158 – Dr. X Files #1 – Why is my salary decreasing!?!? Didn’t our practice get bought by a Hedge Fund??!
What’s good everyone,
New series!!! Sometimes you have to meet doctors where they’re at. It takes a lot to get on a podcast and be 100% honest about how your practice and put your name on it. So, I’ve started a series where I interview doctors who have important stories for us to learn from – they just would rather stay anonymous. I don’t have a problem with it, and neither should you. Information is power, and we got a ways to learn before we can say we’re in the driver’s seat with healthcare.
My very first guest is a physician who trained at one of the finest medical institutions in world and decided to join a private practice. He lets us in to what it was like for a hedge fund / venture capitalist firm to purchase his group and the drastic effects it had afterwards. Doc keeps it real on this episode. He also talked about:
- Making hard decisions between happiness and the almighty dollar
- His attending’s thoughts on locum tenens
- What does being a partner mean in private practice
- The warning signs we all need to pay attention to when in practice.
