Fam Pract Manag. 2000;7(3):15

To the Editor:

Family Practice Management seems oriented more toward large groups and clinics, further marginalizing the dinosaur solos.

Editor's response:

I'm sorry you have that impression of FPM, because we are trying to serve family physicians in virtually all practice models. The range of settings in which family physicians practice is so broad, and the journal is so slender, that it does present a challenge to have something for everyone. Still, most of each issue, from “Coding and Documentation” to “Balancing Act,” should be useful to any practicing family physician.

Two elements in this issue in particular may interest those in solo practice:

  • "A Model for Successful Rural Practice" describes how a rural community and its physicians found creative solutions to the problems of rural health care.

  • "Practice Diary" offers real-life, frontline lessons from Sanford J. Brown, MD, a solo family physician.
