“I would like to write a strong letter of recommendation for the coaching I have received from Dr. Patrick Hudson…As a surgeon who is clinically busy and also involved in medical group/hospital leadership, I realized that having a coach is very important for developing “the soft skills” one needs to be successful in these roles. I have never had any training in these skills and finding a coach like Patrick was fabulous. Dr. Hudson has been a great resource to me and his wealth of knowledge is second to none. Our sessions have been spot on and he has provided me crucial information and readings that have shaped my leadership skills. He has become a great part of my career growth and comfort with my planning…As a surgical specialist, Dr. Hudson’s availability, communication and professionalism match my expectations of a coach. He is a great communicator and fabulous listener who has a great knowledge about the medical challenges…leaders face…I highly recommend Dr. Hudson as a coach for physicians without any hesitation. He is truly gifted in his knowledge and skills and will be a great resource to any physician leader or clinical doctor looking to expand their skills.” Vascular Surgeon/California

“Patrick is an excellent and highly skilled coach. His career as a surgeon has led him to have a deeply nuanced understanding of the physician minds and work environment. He is uniquely suited to working with physicians and achieving results. He has provided me a framework that I can use to make decisions about my career and return to often as I have insight into what I find energizing at work and what drains me… I return to teachings and conversations we have had often in my work with other physicians…I recommend Patrick without reservation and with the highest endorsement.” Family Medicine/California
