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.”
