Smarter Finances = Enjoy Your Life Again!

“I empower doctors by helping you make smart decisions about your money

so you can start enjoying your life again.”  

-Setu Mazumdar, MD, CFP®, RICP®

GCEPGeorgia College of Emergency Physicians

Dear Fellow Physician and Friend,

Welcome to Physician Wealth Solutions!

I'm Setu Mazumdar, MD, CFP®, RICP® and I’m a financial planner and investment advisor for physicians, and owner of Physician Wealth Solutions, a registered investment advisor.  I'm also a physician myself. Through comprehensive financial planning and investment management, I help physicians make smarter decisions about your money.

Face it:

Practicing Medicine Is Already Tough!


Not Having a Financial Plan Can Make It Even Tougher.


Because I’m also a physician, I’ve experienced firsthand the financial, career, and lifestyle challenges and frustrations you face.

I retired from practicing medicine before age 40 so in my opinion I know what it takes to start solving the financial and investment challenges and frustrations you face -- and I’m excited to help you do that as well.

I have a FREE gift for you: Your FREE Financial Coaching Consultation.

In this session we’ll review your finances and investments, point out mistakes you might be making, and create an action plan to start fixing those mistakes. We’ll also figure out whether we want to work together and have me be your financial coach.

Learn more about the consultation and how you can sign up by clicking here: FREE Financial Consultation.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You’re repeatedly blamed for the rising cost of health care and events you have no control over

  • You’re held to a standard of perfection almost no other occupation is held to

  • You feel like you're accused of being a “rich doctor” who makes “too much money” and who isn’t paying your “fair share” in taxes

  • You’re the scapegoat for bad patient outcomes 

  • Someone else is controlling what you get paid 

  • You’re threatened repeatedly with paycuts and potential lawsuits

  • You’re drowning in regulations and paperwork and clicking endlessly on computers all day long -- and you’re sick of it

I know how you feel -- I've been there.

And I also know that if you get your personal finances and investments in order, you may be able to practice medicine on your terms (or walk away), and perhaps reduce some of that stress and anxiety from your life.

Get an action plan in place with your finances and investments!

Start by signing up for your FREE Financial Coaching Consultation.

Answer These 10 Questions

  1. Do you feel like you've lost your autonomy in medicine and have control over almost nothing?

  2. Are you frustrated with the endless paperwork, government and insurance company bureaucracy, and the hassles of electronic medical records?

  3. Do the threats of paycuts and lawsuits make you sweat?

  4. Are you getting burned out from practicing medicine and wish you could cut down on your workload if you had the financial means to do so?

  5. Are you tired of being blamed for rising health care costs and being accused of not paying your "fair share" in taxes and making too much money?

  6. Do you lack a clear direction or a systematic process for managing your investments and finances?

  7. Are you bummed because you've made big financial and investing mistakes by managing your investment portfolio by yourself?

  8. Are you getting poor investment advice from your current financial advisor who might not be acting in your best interest, might be selling you expensive investment products, not relating to you as a physician, not giving you objective investment advice, or has an investment philosophy that is more like gambling?

  9. Do you want to get your financial life in order and want a clear, simplified, and organized financial life?

  10. Do you want to work with a financial planner who is also a physician, who charges you fees directly, does not sell any financial or investment products, is a fiduciary, acts in your best interest, gives you objective advice, and has an investment philosophy that is based on academic science not guesswork and speculation?

If you answered Yes to any of those questions, then you've come to the right place because I've helped physicians like you with their personal, financial, and investment challenges.

It starts with getting your FREE Financial Consultation with me so we can learn about your concerns and frustrations, discuss your goals, and start coming up with an action plan to make smarter money decisions. 

In My Opinion Doctors Want These 5 Outcomes:

  1. Build up enough wealth so you can work on your terms 

  2. Freedom to enjoy other aspects in life besides practicing medicine 24/7 

  3. A simplified and organized financial life 

  4. A plan of action and systematic process for making financial decisions 

  5. Reaching a point in life where you find that work may be optional not mandatory

How do you start working toward all of this? It begins with having a financial coach who will hold you accountable for your financial decisions.

Don’t be like many physicians who are stuck in the mud with their finances, make no progress, get stressed out over money, and wonder why they’re still working full time in their 60s. It’s time to take control of your finances and investments and get them in order.

Check out this website, my story and the services I offer and then sign up for your FREE Financial Consultation.

I’ll talk to you soon!

  2. Point out big financial and investment mistakes you or your financial advisor may be making -- this alone is worth setting up the session with me
  3. Determine whether your financial advisor is a fiduciary and acting in your best interests -- Is he giving you objective advice or selling you expensive or potentially inappropriate financial products? We’ll find out.

MY STORY

Is your financial advisor also a physician just like you?

I DOUBT IT.

Meet Setu Mazumdar, MD, CFP®, RICP®

Financial Planner, Investment Advisor, and Physician

CLICK HERE: SCHEDULE FREE FINANCIAL COACHING SESSION


Who Am I?

I’m Setu Mazumdar, MD, CFP®, RICP® and I’m a financial planner, investment advisor and physician. Through comprehensive financial planning and investment management, I empower physicians like you to get your financial life in order and help you make smarter decisions about your money.

I’m also a physician like you, but I retired from practicing medicine before age 40!

Almost all of my clients are physicians from various medical specialties coast to coast.

My experience as a physician gives me the unique ability to understand your situation because I've probably faced the same financial, career, and life challenges you face.

In my opinion your financial advisor cannot truly understand you as a physician unless your advisor is also a physician - that’s the deep connection I bring to you.

In my opinion your financial advisor cannot truly understand what doctors go through such as: 

  • Enduring more than a decade of grueling training, education and exams
  • Strying up all night every 3 or 4 nights and then work the next day dead tired 
  • Having someone else’s life literally in your hands 
  • Being held to a standard of perfection that no other occupation is held to 
  • Getting blamed for events that you have no control over 
  • Facing continuous scrutiny from the government and third parties who have their hands in your pockets and think you make too much money 
  • Worrying about the threat of being sued every day 
  • Sacrificing  so many of your weekends, holidays and family time

I don't think your financial advisor can truly grasp all of that unless your advisor is also a physician like you.

And that’s why I’m different. I am one of you. I’ve probably experienced the same challenges you’ve faced. Can your financial advisor say that? I doubt it.

But I can.

You see, financial planning and investment management is a deeply personal and ongoing relationship. It goes way beyond just making trades and crunching some numbers. Because I'm also a physician, I can connect and relate to you in a deeper way.

Why Should You Believe Me?

I know you're raising your eyebrows at this point. You're probably saying to yourself...

"I mean seriously...a doctor who transformed into a financial planner to help other doctors?"

"Did you lose your medical license? Did you just snap one day and go nuts? Are you competent to manage other physicians’ finances and investments? Is this a joke or a scam, Are you wasting my time?"

Here's a brief background on my education and experience to erase your skepticism:

  • Graduated as valedictorian of my high school class from Woodward Academy in Atlanta, GA — a large independent private school
  • Graduated from Johns Hopkins University for college -- one of the top colleges in the US
  • Received my MD degree from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine  -- one of the top medical schools in the world
  • Board certified in emergency medicine and worked full time as an emergency medicine physician
  • Am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional -- the gold standard designation in the financial planning profession and covers such areas as investment planning, tax planning, insurance planning, estate planning, and more
  • Am a Retirement Income Certified Professional® -- a professional designation which allows me to help you with retirement income planning strategies
  • Am an Accredited Investment Fiduciary® -- a professional designation from the Center For Fiduciary Studies® which signifies specialized knowledge of fiduciary responsibility
  • Founder and sole owner of Physician Wealth Solutions -- a fee only financial planning and investment management firm where I empower doctors to take control of their finances
  • Published numerous personal finance articles in various physician magazines, including Emergency Physicians Monthly and Physicians Money Digest

I’ll admit I’m not the smartest guy in the world, but as you can see I’m no slouch either. And no I didn't lose my medical license. And no this isn't a scam. In fact I take this very seriously. And you should too if you care about getting your finances and investments in order and working toward living your life on your terms.

My Story

I’ve got an embarrassing confession to make: I made a ton of financial mistakes early in my career -- perhaps the same ones you might be making now. I had no clue what I was doing with my investments and I didn’t know anything about retirement planning, disability insurance, estate planning, or college planning. I didn’t have a single hour in medical school or residency devoted to financial planning, yet it became a big part of my life and affected everything else is my life that was important to me.

Despite those mistakes I still retired from medicine before age 40!

No, it’s not a typo and no I didn’t win the lottery. Here’s how I did it:

My wife and I are both physicians -- we met in medical school at Johns Hopkins -- but unlike most doctors, we made our finances and investments a priority early in our careers.

That mindset about the value of money originated from our humble upbringings. When my parents moved to this country, my dad trained all over again as a physician so we had very little money and few material possessions. My mom worked at 7-Eleven and other odd jobs just to support us. Our “dining room table” was a cardboard box! My wife’s parents toiled 12 hours a day 7 days a week working at Chinese fast food places.

Those experiences shaped the way we valued money. We saw money as a tool to achieve financial freedom and independence at an early age so we could do what we want, how we want, and when we want. When my wife and I graduated from medical school and residency, we committed to taking control of our finances right from the get go.

While we enjoyed certain aspects of practicing medicine, like many physicians we eventually got sick and tired of all the BS we have to put up with: lawsuits, paperwork and electronic medical records, annual tests, hospital administrators, nightshifts, the ridiculous volume of patients we have to see, and on and on and on.

But achieving a degree of financial independence at an early age wasn’t easy.

You see, we made a ton of financial mistakes that cost us dearly. We had no clue what we were doing with our investments, and I didn’t know anything about financial planning.

We also saw so many of our physician colleagues giving up their weekends, nights and holidays because they didn’t have their financial lives in order -- in my opinion many of them looked miserable. We decided we didn’t want to be like that. We wanted to take control of our situation.

The increasing complexity of our personal financial lives was what first ignited my passion for financial planning and investment management.

But something else really added fuel to the fire...

My Passion and Desire To Help Physicians

I’m quite disappointed with poor advice many financial advisors give to doctors. Many sell expensive (and in my opinion) inappropriate investment products. When I hired a financial advisor early in my career, I felt like he was just a salesman peddling products not giving me the objective financial and investment advice I needed. His answer to most of my financial challenges was to keep selling me expensive whole life insurance policies. Unlike a physician, he was not a fiduciary and wasn’t acting in my best interests.

In my opinion it’s sort of like you getting paid by the pharmaceutical companies for the drugs you prescribe instead of the service you provide to a patient. You wouldn’t do that to patients, but many financial advisors get paid based on the products they sell you not the advice they give.

To me that didn't make sense.

I realized many physicians either didn’t know what they were doing if they managed their finances by themselves, or they hired financial advisors who weren’t fiduciaries and who weren't acting in their best interests.

I feel physicians deserve objective fee only investment and financial advice from their financial advisors -- in my opinion from someone who is also a physician, who has made similar mistakes that you may have made, and who is willing to go to bat for them just like we put our best effort forward for patients.

So I decided to become a financial planner for doctors.

This is a passion of mine. I know firsthand the hard work and dedication it takes to be a doctor -- because I am one -- and I can personally relate to the challenges you face. My goal is to help fellow physicians like you make smarter decisions with your money and get closer to your own financial goals.

I really encourage you to sign up for your FREE Financial Consultation with me. I think you'll find the consultation to be valuable to you. It's a relaxed conversation where we'll talk about your frustrations, concerns, challenges, and goals and come up with an action plan to start carving your path to financial success. Just follow the prompts on this page to sign up.

So that’s a little bit about me. I’d enjoy hearing your story and connecting with you during your FREE Financial Coaching Session

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!

My Core Values To You*

In my opinion a financial planner should adhere to some core philosophical principles to help clients such as:

Organization

Bring order to your financial life on “macro” level (investments, insurance, retirement, education...) and “micro” level (cash flow: income, spending, savings, taxes)

Accountability

Help you follow through on financial commitments, work with you to prioritize goals, show steps you need to take, 

and regularly review progress towards achieving your goals

Objectivity

Help you avoid emotionally driven financial decisions, consult with you at key moments of decision-making, managing and disclosing any potential conflicts of interest

Proactivity

Anticipate life transitions, be prepared for them and create an action plan to address them

Education

Explore knowledge needed for your financial plan to succeed by understanding your situation, providing resources to help make your decisions, and explain options and risks of each choice 

Partnership

Work collaboratively with you not just for you with transparency and be your financial coach

*Core Values philosophy is based on Mitch Anthony's ROI to ROL framework (www.mitchanthony.com)
