One breakthrough (I had) is that you made me realize I can still do clinical medicine and adjust it to my needs. I realized I won’t have much chance going part-time at my current job unless I continue to take full call which I don’t want to do. I am going to look for part-time no call jobs and hospitalists jobs in this area. Thanks for opening my eyes. I really thought the change had to be so dramatic but there is a lot of choice out there!

  • Heather, I can’t tell you how lucky I am to have met and worked with you. I came to you at the time of confusion and desperation and you were a beacon of light. Through talking with you, I learned to listen to myself, and that is no small thing. Sometimes it is scary, but it is the best way of moving forward. I am also so grateful to you for introducing me to Dr. G. I learned a lot about the pharmaceutical industry from talking with him, and he introduced me to the Regional Director MSL who recommended me for my current job as a writer at a medical communications agency. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had not stumbled upon your website. I’m so grateful we met! I cannot thank you enough for your warm, uplifting guidance. With gratitude,

  • “My work with you is life changing. I am very grateful to have crossed paths with you and am a different person because of it. I have learned much from you and through you. You have been very professional but you have also shown the compassion usually shared between friends. You have inspired me “to believe” in spite of my inner skeptic. I have a lot of respect for you and consider you one of the great mentors I have been privileged to have. You are doing a great job and the value of your services is tremendous!”

  • I knew I needed a change. I had been thinking about it for years. I was burnt out, less effective than I had ever been, and my life was totally out of balance. But to what and how? Fortunately, as I was surfing the net one night after a long , irritating day at work, I came across the Doctor’s Crossing website. I came back to it several times before I finally emailed Heather. That simple action turned out to be a life-altering moment. Heather helped me look at my career and my personal life from a holistic perspective, as pieces of a grand puzzle that needed to fit together in a coordinated harmony.  She taught me ways in which I could preserve my identity as a healer and activist while also  being kind to myself. She helped me envision my future path and then supported me as I changed directions. When I needed a new skill to navigate through the challenges, she taught  me. When I had to make a difficult decision, she provided me with  the information and contacts I needed. When I was scared and doubtful, she was my cheerleader. I love my new career! I am happy at work and at home. I’m certainly living a healthier lifestyle than I ever have. I am working less hours with less stress and making twice the money. I couldn’t have done it without her! When I need to make  significant career decisions in the future, you can bet that I will use her services  again and again and again!

  • The improvements in my life, which are the direct result of Dr. Heather Fork’s coaching have been nothing short of amazing! Every subject we have worked on has been unbelievably successful. She really helped me set goals and stay focused and have a winning attitude. When I took a little break a few months back I had a crisis come up. I was on the phone with Heather and was soon “back in the game”. The crisis passed and I was able to make good decisions with her help. My family relationships, health, work environment and living situation have all improved since we started this process together. Thank you, Dr. Fork, for new life, new interests and new energy to enjoy it all!

  • If it weren’t for Dr. Heather Fork, I would still be the frustrated physician I became over the years …of what I viewed to be diminishing fulfillment in the practice of medicine… and a cup half empty. I was introduced to Heather through a fellow physician, and so began my journey back to feeling inspired about my career and purpose in life. Heather’s calm, compassionate presence was a welcome invitation. I felt authentically heard for the 1st time in years. Starving for any improvement in my life at work, Heather fed me on a wave of discovery through thoughtful questions and mind-opening personality testing. This allowed me to re-connect with my inner self. The result was that my past and present began to integrate into an exciting future where my talents and experiences are combined, allowing me to offer help for people in ways that have since energized my existence into a cup near-full. I was so impressed with what Heather had to offer that I decided to embark on the very same training she went through to become a co-active coach. Her passionate support gave me the courage to move forward, and I remain forever grateful for her contribution to my feeling fulfilled on a daily basis! Thanks Heather!!
