Financial Residency is a podcast devoted to helping you become more confident in your finances. Part of this process is working with people who enjoy helping physicians as much as we do!
From time to time, we vet the businesses and experts we love working with. And because you are at the heart of our show, we thought it was fair to provide you with a recommended list of resources we’d go to bat for. Feel free to look through the list. If you found a good fit, we want to know about it.
Thank you for allowing Financial Residency to be with you on your financial journey. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our latest episodes and become more confident in your finances!
Ever wonder what it would take to design the life you want on your own terms? What’s missing is a bit of perseverance, elbow grease, and *cough, cough*… a financial plan. But Ryan, it takes thousands of dollars to hire a financial planner to pull together the numbers, charts, and that dreaded b-word! Well, it does for some, but you can do it for under $25 bucks. My wife, Taylor, a pediatric pulmonologist, will show you how at the cost of a book. Grab a copy on Amazon and watch your ideal life come to life before your own eyes.
Want to be super cool? Be sure to leave a verified purchase review to help other physicians live the life of their dreams too.
Physician Wealth Services (PWS) is a fee-only financial planning firm devoted to the financial well-being of physicians. Ryan Inman, founder of PWS, developed a sense of responsibility to help physicians with their financial goals after witnessing how vulnerable his wife was to poor financial advice during residency. He was shocked at how many advisors tried to take advantage of her and her peers.
Ryan started PWS as a fee-only practice so he could work exclusively with physicians who could truly benefit from unbiased, quality financial advice. Working with Ryan is simple and transparent. There are no assets under management (AUM) fees, no products being sold or commissions being paid out. Everything is included for a flat monthly fee, the way it should be.
Ryan helps physicians create lives they love using the resources they have. To help them feel in control of their money, in the same way you make a patient feel better about their health. You may also recognize Ryan as the Creator and Host of the Financial Residency Podcast, a free resource to help increase financial literacy (and also the reason why you’re here!)

Lawrence B. Keller, CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®, RHU®, LUTCF has been in the insurance and financial services industry since 1990. Unlike medicine, which has a standardized path that physicians must take to gain the education, training and experience requirements necessary to obtain board certification, the insurance and financial services industry does not.
Working with an agent that is familiar with the underwriting of both disability and life insurance policies for physicians can all but guarantee a smooth underwriting process in which the desired outcome is likely.
While he might not be a doctor’s first phone call regarding their insurance needs, he is often their last.
