Business back to basics team togetherness

Private Practice Mandates

Private practice mandates an entirely additional set of skills today. More so than any other time. Not instead of but in addition to your healers skills and instincts.

And honestly, failure to realize this, or especially educate our students creates every unpleasant and often painful experiences ranging from unrest to bankruptcy.

Interestingly, with patients we tend to be extraordinary analytical, follow algorithmic, logical sequences, and frequently just one or two steps at a time.

It’s this thought processes that lends itself to accurate diagnoses and rapid, critical action.

But private practice demands an entirely different set of skills, especially when marketing, finances, and staffing are concerned. Let alone technology, human resources, your web-facing efforts, and wealth building.

In fact, modern private practice demands an entrepreneurial mindset. The days of just being a great doc without , marketing and management and exceptional business skills is, with rare exception, over.

This is why despite everything else you may do, you have got to have an excellent business training to fall back on again and again.

This is exactly what we have been doing for those of us in private practice since 2007.

Times are never good or bad..

Times are never good or bad, only different.
Sage advice from a master, spoken many years ago.
I am not sure exactly who or I would give due credit.

And you know what? It’s very Darwinian, especially today.

Only the fit will make it. And
come out so much better. I know this as I speak
with doctors all over the USA.

This is a great time to reinvent yourself
personally, spiritually, and refine your practice
make-up, vision, goals, and especially your
systems.

So much is happening so fast right now.

Just ask your patients.
Ask them what they need. What they want from
you to achieve their own objectives.

And by asking this, you find out how good
a job you have done educating your patients.
Or not.

Times are never good or bad, only different.

And for these different times, there is Living & Practicing by Design to guide you every day.

We hope you’ll join us!

Let’s take a look at these skills…

 

Let’s take a look at these skills so essential to phenomenal success but so often overlooked.

Number one on my list is the ability to organize and sort incoming “stuff” and data.

Really.

A messy desk (or home or personal life quite frankly) makes for a clouded mind. That’s why extreme and easy organization is the first lesson in Living & Practicing by Design

Along side of this skill, you also need to be able to organize, focus and direct output and productivity. This includes everything from processing new patients to getting the income to run, gwo and market your  #privatepractice, and especially build long-term security.

Think about this one. There is not one area in practice where the rule of this skill set does not apply.

The second skill set is just as critical.

And that is developing a CEO/CFO mindset that you’ll have to use right along side the Dr. before your name.

This is perhaps the one that takes the longest to develop for docs. But like everything else, just a little regular study leads to mastery.

And if you do this right, an incredible professional and personal life and career.

Are your patients getting mixed messages?

Are your patients getting mixed messages, and you don’t even know it?

Most especially, might there be an incongruence or two with regard to office policies which might not only be slowing you down, but could be like driving your car with the brakes on?

Well, if you have more than one staff person, the answer might be yes. It’s so important to try and head this off with the policies and procedures covering every little detail.

Even in our practice, I discovered this quite by accident last week. The problem began with a newer staff person getting into encounters for the first time by herself.

It seems like everything has broken in our office in the last 3 months. Computers, phones, credit card swipe machines, and even a diagnostic unit. Stay in practice long enough and stuff just happens to fail eventually.

Anyway, last week it was the card swipe machine. This can really hurt the income for a day or two as you know.

Now my staff is very bright, and they know our policies on collections. So why did the failure of one simple device cause chaos at the front desk?

It was simply because the basic “fix” that is in the office manual was not referred too. Once I pointed this out, we were back to normal quickly.

Once again, a smooth running private practice is all about congruent policies and procedures. This is where Living and Practicing by Design membership can help you accomplish and then stay on top of this each week.

A Doctors Natural Gifts

A doctor’s natural gifts. That’s what you possess as a healer. You can put patients at ease; physically and quickly abolish their pain and discomfort. Restore hope, and actually save their lives by doing what seemingly is very natural for you.

Healers have commonalities in backgrounds and life experiences. Actually, our pathways as doctors of all disciplines is remarkably similar, often times being touched at a young age by illness or death. Doctors minds and hands posses the unique ability to alleviate mental and physical anxiety, and often time anguish.

Beatte and Beck among others have written on this, and it’s helpful to look at this is you’ve never done it.

However, private practice mandates an entirely additional set of skills. Not instead of but in addition to your healers instincts.

In today’s new world, you must blend all your clinical skills with excellent judgement and powerful business and social skills. All of these are taught by our team daily in simple, easy to use formats.

Our team is ready to help you Live & Practice by Design, not default! You can even call or text our team for personalized help 781-659-7989

Doctor, Are We Focused on the Right Things?

Doctor, are we focused on the right things? Honest to God, its 3:10 AM. I can’t sleep, but I feel so lucky. One of my patients died last week. My wife of 30 plus years is asleep next to me. How lucky am I?

Judy presented to me about 10 weeks ago with acute sciatica, and low back pain.

At first, it seemed simple enough. By the end of week one, I sensed something completely different. Nothing gave her anything but very passive relief, nighttime was unbearable. Then she developed significant weakness of the legs and gait changes. Interestingly, her neuro signs were still benign, but that changed oh so quickly within 48 hrs. Something was “bad wrong”, here as one of my earliest professors would say.

He husband who I have cared for for 25 years was with her every moment. Very concerned. Scared for Judy.

I called her PCP who immediately began a hospital intake after we both voiced concerns about unrelenting night pain and progressive leg weakness now justifying admission and a complete workup.

Judy went down-hill fast. Initially, what started as a simple sciatica was next thought by her neurologist to be Gullien-Barre’ Syndrome.

When medication (steroids, etc) did not help significantly she then quickly had plasmapheresis, and was sent to transitional care. She never improved significantly.

Very quickly, it was established she had some very aggressive non-specific demyelinating disease.

In essence, all this happened inside of 3 months.

Judy and Bob were married for 50 or so years. Over in a flash. There is nothing any of us as her team would have done any different, or better. But, it still sucks.

Of course we see this as part of practice, and way more if you spend a lot of time in hospitals. I did four years of this type of transitional care, and I still see the face of the pretty 23-year-old girl dying of a brain tumor, and many others 30+ years later.

So, yesterday morning, after my staff broke the news (we had called Bob the night before to check on Judy), instead of bitching about how so many obstacles are being hurled onto the path of us in practice, I felt really lucky. I immediately thought about my wife and daughter.

For some reason next I start thinking this morning about the doctor from an insurance carrier trying to lecture me on another patient last Monday morning on absolutely ridiculous daily record keeping, way beyond any standard of care. I told him so. I also told him I would gladly perform a high level encounter at each visit as long as it was paid for. I also explained that the company he reviews for denies such services as “not medically necessary”, so this will cost the patient an additional 150 or so out of pocket, for each flare up of the SAME condition.

Huh?

And I am thinking this is just nuts. There’s no common or rational clinical sense in this at all. This is not good chiropractic or good medicine.

And I told him, “Screw all of this. Patient care always has to be the most important thing here”.

He’ll never get it.

A year ago, it still made sense to work for these people. I’m still #lovinghealthcare

But, if this keeps up they are history in my book.

Because when its done, that’s all there is.

 

It’s all just a “test”

It’s all just a “test”

We speak often about the power of planning, and then implementation.

All fine, and essential. But happens when your plan does not work as intended?

There is a saying in marketing that there are no failures, only tests. It’s all just a “test”.

And so it is in the world we live in right now. What worked so great in practice a while back may not be working so well right now.

What do most people do? Stop trying!

What’s a better way?

Analyze, fine tune, make some appropriate changes, and “test” again.

Then again.

Seriously. Every great practice and business is built upon the backs of many, many failed “tests”…

“Now what do I do?”

Doctor, if you have asked yourself  ‘Now what do I do?’ even once in the last week, something is incorrect, broken or missing in your game plan.

Your practice is strong, your investments are worth more not less and you lead your team with eager anticipation of the future by example.

If not though, a really critical appraisal of EVERY system in your practice, and probably personal life is long overdue. You should be doing this every six months at a minimum anyways.

Here are some key issues to consider right now.

Have you made your patient care plans simple, understandable by your patients? Or, are they confused, and when it comes time to pay say all too often “Let me think about it.” “I can’t possibly afford THAT right now.” And you watch them drive off in a better car than yours.

Are you asking your patients what they want and going out of your way to provide it?

And your team. Are you reassuring, or frightened? Are you complaining about how much money you either don’t have or lost, or are you supportive, and doing everything you can to ensure them a bright future? Do they absolutely know where they stand on everything about your practice??? Or, are they spooked because you are taking calls from your broker when with patients.

Are you making them feel confident, or scared??? Do they talk about you, and in what vein? Are you working every week to make their jobs easier or more difficult and confusing?

Let’s talk money.

Are you spending money on your continued growth and education, or did you axe that too. Will you be joining us to learn from some of the brightest people in healthcare, EMR, marketing, interdisciplinary care and law right now? Are you fully engaged in continuous self-improvement? Books, CDS, podcasts, teleseminars and webinars?

And what about marketing? Still losing money on print ads, or does YOUR name come up when they Google their health concerns. Is it YOU on the local radio health shows, or your competitors? Is your website up to snuff? Are there ways on YOUR website to capture New Patients on-line? The Same Day? Are you targeting your marketing, or broadcasting dollars into the wind?

While writing “Living and Practicing by Design”, little did we know at the time how quickly much of what we wrote about would be a bullet proof strategy against the ever changing economic and practice landscape.

The good news is, that’s what we do together in our memberships.

And doctor, based upon the events of the last few weeks, you will need to create all of this stuff in your own life.

But ONLY if you LEARN THESE RIGHT NOW. Get Started HERE

 

What too many private practice marketers forget

What too many private practice marketers forget is just how changeable the landscape is! As a private practice owner it’s never enough to set up any online or social marketing campaign without paying regular (daily) attention. Otherwise, you are broadcasting thousands of wasted dollars into the wind. Now couple this without paying daily attention to other key systems, disaster is only a question of when not if

But there is a better way to live and practice by design.

You can learn so much more about private practice marketers, our story and about building your practice for a lifetime upon timeless systems HERE

He called his big idea the “Certain Way”.

About 100 years ago, Wallace Wattles warned those aspiring to make better lives for themselves to ignore politicians, naysayers and media. He called his big idea the “Certain Way”. Focusing endlessly only upon your desired outcomes with continuous gratitude being your dominant thought.

Doing everything with the utmost care and attitude of devout service.

I believe he was right. It’s a fact; politically self-serving agendas have been a part of history for centuries. Even back in Ancient Rome and Greece, elders warned about the expansion of self-perpetuating plutocracies. Right now though the constant injection into the media is fear from politicians who we entrust to be leaders.

Rather than reassurance this trash talk about the wealthy is destructive, and controlling.

Too often, the very criticisms our politicians hurl at others, mirror habits that exist in their own lives, a fact too many of their constituents and certainly the paparazzi ignore.

It’s the deeper message though, most recently not so hidden, that in my opinion is the most dangerous to private healthcare, especially for our student doctors.

That message is that being wealthy and ultra successful is somehow bad. That because you did well through your own efforts, your results must now be penalized.

Never has such a more dangerous notion been put forth with unquestioning by the mainstream media.

It’s NOT wealthy successful people that bring the economy to it’s knees.

It’s now many years of bad decisions and top down government and corporate corruption that transcends political parties and international boundaries, fueled by incredible greed. Unfortunately, these basic facts are too often conspicuously absent from the daily media banter.

It’s the wealthy and most successful (not the greedy and corrupt) that pay the bulk of taxes already. It’s the wealthy that are the philanthropists and benefactors in a free society.

For those younger than I, this attitude is nothing new.

The problem is, in our current world, this trash talk about success is today again everywhere. This only serves to perpetuate dangerous myths, especially to our young and inexperienced citizens.

In fact, the greatest minds in history have warned about the dangers of unbridled political banter.

So what can you do?

First of all, have the guts to acknowledge media BS as just that.

Don’t focus and dwell on what’s wrong with the world.

Instead, focus on improving it, one patient visit at a time.

Yes, a lot has changed in practice! It’s changed in your patient’s lives too. And some have been enormous.

So, what have you done lately to help deal with their changes and how they utilize your care, or not?

And what about their own fears and concerns? Are you like a deer in the headlights, or a pillar of community strength?

When is the last time you and your team took actions that can make their days brighter, and their futures even healthier? The possibilities for practice expansion with this one are huge!

But, most importantly, make sure your daily actions and decisions are ultimately putting you in charge of your life. Take full responsibility for your own results.

Work a little harder, maybe a whole lot smarter to develop your own future choices and flexibility.

Always remember, no matter how ineffective prior decisions may have been, or how bad things may have been this is a brand new day.

Completely new opportunities abound.

But only if you decide to be fully engaged.

Tough or not, there is no better time to make your mark than right now.

I would also assert that is this the very best time to refocus, and reorganize. Learn new systems. Invest in your business skills development. Reorganize. Rebuild if you must!

Be sure you are limiting your media exposure. Focus on your new business and personal goals. Plan now to be reaping the rewards, without guilt.

Ready to change the way you look at practice and maybe your entire life?

How Your Staff Answers The Phone

Now of course, this is something I regularly do with enjoyment. I can tell so much about a doc and their practice, based upon how your staff answers the phone.

Timing, attitude, how questions are handled, are they organized? And are all their tools obviously at their fingertips?

In fact, if your not doing great at the moment, ask three friends to anonymously call your office. Two as new patients with no health insurance. You should listen in. You may however be shocked.

When it comes to collections at the counter its “Here’s your options Mrs. Jones, would you like me to put the entire week (month) on the same card?”

Or more like “Oh that’s OK don’t worry about it…”

Here’s my point.

Those who build powerful practices, and indeed personal lives continuously aim to master each area!

No, it’s never perfect, and always require measurement and attention, but none-the-less the process is in place via policies, procedures and trainings.

Clinically, it’s also very important to your patients!

This is also why your staff must be darn good on the phone, so patients know to expect clinical excellence, which is not as common as you would think.

Now in our office, new patients still tell me almost 30 years later, “That was the best exam I have ever had in my entire life!”

Why?

Because on each new patient we still insist on a thorough pre-exam presentation by staff,  yes even interns, while finishing the first visit with the best physical examination they have ever had, hands down.

Private Practice Systems

The most important of all Private Practice Systems is…can you guess?

Answering telephones by script. It is simply a mechanism to ensure two things. One is that patients are not turned off by what is said. The other is to obtain valuable information in terms of what parts of your marketing campaign are working. You have to make sure that whoever is answering the phone is ascertaining exactly how these particular people are finding you.

The second daily marketing task is to make sure that your new and returning patients are now automatically enrolled in stay in touch “sequences”. You certainly can enhance the effectiveness of autopilot marketing by making sure that you’re subdividing these patients, putting them into different groups and categories. This is now much easier with modern software.

Third, you need to make sure that referral & primary care docs and other professionals who share the care of your patients with you are being updated by you on a regular basis. It is important to have this on autopilot. In our office when the doctor finalizes an examination report, the doctor or a staff person prints it. The staff will make sure that we have indeed personally signed the professional copy. If it’s a primary care doc who I haven’t handled before or haven’t had the opportunity to meet, I will put an introductory letter in there as well.

The fourth task to continue to drive referrals to your practice is to make sure you’re always keeping your word. If you told Mrs. Smith that on this particular visit she’s going to begin rehab or have an evaluation for carpal tunnel syndrome, you have to make sure this is indeed happening.

The fifth point is to make sure that you have surrounded yourself with a team of “can do” and not “I can’t.” The worst thing that can happen to you is to have your plan stymied by somebody who is continually coming to you with, “I can’t,” or “I didn’t get to it.” Our tolerance for this behavior is virtually nonexistent.

Do you see how important all this is? Then why doesn’t every practice operate this way? Don’t let this be you. Our team can help.

Decisions we make every day

My wife and daughter recently brought me home a copy of “I Me Mine“, which is as close to an autobiography of George Harrison as you can get. It’s a great read. I have always respected his strong faith, as well as his music.
Some passages really shed light on how he applied ancient philosophies to modern life. In reality, its all about decisions we make every day.

At the start of our “Perfect Practice Platform” training, I spoke at length about the “Gita”, and the pertinence of its philosophy 5000 years after it was written in Sanskrit. George was immersed in the Gita, and its related teachings.

This passage from George will help to remind us all of the daily application of something so basic to our professional lives, but too often forgotten.

“The problems start when you get attached to the problems! That’s when the mind gets involved in too much thinking of whether one is supposed to go here, do this or that: you know-the bullshit…The biggest thing that screws us up in life is the mind, it plays tricks on us and can trip you over”.

So, the lesson here is detachment from outcome. Make your decisions, let go and move forward after each decision, vowing only to make better decisions as you mature. This is so true in healthcare, being called upon to continually make decisions after dealing with one problem after another.

Those docs who never get this have a real hard time moving forward in life and practice especially.

A New Vision of The Future

Lately, my most enjoyable time spent with our colleagues has given me cause to look back on all the events in private practice during the last year. Lots of what we first wrote about in “Practice by Design” has come to pass. Future Shock is here, and as Toffler observed, may very well be modern mans most serious psychological affliction. So here is A New Vision of The Future.

One of our sisters recently so poignantly asked me ”Patti, you keep talking about all the changes. What do you mean, and what’s happening?”

So what I thought I would do is summarize how the events of the last 12 months have impacted doctor’s behaviors and decisions in private practice. Don’t read any further if you want sugarcoated op-ed. This is not it.

The most striking thing I warned doctors about was that unless you the Doctor clearly handle finances in private practice (no, its not like the ER), patients are gone, especially in the scared and frightening media driven economics for so many of those we serve. In essence, you need to be crystal clear, and also priced for the realities of your own future! Are you serving humanity to the best of your abilities, and at the same time selling higher tiers of care to those who want and will gladly pay in full? Not everyone wants or needs a Rolls Royce, but they still make and sell plenty of them.

Patients are no different, when unique service is needed. And wanted. Help give them their health back, teach them how to maintain it, and it’s the greatest gift ever. Literally, they get their lives back!

These are the harsh realities of practice today. It’s not the latest “lets see what I can max on an insurance case” that some still are advocating. Unless you like audits and recovery efforts by insurance carriers.

Unfortunately, way too many Doctors still fall miserably short as professionals (because of their thinking) in this regard and wind up stressed out, unrewarded, and sometimes out of practice.

The next big thing certainly is not staying in close, regular contact with past patients, and all your referral colleagues. Especially when the economy tanks. Costs rise, and you could, like many foolish business today cancel marketing expenditures. You may erroneously ration or stop marketing to those who have seen you before and refer to you every month, because it might cost you 1000-2000$/month to do so, (even though you might generate 10k-20k more/month!).

The next biggie is continuing to staff the practice like you are the UAW. I guarantee, no ones going to be there to bail you out.

Don’t get me wrong. Excellent staff that help drive the practice are worth every dollar. But are you sacrificing your own future because of poor or antiquated decisions or just not handling willful non-compliance?

And what about your current staffing and HR Systems? Have you made these as bullet proof and compliant as possible?

What too many doctors will also need to fully develop and integrate is their information and data management systems into autopilot style marketing. This includes a powerful web presence in many parts of he country.

Just ask your next new patient where they found out about you, and you’ll quickly see what I mean.

Another huge issue I see is that too many doctors do not realize that our current economy is the best time to build a practice!

Finally change is perpetual. This past year is such a powerful example. Your practice as a business is no different.

That’s why our company has added several new learning products, an entirely new website, elaborate web based management software, six new core modules to our coaching programs, print on demand newsletter services, 24 hour call center, digital media patient education files, done for you advertising, etc., etc.

We also introduced several new patient specific care programs in the practice that are allowing us to help patients we previously had to refer, or simply could not help.

My team and I did this all within the last several months, while testing these along side our current systems in our private practice everyday.

As it should be in your practice too, the strong will thrive and prosper.

But it will take an entirely new set of management, operational and marketing skills.

If you’re up to the challenge, I welcome the opportunity to help you build your perfect practice.

Start your office day right!

If you haven’t already tried this tip, I suggest you adopt it for 2 weeks, and tell me if it does not make a huge difference. 10 minutes before starting a patient shift, gather all your team in a private area. Have a copy of your Schedule, New Patient Log, and Missed appointment log. Go over each briefly, with the entire team. Make sure full communication is present amongst your players. Make sure your Team Captain (even if its you) are acting as the moderator.

Just doing this alone can have a huge impact on your practice.

Here’s a challenge to all clients and guests. Try this your next full week. Then email us or post to our Blog the results. I look forward to sharing your experiences.

Personal Power, Profit, and Influence

Without personal power, profit and influence, in your own life and practice, you are unlikely to learn from the past, deal with the present and plan as accurately as possible for the future.  But just why are these so important?

 One of my fascinations as a consultant comes from dealing the vast differences in how people view the world, as well as their own professions.

 Even more fascinating, is how they respond to the wide variety of situations we are all presented with every day.  Now this is something I’ve written on extensively, during the last three years, and continue to research on almost daily basis.

Of course, there are many reasons for these vast differences, even among similar groups of people.

 No doubt, the largest factor accounting for personal power, profit and influence is personal beliefs about the world we live in and then how we should act upon incoming information and react or not to the situations we are faced with on almost a moment-to-moment basis. 

Our personal beliefs are what comprise our self-image.  Many years ago, Dr. Maxwell Maltz, a plastic surgeon observed this in his patients, and then went on to write about it extensively in his landmark work, “Psychocybernetics”.

 Dr. Matltz’s observations at the time were, and still are landmark, in dealing with human behavior and achievement. Matlz observed that humans have the unique capacity to set courses like a missile, and hit targets with precision. He also astutely observed that these missile courses are never over a straight line, and indeed the vast majority of travel time is off course.

Q. So what causes a missile, or you or I to hit our targets? 

A. It’s actually continual course correction.  

Q. And which is the faster course?

A. It’s always a straight line.

Q. Which combination of characteristics produces a straighter line in professional practice development?

A. It’s Personal Power, Profit and Influence. 

Success, happiness and fulfillment in practice and in life are always a combination of accurate assessment and response, over and over again. (This is also why the mechanisms we teach to run and grow a professional practice actually work.)

As keen as Maltz’s observations were, it really wasn’t until 1970 when Alvin Toffler wrote “Future Shock” did we come to understand again, some of the reasons why we have vast differences not only in human behavior, but society as a whole. 

Toffler’s work also clearly demonstrates how ignorance of these factors can lead entire groups and organizations to become ineffective, powerless and unprofitable.

Not unlike healthcare professionals (“providers”).

Not because they (we) changed, but rather the world changed.

Seemingly very quickly.

So how can we not only survive, but also prosper and grow as individuals and professionals? How can we stand for solid principles and render the excellence in human services we have been trained to do?

It will be only through Personal Power, Profit, and Influence.

Personal Power comes from building all aspects of our lives on a firm foundation.  Personal power in this day and age fully develops only with an eye clearly on the future.   Ignorance of either the speed of change or the magnitude of change will lead to failure. Without firm foundations, principles and beliefs, we are like trees without roots.

With a firm foundation however we can weather hurricanes, tornadoes and tsunamis.

 And profit. You, and you alone will determine your financial future. Without profit and savings, a strong financial future is impossibility. Without a strong financial position, we actually end up powerless, in so many ways.

 Lastly, let’s talk about influence. Many of us ignore the impact of our influence on our patients, our staff, and most especially our communities. Those doctors, who maintain a high degree of influence not only in their offices, but also in their communities, will undoubtedly be those who master personal power and profit.

  In  “Future Shock- Personal Power, Profit and Influence”, we explored around the USA exploring the role all these have not only in our personal and professional lives, but the significant impact our collective efforts have in producing meaningful results and a bright future, not just for a very unique profession, but for our healthcare system.  And, most especially our patients. Personal power, profit and influence.

 

I hope you will join me on the quest to preserve patient choice, the affordable access to private healthcare, and the highest quality of care possible.

It’s Decision Time Again

New Year’s is always a decision time. More importantly, it’s your decision time. Will you do something with your New Year’s resolution this year? If you’re ready to turn things around and kick it off on the right foot, join us.

Our resolutions are real. Our processes are successful. All you have to do is call to get started! 339-793-8610

Will Your New Year’s Resolution Come True This Year?

Let’s have some straight talk about your New Year’s resolution.

How many times have you resolved to make more time for your family this year? Perhaps, your resolution has been to take a family vacation or work less hours. It really doesn’t matter what your specific goals have been.

The real question is…how often have you achieved them?

If you’re like a good 85% of the practicing doctors out there, trying to run a business and keep everything afloat got in the way of your goals.

Of course, we know it wasn’t intentional. No one ignores their family, misses vacations and works ridiculous hours just for fun.

No…that’s not what happens. The truth is, our jobs get harder each year. Demands, rules and regulations continue to surmount. What are we supposed to do? Furthermore, how can we possibly keep up and still enjoy our lives and fulfill that New Year’s resolution?

The fact is, there’s really only one way to do it. Specifically, plan.

Wow, just one word? Yeah, that’s right. If you plan it right, details included, the rest will follow.

Yes, you will have to work, but this is different. This is the work that will truly pay you back in the long run and help you fulfill that New Year’s resolution each and every year.

Plan to make your New Year’s resolution a success

This is the place where you begin to think, “oh, I’ve heard this crap before.” Right? If so, you may already be destined to a failed resolution. If, on the other hand, you’re thinking, “maybe they’re right” or “exactly what are they talking about” then, you’ve got a chance.

Private Practice or Not?

Do you want to be in private practice or spend your time as an employee? That is choice all of us must make at some point in our medical careers. That’s not to say we can’t change our minds. We can. But, the first decision leads to these types of questions.

You’ve come to the end of a road. Residency and internships are wrapping up. What now?

We went to medical school not business school. Of course, most of us probably learned something about business along the way, but was it enough? If you had to decide right now how to open a successful private medical practice or transition to one, could you do it?

Do you know how to make the right decisions the first time? When it comes to things like marketing, staff planning, logo and image, are you prepared to take that step. If you’re anything like the majority of us, you can’t afford to make too many mistakes.

There are bills to be paid and loans to repay and now it’s time to get busy putting all of our years of hard work into practice. But how? How do you follow your heart and dreams of having a private medical practice and still accomplish your personal, professional and financial goals?

It can be done!

How Do You Open A Successful Private edical Practice?

Speaking honestly, that’s not a one sentence answer. It takes some knowledge and tools to do this right the first time. Personally, many of us learned a long time ago that tapping into others success and failures would shortcut our own errors. Of course, everyone will still make some, but they don’t have to be as painful. If you grab a coach along the way, life is easier.

Our team has years of experience. We’ve done everything possible to knock the bumps and bruises out of the way. Those coming out of school or switching lanes can have a smoother transition. If you’re interested in learning more, we’d like to talk to you. Together we’ll decide if you’re a good fit for our assistance.

Though we’d love to help everyone, not everyone can or will do what it takes to take their private medical practice to the next level.

Give us a call to see if we can work something out together.  339-793-8610 We will do our best to help you achieve success, if you feel you’ve got what it takes.
