- Listen to Ron's Interview with Ken Redcross -  

The Surprising Coast-to-Coast Journey of a Doctor-Entrepreneur 


Episode description:  

Dr. Ken Redcross is an internist with over 20 years of medical practice. He also is a concierge doctor to a number of families; volunteers as a physician tending to dementia patients in assisted living facilities; appears as an on-camera medical expert for TV news programs; and serves as an advisor and consultant to several companies, including supplement manufacturers and a leading manufacturer of adaptive wear for seniors and disabled people. Welcome to the fast-evolving world of medicine and entrepreneurship. In today’s episode, Dr. Redcross recounts his storied cross-country career, starting as a provider to farm workers in California, to his current multi-platform practice in the New York metropolitan area. He acknowledges that he “wears many hats as a solo practitioner,” but what connects his various enterprises is his commitment to “emotional intelligence” or E-IQ—what it takes for doctors and patients to be “true partners in wellness.”  In his best-selling book, “Bond: The 4 Cornerstones of a Lasting and Caring Relationship with Your Doctor,” Dr. Redcross outlines the essential elements of a successful doctor-patient relationship: “trust, communication, respect, and empathy on both sides of the stethoscope.”  When these four are paired with proper nutrition, daily movement, and a strong spiritual foundation, true health and healing can take place, Dr. Redcross says, and remarkable health outcomes can be achieved—something he has witnessed countless times over the course of his career.
