Preamble: many of these issues I bring are 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 focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice along with more family time. 


I just received yet ANOTHER phone call on how to handle a deposition and ensuing audit from a defense lawyer and the carrier AFTER the doctor GOT CAUGHT not doing it right (documenting) and he knew it wasn’t right, but didn’t make the effort to follow the advice on both the evaluation and the SOAP notes. 

I give you the SOAP Note for FREE… does it get any “friggin’ easier? Even if you have an EMR system, follow the format and the rules of the SOAP note I give you. For the evaluation, it is not mine to give away and the doctors who created it charge a big $150 for the best template in the industry!!! It has been vetted by 1000’s of carriers and lawyers nationally over the last few years. Again, you should already have been audited by me to see if you need this and even if you don’t… get it and follow it especially if you have an associate. It will save you from them screwing up with you being liable for every screw-up they make.

This stuff is REAL and can be negatively life-changing if you don’t follow the rules I lay out for you. I don’t want a call from you about what you “should have done.” By then, it is past time to hire a health care lawyer for $20-30-50-$100,000 and potentially lose your home. That has happened to 2 of our doctors this year. 

And the following is real also… 

This isn’t a scare tactic…OK… yes it is… but in the end... you get to win, make more money have peace, joy and lots of beaches in your life!!!!
