In the realm of healthcare, doctors have long been admired for their expertise, compassion, and commitment to healing. However, at L'Atelier Forte, we're embarking on a transformative mission that goes beyond traditional perceptions of doctors. Our goal is to change the way the world sees these dedicated professionals, highlighting their roles as entrepreneurs, storytellers, exceptional family members, and valued contributors to our communities.

For example, consider the contributions of Oliver Sacks, M.D., FRCP, a physician, best-selling author, and professor of neurology at the NYU School of Medicine. The New York Times has called him "the poet laureate of medicine."

"As an author, he is best known for his collections of neurological case histories, including The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain and An Anthropologist on Mars. Awakenings, his book about a group of patients who had survived the great encephalitis lethargica epidemic of the early twentieth century, inspired the 1990 Academy Award-nominated feature film starring Robert De Niro and Robin Williams.

Dr. Sacks was a frequent contributor to the New Yorker and the New York Review of Books." Read more about Dr. Sacks HERE.

We challenge the conventional image of doctors confined to the clinic or hospital setting and want to show the world a more complete picture that showcases the diverse talents and pursuits that doctors engage in beyond their medical practice.

While they undoubtedly sacrifice to dedicate their lives to their profession, we also believe in celebrating doctors as exceptional family members who skillfully balance their professional and personal lives. While playing a vital role within the communities they serve to enhance the well-being of society.

Our mission is clear – to transform perspectives on doctors and celebrate them as exceptional and unique individuals. We envision a world where doctors are recognized for their entrepreneurial spirit, their roles as committed family members, and their contributions to the broader community. Join us on this transformative journey as we reshape perceptions and honor the extraordinary individuals behind the white coat.
