This is exactly the very first question that must be answered by each and every doctor in private practice. Having said this, I will also tell you the major cause of failure in practice is a poor initial design or redesign.
This is also why in today’s world we advocate a reassessment by each member doctor every three months!
So think here in ultimate terms. We suggest a litmus test of 12 criteria, which when met, will propel you to personal and professional fulfillment. If you are in a group practice right now, especially as a newbie, you might have far less latitude in creation of your perfect practice.
By its very nature, private practice is entrepreneurial. Unfortunately, too many do not possess the needed skills to flourish, yet others are wildly successful.
Here is the one key difference.
The successful Private Practice Owners learn these entrepreneurial skills, and never stop growing.
This is a great part of the challenge of private practice, but hence the huge potential rewards.
And let’s keep it that way. Its one of the hallmarks of a free society, and really a privilege.
If you want a 9-5 type job, there are plenty out there.
My first criterion for our doctors is that emotional and financial rewards are far greater than the stress level.
If this is not true, why would you continue to tolerate it without changing how you operate?
Do you see how having a primary criterion like this can set the stage for success?
And how practicing without these criteria being met is a recipe for ultimate unhappiness and likely failure?
By now, you get my drift. This is why I am so adamant that doctors learn fully to “Practice by Design”©.
In reality, these are the ket elements of The 12 Secrets of Private Practice Mastery.
