You've probably heard me say that medicine is a business. It takes work to run a successful business. There are good days and bad days. And, no matter how hard you try, like all business owners, you'll make mistakes. That's the truth. But with mistakes comes experience. The key to running a successful private medical practice, or any business for that matter, is to learn from missteps. Ideally you learn how to grow from other people's mistakes rather than have to make them yourself.Today I chat with Dr. Christine Meyers of Christine Meyers and Associates about her journey from being an employed physician to starting her own practice and ultimately growing it to the 19 providers she has today. While I want you to hear that it is really possible to have a phenomenally successful practice, the real goal of this episode is to talk about the mistakes she and I have both made along the way.Dr. Meyers and I discuss everything from hiring providers, to figuring out space requirements to managing staff, how and what to delegate and more. You'll hear about the common pitfalls that many practice owners experience and how to avoid them. One of the most important takeaways from my conversation with Dr. Meyers is, no matter what stage you are at in starting, running or growing your private practice, you need to be actively involved in the management and learn from every experience.
