Consider Hiring a Practice Management Consultant

1. The most important thing I learned from starting a practice 10yrs ago, make an investment and get a good practice management consultant
2. Too many areas to consider when starting a practice
3. Start an electronic medical record
4. Keep up with medicare and government regulations
5. Get a high quality front office staff
6. You have too much to consider on the medical side to to devote on the practice side by yourself.
