With the ever-mounting changes in healthcare and how physicians practice, I wanted to share my experience as a young owner of a private practice. While this may seem like a distant goal, you may be contemplating this type of practice structure.
In today's day to day work environment, it is imperative to know the obstacles you may face. The number of today's solo practitioners are dwindling in favor of hospital-based employment, multi-specialty groups and/or larger podiatry groups. This could be due to the vast amount of responsibility put upon the doctor.
It is no wonder we are seeing reports of physician burn-out at an all-time high. So how does one successfully manage all of these variables and still provide the highest quality of medical care to our patients as a solo practitioner? The answer is simple. Evolve.
