Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Doctors PI Program? A program to get personal injury cases because of your clinical excellence. The program is engineered to sustain your success for a lifetime and have the referral sources run after you because you are the solution.
Why is this program unique? Personal injury success is not based on the success of the marketing. The personal injury marketplace changes every time a court renders a new decision and/or the carriers take a different tactic in how they function with you. This program changes often and keeps you ahead of those changes. No one in the industry keeps you up to date on changes as we do.
What dictates success in personal injury? Success in personal injury, along with success in personal injury marketing (PI Marketing) largly depends upon how the medical-legal community is trending. As we have clients in 44 states and Dr. Studin lectures to lawyers in 25 states, we are able to constantly see "future trends" and prepare for tomorrow...today.
Is this a marketing program? Yes. Although marketing is not what creates your success in personal injury, it is how to help expand your practice base once you have created an admissible infrastructure. Our marketing programs are simply the best in the nation for personal injury and is centered on your clinical excellence.
What is the cost of the program? The fee is $199 monthly with a 1-time set up fee of $225. If you have a mature practice ther are no other fees other than post-doctoral courses if you need to earn credentials.
Is there a length of stay requirement in the contract? No, this is a month to month program. If you do not feel this program is for you, quit at any time with no risk.
How long does it take to start getting new cases? It takes on the average 6-8 weeks to build your infrastructure. New cases usually start at that point.
Do you market my practice for me? No...and you do not want us to. We teach you how to get the referral sources running after you. This way, should you ever terminte our relationship, your referrals never stop.
How much time do I need to invest to make this work? We have designed the program to take 15 minutes a day for 6-8 weeks to build your infrastructure.
How do I get help if needed? Simply call us. We are available 7 days a week and you can call as often as needed.
Is there a set appointment time to call weekly? No...that is counterproductive and counterintuitive. If you call every Monday at 3pm, what if you have a question on another day? Call anytime and as often as you need, when you need an answer.
How is my clinical excellence going to get me new cases if I am not going to market? We have numerous clearly outlined programs on how to get the referrals. We are going to use a combination of internal and external referral sources that have been market tested and are all reproducible. In addition, our staff will be working with your staff and training them on suggested tasks.
What if I need clinical help? Included in the program is a spine specialist to help on any clinical issues. In essence, you have a clinical consultant to call anytime.
Do I sign up with an experienced doctor only to have a consultant assigned to me who is less experience? No, you wil be working exclusively with Dr. Studin who is a 30+ year practitioner.
Can I be successful in personal injury if I do not have a CV or narrative? Although those are tools that are required, part of our job is to teach you how to create those tools and guide you through the process. The process is much easier than neuro-anatomy and we all got through that!
Do I have to pay anything in addition to the $199 once i get started? The only additional costs you could incur is if you need to take addition course work to get formal credentials. Our post-doctoral courses are not included in the Doctors PI Program. However, if you have a mature practice (HIPAA forms, evaluation templates, SOAP notes, etc...), you should need to purchase anything in addition.
Is the Colossus training included in the $199? Yes. We teach you the entire Colossus protocols and how to implement them into both your reporting and then how to communicate that with the legal community.
Can I have my staff do this for me? No, although your staff can support you, this program is based upon the "doctor's clinical excellence." That will be the core of your success.
Do I need to buy any expensive equipment? The most expensive piece of equipment needed is a 2-piece inclinometer. A hand-held one is the minimum requirement and should be in every office as a doctor's basic tool regardless of personal injury.
What if I have multiple doctors in my office? The cost is the same and each additional doctor is charged a 1-time $75 credentialing fee.
Is there a help desk? Yes, we have a full time program coordinator and an entire support team for any technical issues.
Is the program hard to follow once I get started? That is the easiest part. Once you start, you get a manual that guides you "step-by-step." You also get complete written instructions on how to proceed at the beginning as well as verbal instructions to support the process. And as always, you can call to simply clear up any lingering issues.
Are there any compliance reviews involved? Yes, the very first thing you do, once you get started is send us a copy of your records and we do a complaince review.
How often in the proigram updated? The core of the success of the Doctors PI Program is that is changes very often. Sometimes weekly. Most personal injury programs "tweak" their program as new research becomes available. Although we do that, the real changes are necessitated by the courts who dictate the what constitutes success in personal injury. As Dr. Studin has lectured to over 120,000 personal injury lawyers nationally and continues to do so 30-35 times per year in 26 states, he is continually in front of both plaintiff and defense lawyers who teach him the changes in the courts, which then mandate how we need to change in order to the meet the most current standards of the courts. Anything less, puts you behind the curve and becomes nothing more than practicing with yesterday's paradigm and will eventually "derail your success." This program is designed to ensure your success for the balance of your career.
