Questions from the Waiting Room explores the world of Dr. Nick Pejic - a busy New Orleans Psychiatrist, and co-host David Miller - a bright eyed millennial. David asks sensitive questions that patients might feel ashamed to ask, while Dr. Nick answers in a sincere, spontaneous, and unscripted manner – much like he does in his Uptown consultation room.
To start each episode, the listener gets a sneak peek into the life of Dr. Nick as he answers personal questions to prove that psychiatrists are human, too. The conversations flow from a light banter to a serious discussion, while they explore the broad terrain of human emotion and experience. Dr. Nick refers to these conversations as “the psychiatry of everyday life.”
The inaugural episode of Questions from the Waiting Room opens with Dr. Nick admitting a less than stellar moment with his wife, while David reminisces about his first and only girlfriend.
Have you ever woken up feeling irritated or sad and an hour later suddenly feel upbeat and ready to take on the day? You’re not alone. Dr. Nick addresses the reasons we experience these mood swings and advises us on some solutions.
Do you ever feel pleasure when a friend or coworker experiences a failure? This might not be that uncommon of a feeling! Dr. Pejic discusses why this could be the case.
