How Doctors Can Improve Care, Lower Costs, and Earn More

In a recent interview with Concierge Medicine Radio, family physician Brian Forrest of Apex, North Carolina discusses his concierge practice (hat tip to Paul Hsieh). CMR summarizes the topics covered:

  • The shockingly simple math behind how reducing overhead and eliminating collections allows primary care physicians to spend more time providing better care while improving their take home pay.
  • How Brian kept his total operating expenses to $50k in the first year and how you can too.
  • The rule of thumb Brian uses to make all his purchasing decisions.
  • The two most effective forms of advertising for Brian’s direct pay practices.
  • How to choose your billing software and Brian’s recommendations.
