Quickie Consult 273

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.

"Colossus"

Let me make this perfectly clear. If you pander to the lawyers in an attempt to beat the colossus metrics, then be prepared to defend yourself and your documentation in a variety of forums, none favorable to you.

The reports that are supposed to "bust" the colossus program are written in a format that no medical specialist or even a non-specialist writes. Those reports are only written by "whores" attempting to pander to the plaintiff's lawyer. Think about the last time you got an IME report from an unscrupulous doctor who was pandering to the insurance company. What was the first thing that came to your mind? That whore!!! You are doing the exact same thing and it is unprofessional and unnecessary in order to best represent your patient from a posture of clinical excellence and admissibly.  If you follow the protocols outlined in these consultations and in the formats outlined in the initial evaluation, SOAP notes and final narrative, you will accomplish the same task desired and overcome the colossus crap without pandering to the lawyer or becoming that whore you so despise.
