Dr. Jeff O'Driscoll

Emergency room physician Dr. Jeff O’Driscoll often saw people leave their bodies at the time of death and communicated with them. 

He’ll share their messages of love and hope.

Jeff O’Driscoll comes to his practice as an intuitive mentor from an unusual perspective. For twenty-five years, as an emergency physician in a major trauma center, he frequently communicated with souls who hovered between this life and the next. He saw people leave their bodies at the time of death and communicated with them. Their messages were always of love and hope. For two decades, Dr. O’Driscoll refused to speak about his experiences.


Dr. O’Driscoll’s otherworldly communications began in childhood, shortly after the farm accident that took the life of his older brother. “When I was sixteen, he saved me from what might have been a lethal car crash,” Dr. O’Driscoll said of his brother. “Stan still comes to me. He still teaches me.”


After publishing his award-winning memoir, Not Yet, and sharing his story internationally, Dr. O’Driscoll now meets clients for individual spiritual mentoring. He connects people to their highest self so they can get their own answers—answers they can trust—in order to live their most authentic life. While many life coaches press their clients to be busier, more determined and more focused on the future, the tools and exercises Dr. O’Driscoll shares enable souls to walk away from fear, find their answers from within, step into their fullest potential, honor the present, and embrace peace.


Dr. O’Driscoll received his M.D. from the University of Utah School of Medicine. He is board certified in internal medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He practiced emergency medicine at a level-one trauma center, teaching students and residents, for twenty-five years, and served as chairman of the department for eight years, receiving awards and publishing articles about service quality in the emergency department.


In addition to his memoir, Dr. O’Driscoll has published a novel, several articles on various subjects, and a series of six children’s books. He paints, sculpts, and enjoys bicycling, including a one-day, 206-mile, bicycle race traversing portions of three states. Jeff married Sheila more than thirty-three years ago. They have five children and five grandchildren.

IANDS Groups offer education and discussion of near-death and related experiences to the general public in a supportive, accessible setting. 


IANDS Groups allow freedom of interpretation of NDEs and similar experiences and do not promote any dogma or proselytize any single point of view.


IANDS Affiliated Groups serve near-death experiencers by providing understanding and information. They provide support to NDErs, not therapy.
