questions thank you for not only interviewing me but also others whom have a story but not a platform to speak their thoughts. I encourage you to pursue your podcasting show because more stories are willing to be told it’s definitely therapeutic for the City.

Good interview

I just now tuning in and listening to the podcast. The interview with Keon Howard is good, and I think every young men and young women should hear what he have to say. Falling forward instead of falling back should be a good example of what college life is and what a person have to go through to achieve there goal! I don’t know him personally, but I am proud of him!
