Thanks to Ronald Pies, MD, psychiatrist, author of eight books, and occasional writing collaborator with me on Medscape.com, for appearing on "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner." This interview was an excellent opportunity to learn more about Ron and how he balances his writing and medical careers.
Please join us for this 20-minute interview where Dr. Pies explains how writing has complemented his career as a practicing psychiatrist. He shares examples of other physician writers, such as the playwright Anton Checkov and poet William Carlos Williams. Dr. Pies discusses how fiction writing can lead to increased empathy and enhance the doctor-patient relationship.
Ron has also contributed for many years to PsychiatricTimes.com, where many of his articles (and a few of mine) can be found.
Ron is an "old school" physician-scholar and not much into social media. To find his books, check out Amazon.com. Here are three of his thought-provoking titles:
I look forward to interviewing Dr. Pies again after the publication of his next book!
