Sometimes, it’s obvious that a practice may not be the best for you. Other times, its more difficult to tell. Try to find out about physician and staff retention in the practice. I can often help you to find out this information and more which may be a bit sensitive for you to ask directly.
There is no perfect practice. Rather, just like with marriage, there is someone for everyone. However, there are signs to look for and questions to ask yourself when considering a new practice. First, do the doctors get along and seem to have common goals. Is there a good flow and energy between the doctors and the stall’?
lf the practice is busy and therefore has a lot of referral sources, then that’s a positive sign. If not and the practice is asking you to develop referrals, this is more of a challenge and you should try to find out all you can about the referral network during your discussions with the practice.
