    Life: “What do you want?” You: “Umm..huh?” Life: “Yeah, what do you want from a job opportunity? Like, haven’t you thought about how many times a week you want to operate? You sure you want 7 hours of clinic on Mondays?” You: “Wow, nobody has ever asked me that. Are you sure you’re talking to me?”   Life: “Of course, I’m talking to you!” You: “7 hours of clinic?!?! On Mondays?! Just reminds me of residency. I’ve always dreamed of having Mondays off, then working 4 days of the week. Is that asking too much?”   Life: “Dude, this is your life! You spent all these years working with other peoples’ schedules, sacrificing your own preferences. C’mon, it’s time to cash in. You: “Well, if you say so.

    Renee and I are looking for another real estate property! With each property, we want to know once they are purchased how soon can we start cash flowing those bad boys! There are numbers that we gotta run to make sure we know what we’re getting into.

  • 253 Should a doctor respond when a patient leaves a bad online review?

    22/11/2021 Duração: 29min

    You can fight it as much as you like, but doctor reviews are important! Look at it this way, if you can rate & review the local cafe, why shouldn’t the person you’re about to operate on have the ability to leave reviews also?! I’ll save that debate for another day! For private practitioners, doctor reviews are normal. For the hospital-employed doctors, medical residents, and young attendings - doctor reviews play an important role in what bonuses you may get. Next time you look at your contract, there might be a provision where a portion of your salary will depend on how many positive reviews and satisfaction scores you get. Catch my drift now? Now that we have established the importance of patient satisfaction - how do you encourage your patients to leave positive reviews? This is where my next guest steps in. Avalon Hartman comes to talk about EmpathIQ -  software that makes it easy for your patients to leave a positive review on your behalf. It works with Google and other major patient review platforms

    There is more to medicine than just memorizing textbooks or doing well on exams. Your bedside manner, working with staff, and communication with your colleagues is just as important. Basically, what is the experience people and patients should have when they meet and interact with you?   That’s what we call a brand. A quick Google search of ‘brand’ and you’ll find that it is the way a product, company, or individual is perceived by those who experience it.
