In this episode, we talk to Holly MacKenna, an integrative psychiatrist, about her experience as a chronic patient in the health care system. Holly shares how emotional and overwhelming the process was, and how she was able to draw on her own experience to better understand and support her patients. Holly also reflects on the importance of family and cultural values in her journey towards getting a diagnosis, and the relief and sense of validation that came with finally receiving an answer. Listen in to hear Holly’s unique perspective on navigating the health care system as both a patient and a physician.
Holly MacKenna is an integrative psychiatrist.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Balancing the roles of patient and healer.”
