Academy of Chiropractic Personal Injury & Primary Spine Care Program

Quickie Consult 205

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.

“The Stark Truth”

This was sent to me today by a doctor who dropped out of the program because he had licensure issues and nominal fines. I will be working with him again shortly. The doctor couldn't be happier...I will qualify it momentarily. Here is what he sent me today:
Hello Dr Mark. It has become necessary to cancel my membership with you for awhile. I will rejoin you as soon as possible. Your program has been very valuable to me this last year. I was turned over to my state board, by an insurance co., for over-treating but because of your program I was able to only get a slap on the wrist for some minor infractions. Also, Medicare has audited me with no penalties or problems. Please cancel my membership as of today. I look forward to working with you again. Thanks Dr. XXX
For those who have been in the program for years, you have endured me leveraging you to get a voluntary audit with Dr. Schonfeld for $500 (516-695-7732). I have used scare tactics, logical explanations, thorough obnoxiousness and orders to pay exquisite attention to your documentation. The above testimonial is the biggest "thank-you" I could get validating the various levels of me getting you to do the right thing...and...protecting you from YOU! 
This doctor will proverbially "live to fight another day" and care for patients because he listened. If the carriers are intent on finding something wrong, they will in anyone's office nationally. I do not know what they found with this doctor...but...if the state board gave him a slap on the wrist and he will be able to practice, then he has been doing most everything right.
I urge you to do the following right now: 
1.  Download the SOAP Note form from the Web site (free) and either use it or make sure your electronic forms match mine.
2.  Send me a sample of your intake, history and evaluation forms (blank) via fax (661-843-1062).
3.  Get a voluntary chart audit from Dr. Schonfeld (non-negotiable).
4.  BURN your travel cards.
The 4 items above will ensure that you will have the same or better results than the doctor who provided the testimonial above.
