You have the power within you to create a life of health, wealth and happiness. The Key to Life Long Success is learning to release the potential you already have within you.
-Dr. Mike Cockrell
Hi, I'm Dr. Mike Cockrell
AKA "The Frustrated Physician"
Welcome to "The Frustrated Physician" Website and Blog
I have been a practicing Family Physician for more than 20 years and over that time the healthcare climate has made some radical changes. Not all of them are beneficial, yet many practitioners just follow along without any real regards to how their advice is influencing those people they care for every day.
I am a firm believer when it comes to medication and medical interventions that More is Not Always Better.
In fact, it is often times detrimental to your long term health. I believe that we should learn to focus more on maintaining better health and using prevention strategies whenever we can to avoid unnecessary medications and procedures.
I also am a big believer that our state of mind has more to do with our health than most can even imagine and that Great Health depends on a fine balance between our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states more than anything else.
My vision is to be able to share with you ideas, insights and strategies that you can use in your everyday life to be able to increase your health, wealth and happiness.
I look forward to the journey and I hope that you will come along with me as your Best Medicine is to be willing to take charge of yourself and educate yourself to become the best version of you that is possible.
Finally, for those that want to know. I graduated from the University of TN College of Medicine in 2000 with a medical degree (MD). I completed my Family Practice Residency Training at the UT/Baptist Memorial Hospital - Tipton program in 2002 and I started Cockrell Family Medical Center in Senatobia MS in 2002 where I continue to practice Family Medicine today.
I received an excellent education through these programs, yet most of my knowledge has been gathered over the past 20 years of taking care of patients and continuing to educate myself on the issues that affect them each and every day.
I look forward to sharing those insights with you through the pages of this website and blog.
