Going Solo: Making the Leap - Feature
ABSTRACT: Frustrated by current practice and convinced of a better way, the author left his salaried position and opened a solo practice with no staff. Because his overhead costs are extremely low, the author is able to see fewer patients per day and create more meaningful interactions. By offering unfettered access, the author finds that his patients trust him more and actually call him less.
