Academy of Chiropractic Personal Injury & Primary Spine Care Program

Quickie Consult 301

From the Desk of Dr. Mark Studin
Academy of Chiropractic
Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"You Will Get a Girlfriend Named Bubba"

Let me make this perfectly clear...
If you offer gift certificates, dinners, vacations, clothing, pocketbooks or any other type of inducements to the staff of the lawyers for referrals, for appointments, for diverting patients to you or any other way to help in your "get rich quick scheme," you are breaking the law. There is no difference between this and handing them a lunch bag full of cash in the eyes of the law. Eventually, you will end up in jail and hence, the title of this consultation. In addition, if I should find out that you engage in any illegal activities, no matter how you disguise it, will signal the end of our relationship...forever.
That is the resolve you need to take with any person or entity that attempts to engage you in any questionable activity. Eventually, they will drag you down with them.THIS A NON-NEGOTIABLE RULE IN LIFE AND PRACTICE.
The following e-mail was just sent to a doctor 5 minutes ago who was giving "gift certificates" to a receptionist in a lawyer's office. Oh...I forgot to tell you..the amount was for 10% of his recoveries on each case!!
Dear Dr. xxxxxx,
This e-mail is to formally inform you that the Lawyers PI Program, The Academy of Chiropractic and CMCS Management, Inc. is formally terminating and severing any relationship with both you and your practice. Your business practices, whether intentional or not, are something that we are not equipped to consult for and it is in our mutual best interest not to go forward from here on out. Your monthly billing for membership will be stopped as of today.
This is not something that is up for discussion. My last piece of advice to you is to consult a criminal lawyer, as this is well beyond health care law, to help mitigate any future actions against you and your practice.
There is not enough money on the planet to make it worth being associated at any level with criminals, no matter how they choose to disguise themselves...Eventually, it will bite you in the ass!
