Coaching

I love to coach, guide and mentor. 

The way I look at is: if my experience, lessons and insights I’ve gleaned over the years can help people, why not share them?

One day I was talking with a loyal reader of PediatricInc about this very topic, and she suggested I do coaching sessions.

She went on to say, “…you know doctors do not get training in business, management, marketing, collections… having somebody to reach out to, that has business and practice management training is valuable.”

“Like a practice management coach?” I asked.

She said, “ yeah, that is a good way to put it.”

My loyal reader and I  talked a little while longer about this idea. By the time we finished up, she had convinced me to make myself available to coach doctors with their practice.

Below are a just a few topics I have a particular interest in. But managing a practice – as I’m sure you know – quite complex. So the range of topics is not limited to the list below.

Coaching Topics Can Include:
  • Opening a Private Practice
  • Budgeting
  • Evaluating Cost & Revenue Opportunities
  • Customer Service (Training)
  • Marketing Your Practice
  • How to Leverage Social Media
  • Web Design
  • Advertising
  • Key Financial Indicators
  • Account Receivable Management

Rates and Packages

Single Session:

The Single Coaching Session is intended to review, discuss or go over a pressing matter in your practice.

During these sessions, practice managers or physician owners need basic direction. In other words, the assurance they are on the right path or that they have not overlooked something important.

Others use the single coaching sessions to get a better understanding of the issue at hand. They find that talking with somebody that is experienced and familiar with the medical practice environment helps them organize their thoughts and prioritize task.

Included:

  • 1x Phone Consultation: Up to 45 minutes over Phone or Skype.
  • No email followup.
  • $150


Two Sessions Package:

The two session coaching package is designed for situations that are more complicated, thus require more time. Furthermore, the two package coaching session allow more time to identify the core issues, reflect, evaluate, provide sound advice and insight that can be difficult to provide for a short period.

Included in the package:

  • 2x Phone Consultations, up to 45 minutes each
  • Plus free email followups in between calls, valid for 30 days.
  • $250 total. (Save $50 + get free email coaching)


Four Sessions Package:

This package is designed to address issues that are on-going. For example, clients that have bought the four session coaching package have used it to decide whether to purchase their employer’s practice, define strategies to negotiate with payors and design a social media campaign that elevates a practice’s presence in a crowded market.

However, these are just a few examples. You may buy the Four Session Package and use it however you see fit.

  • 4x Phone Consultations, up to 45 minutes each,
  • Plus free email followups in between calls, valid for 45 days.
  • $500 total. (Save $100 + get free email coaching)


Flexible Package:

Although the Flexible Package can be used for a variety of things, the package was created with the solo-practitioner or the two doc practice in mind that does not yet have an office manager or a practice administrator on staff yet, thus requires access to coaching services free of a bound schedule.

For example, let’s say you are a solo physician, and you started your practice a few months ago. You’re managing the patients fine (because you were trained to do so), but you’re at a point where the administrative and practice management task are becoming overwhelming.

The flexible package gives you the freedom to send me an email or pick up the phone to discuss and resolve an issue.

  • 6x Phone Consults
  • Two emails a week (valid for 3 months).
  • Schedule calls whenever you need it.
  • $650 total. (Save $250 + get free email coaching)
Free 15min Consult

Not sure if you want to commit? No problem. I offer free 15-minutes consult. During this time, we can discuss broadly your objectives/needs, talk about my experience, my strength or anything else you would like to discuss before making a commitment with a package.
