Dr. David Rhoiney: Talking Openly About Grief and Healthcare

Dr. David Rhoiney

Dr. David Rhoiney is a General Surgeon in the US Navy.

He talks about his childhood, navigating the healthcare system, the loss of his mom, applying to medical school, and his passion for finance.

What I appreciated most about the conversation is how open David is about grief and the challenges of navigating the healthcare system.

One of my favorite quotes from the discussion is:

We put these labels on mental health and this stigma on mental health. People don’t like to talk about it, and I do my best to openly talk about these things because we need to remove that. We all face times when we are depressed. We all face times when we have anxiety. We all face times of uncertainty. And we all go through these, and it’s okay for us to go through them.
