About Dr. Pinesett

I went from the bottom of the premed pack to the top of Stanford Medical School. Now I empower students and premeds to exceed expectations and achieve their goals!

Empowering students to be

more independent, more confident, less stressed and maximize their potential by providing web-based and in-person training in four primary areas:

Effective Time Management (e.g., overcoming procrastination, task analysis)

Study Skills & Advanced Study Strategies

Professional Development (e.g., networking, applications, personal statement, interviewing)

Mental Fitness (e.g., motivation, goal setting, stress management)

Although I am now one of the top learning experts in the world, I was once a hopeless student.


As a first-generation college student, I stressed and struggled my way through a mediocre freshman year and was told by my counselor that for a variety of “reasons” I would never become a doctor and probably wouldn’t even graduate. Fueled by her negativity, I set out to prove her wrong and show that all her “reasons” were just excuses. And despite having a ton of excuses not to succeed, I set my mind to dominating… and "No Excuses, Just Dominate" became my war cry.


Eventually I developed a revolutionary new approach to studying, time management and building a stellar premed resume that changed everything:

I DOMINATED college while studying only 10 hours per week!

I DOMINATED my extracurriculars by following my passion and always over-delivering!

I DOMINATED the MCAT studying independently, scoring in the 95th percentile!

I DOMINATED the med school application process becoming part of the 1.7% of applicants accepted to Stanford!

I DOMINATED Stanford Medical School, graduating in the top 5% of my class while never studying on weekends! 

Now, I'm using TheStudyDoc.com to uncomplicate the process for those coming behind me: Revealing exactly how they can transform into a completely confident, efficient, independent and dominant person!

For almost 20 years, I have been helping students transform their lives.

Before establishing my own company, I worked for numerous well-established programs including serving as

Director of the University of California Irvine’s (UCI) California Alliance for Minority Participation Summer Science Academy

Representative at Stanford School of Medicine’s Committee on Curriculum and Academic Policy

MCAT Instructor and Curriculum Contributor at Stanford University’s Center of Excellence in Diversity in Medical Education

Strategic Consultant to The Princeton Review’s Admissions Counseling Department


Due to my background and experience, I have an unparalleled insight into what it takes to improve productivity and results inside and outside the classroom. I'm dedicated to helping students and premeds, particularly the underrepresented and disadvantaged, take control of their careers and achieve lifelong success. My systems are innovative, effective and most importantly, easy-to-follow. The end result is happy, healthy, high-achieving students and premeds.
