Telemedicine, Working with your Spouse, Free Agent MDs & more with Alex and Cherisa Sandrow [Limitless MD, Episode 156]


Imagine practicing medicine on your own terms, from anywhere in the world, while maintaining a fulfilling work-life balance. It’s not just a dream; it’s the power of telemedicine. 

In this episode, we introduce you to two remarkable physicians, Cherisa and Alex Sandrow, who have harnessed the true potential of virtual medicine. 

Their journey began not as a pursuit of wealth but as a quest for freedom and flexibility. With young children in tow, they sought a change from the traditional medical grind.

Starting in 2015, when telemedicine was less prevalent than today, Cherisa and Alex have come a long way. They share their insights on practicing medicine remotely, highlighting the incredible benefits and potential pitfalls.

These are some of the topics we cover in our conversation: 

  • How to get out of the proven pathway confidently
  • 3 things you should know if you work with your spouse
  • Pros and cons of virtual medicine
  • How to create a successful physician coaching program

Discover how you, too, can transition from merely surviving in medicine to thriving. Learn how to maintain or even increase your income while working half the time, all on your own terms.


“When you can get back a little bit of time into your life, that all of a sudden starts to open up the creative centers of your mind. And in the process of doing that, the things that you once would have said are impossible now become: ‘When I do that’ or “How can I do that?’. And it changes your mindset radically.” – Alex Sandrow
