About Me

Darrin Eakins is an expert in making seamless transitions. His previous work as an orthopedic physician had to be abandoned due to disability and illness, so he developed new hobbies and career possibilities in stock trading and investing. Thanks to the extra time he had for pastimes, he discovered a love for pickleball and rediscovered a family interest in art.

Eakins draws on his experience as an orthopedic surgeon to inform a large portion of his present job, which includes biomedical stock analysis. The investment potential for pharmaceutical and other biotech companies is examined by this specialized group of analysts. With a surgeon's perspective, Eakins may study items under development by various companies from a variety of angles and decide when it is a good moment to buy. This includes having expertise in patient care as well as hospital and clinic operations.

He has a broader interest in the stock market than only medical equities, and he now trades futures extensively. A keen understanding of the market and the capacity to spot lucrative chances are necessary for successful futures trading. Futures can be bought by traders as a hedge against market swings or as a form of speculation. A necessary skill is being able to bet on the future price of a stock index or a commodity instead of owning a specific stock when the futures contract runs out.

In Willmington, North Carolina, Eakins formerly held a full-time position as an orthopedist with a focus on sports medicine. A specialist in orthopedic surgery treats conditions that affect the bones, joints, and muscles. In addition, they take care of cancers, birth defects, degenerative illnesses, and sports injuries. Eakins specializes in common pickleball injuries and other sports medicine ailments.

Dr. Eakins attended Baylor University for his undergraduate studies in science before attending Wake Forest School of Medicine for his medical training. His graduation was in 1992. He then finished a 6-year surgical internship and an orthopedic surgery residency at Oregon Health Sciences University. He also spent a second year as a fellow at the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, Australia.

Eakins made time to better people's lives despite having a demanding schedule as a physician. He gave a house to Habitat for Humanity in 2001 because of this.

Eakins was among the best students in his medical school class and one of the top scorers at Wake School of Medicine.

Darrin Eakins enjoys a wide range of activities, including acrylic painting, pickleball, fishing, futures trading, investing in the stock market, researching biotech stocks, and sports injuries. As one of his other hobbies, he is currently investing in the stock market and getting better at analyzing how the market works.

Father Eakins was a passionate artist. Many of Eakins' interests were put on hold while he worked as a full-time surgeon to operate and care for patients. He got interested in art again after he retired. He had been interested in art since he was a young boy learning from his father.

Similar to tennis, pickleball offers tremendous opportunities for physical recovery and strength building. Besides being a fun and competitive sport, regular exercise has helped people think more clearly, have more energy, and improve their motor skills.

He was injured in a serious mountain biking accident somewhere in the year 2008. He sustained damage to his shoulder and wrist. It resulted in numerous procedures and rendered him unable to practice surgery.

He, like many others, developed an addiction to oxycontin while recovering from several surgeries. This is an opiate that was frequently prescribed but has since been outlawed due to its extremely addictive qualities. In the end, this resulted in melancholy, family estrangement, and divorce. Before he spent nearly a year in rehab in Florida in 2016 at Life Skills, Boca Raton, and Half Way House in Del Ray, he struggled with addiction and depression for ten years and went in and out of many treatment centers.

He claims that he believed he could defeat the illness with intellect and willpower, as he had done with all of his other victories in life, but that in reality, he had to give in to the illness, admit he had a problem he couldn't solve on his own, and seek assistance from people who had experienced a similar problem. He will never be able to beat the condition, but if he gives up and seeks daily support from God and other alcoholics, he can live with it and prosper.

Now that he has been clean for six years, he spends time each week helping people who are also struggling with addiction. He also talks about his own experiences with community groups and tries to give back what he was given: a second chance at life.

He enjoys plenty of pickleball and fishing to keep his outdoor lifestyle active. His main social outlet is the latter. Eakins grew up in Dallas, Texas, and High Point, North Carolina. When he was ready to start his career, he moved to Wilmington, North Carolina.
