Academy of Chiropractic Personal Injury & Primary Spine Care Program

Quickie Consult 320

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.

"Index of Medical-Legal Bi-Monthly Fliers"

This is what was just posted on the Web site under "Educational Materials." This is  listed as "0" so it is always in the beginning and easy to find. Every other week, when a new flyer (topic) is added, we will add it to the index so that you have an updated list bi-weekly to share with the lawyers. 
I am now soliciting everyone's advice on how to better use this library. Please understand that if a lawyer understands every one of these topics, they will never lose a case on rhetoric. Many of you have used this material for years...Please SHARE your successes so that everyone can be helped.
