 “A physician who treats himself has a fool for a patient.” - William Osler

Starting a medical practice should be rewarding venture; it can also be painful if not done correctly. The most common mistakes and missed opportunities within a medical/dental practice are the blind spots to all the moving parts to a medical practice; keeping on top of the changes in the field; looking for ways to maximize financial performance; developing brand image; marketing efforts; strategic planning’ team building; EMR compliance; collections; office location and build-out; credentialing; patient care – just to name a few! Whether you are starting a new medical/dental practice or challenged with the ongoing management of your current practice, we are here for you.

It’s a known fact that medical school does not train physicians how to start a medical practice. Opening a new practice or reworking an existing practice is a process with a million variables that requires expertise. Ideally you bring in an expert to help you – just as your patients rely on your expertise vs. patients’ self-diagnosing or treating their medical challenges.

In the long run, the upfront investment in the expertise will not only save you time and money but it will generate more money than you could have without consulting with an expert. We understand that minimizing costs and maximizing your full revenue potential from the start is the key to your professional and financial success.

Personal Coaching

“Our chief want in life is somebody who will make us do what we can.”–Ralph Waldo Emerson

Working one-on-one with our clients is a very proactive process, tailored for people who are ready to engage directly in change. We create results. As your coach, we’ll explore options, discover what you really want in life, and focus on what you truly love to do. Then we’ll work with you to design (or redefine) your life around the “what’s most important”, setting values-based goals and prioritized action items, and diligently integrate them into your life. Working with your coach helps you move beyond self-limiting behaviors and concepts.

Your personal goals, challenges and aspirations are explored and your coach works to discover what is limiting your ability to deliver on goals, dreams or promises you want to realize – Thriving in all areas of life – not simply surviving. You experience breakthroughs and unprecedented freedom and fulfillment and develop tools for life!
