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.

"Lots of Complaints about Why I am Not Busy”

I needed to have 1 of my Chiropractic College students sit in on a report of findings that is done with a video and written booklet as detailed in consulting section #4, “Office Systems & Admissibility” #2-4 and called 5 local doctors. NO ONE uses either the video presentation or the written report of findings. I got a huge reality check and “wake-up call” as to why too many struggle.

I can certify that I had a PVA of 113, which equates to every patient staying for 113 visits on average over my career. You might not want to have that and that is perfectly OK… but… if your PVA is 9-17-17-24 or anything below 30, you are running a FAILING pain practice. 

The single best way to ensure a successful practice is to have both a written report of findings following a video presentation.

If you fail to plan…then you plan to fail… It’s not because you aren’t working harder, just not smarter!!!!
