From the Desk of Dr. Mark Studin
Academy of Chiropractic
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. 

“Remove the Narrative Heading”

Too many of you are still adding a heading to the narrative and you SHOULDN’T. The most common mistakes are:

1.  Narrative

2.  Final Narrative

3.  Report for Mrs. Jones

4.  Accident Report

5.  Lawyer’s Report

And so…On

This is a report, similar to any evaluation report that has no heading. However, your opening paragraph should say something like this:

The following is a report concerning the injuries of Old MacDonald, a 45-year-old male, sustained as a result of an automobile accident on 1/21/2016

Then… get into the narrative for the lawyer…
