Quickie Consult 42

From the Desk of: Allison Bonk

Program Coordinator

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.

Don't Let Your Sample Narrative Get Near Your Educational Binder

After Quickie Consult #41 was sent last week, within hours I had received a half a dozen phone calls about the educational binders.  It seems many of you have misunderstood what goes where.  Your sample narrative DOES NOT go into your educational binder.  The educational binder contains your CV and the educational fliers created to date. You should have multiple binders, as you should be willing to give one to the lawyer you are meeting with, based on the agreement of the lawyer to have you come into his practice on a monthly basis and provide him with the two newest fliers and supportive research, spending about 15 minutes educating the lawyer and his/her staff regarding the fliers. This is also the case when first meeting the lawyer to work on achieving your goal of getting invited into their practice on a monthly basis as an educator.


Your sample narrative should be laminated and put in a separate binder or portfolio, one that the lawyer will see, but NEVER GET until they refer a patient to you.  If the lawyer is given your sample narrative initially, he can easily give it to another doctor to use as a template, and you are quickly out of the picture.  If you need to review this information, please see Consultation #27. Remember the 6 P's...Proper Planning Prevent Piss Poor Performance...Be Prepared!
