There are hundreds of consultants that can offer you advice. But are they right for you, and do you need one at all?
How is your profitability? It is important for you and your office to know what your numbers look like. Do your reports show a steady decline? Take a look and analyze the following: accounts receivable, annual production and collection, treatment opportunities, and new patients. These numbers determine where focus needs to be placed to see the results you want.
Are you working long hours? If you come into your office early, work crazy all day with no breaks and no lunch you may want someone to help you organize your schedule in order to help make your day feel less busy, while still increasing profits.
Next, assess how your staff’s morale is? Have patients commented on the low energy of your office. Or do you have negativity seeping into the office? It can be difficult to build morale and increase productivity when you are dealing with day to day negativity. Sometimes all you need is a little outside support.
Is retirement in your future or do you just see mounds of work ahead of you? At some point in your life you may chose to sell your practice or you may decide it is time to retire.
