2017-10-17T16:10:20+00:00

Is your WHY big enough and does it really matter?

2017-10-17T15:46:40+00:00

We’ve all heard the phrase, “When the “Why” is big enough the “How” becomes easy.” Dr. Angie and I always talk about “Headspace” and “Procedure”. Regardless of who we are coaching and what we are discussing what inevitably it comes down to making sure that our head is in the right place and that we have [...]

Survey: are your patients referring?

2017-10-17T15:11:28+00:00

We all want patients who happily stay, pay, and refer. When new patients come to us, we want to make sure that they have a great experience so that they "get" what we do. We then move to ensure that they stay because we can't restore them to optimal health if they don't show up. So when does [...]
