About Dr. Stephanie Pearson

Dr. Stephanie Pearson is the CEO of PearsonRavitz, a company that helps healthcare providers understand and receive the best possible disability and life insurance. Dr. Pearson started this company after a personal experience battling disability; Dr. Pearson was a practicing OB/GYN in a community hospital when during a delivery she sustained a severe shoulder injury. Over time her condition developed into adhesive capsulitis, or frozen shoulder. This injury led to Dr. Pearson having to cease delivering babies and performing surgeries. Soon after she realized the workman’s compensation and hospital-provided physician disability insurance did not automatically go into effect to give her the stability she assumed they would.
Eventually, Dr. Pearson had to go to court to fight for, and eventually receive, the benefits that were rightly hers. As she went through this struggle, she found herself answering more and more questions from colleagues who assumed they were protected by their hospital- or practice-provided disability insurance policies. Other physicians were beginning to see that they, too, could become injured or ill, and they wanted to make sure what happened to Dr. Pearson wouldn’t happen to them.
That’s when a friend of Dr. Pearson’s in the insurance business stepped up and suggested she turn this newfound expertise into a career. Dr. Pearson realized that being a physician put her in a unique position: She knew medicine. She knew hospitals and medical practices. Now, she knew about disability insurance for physicians and nurses, and could speak as a doctor to other doctors to help them secure their careers.
Her experiences, knowledge and background could serve to connect her peers with solid, reliable and affordable disability coverage, so they would never have to endure what she did.
Dr. Pearson is still an OB/GYN, but she is also a hands-on advocate for physicians. Her mission is to empower and educate my friends in healthcare about disability insurance.
