Freak Out!

By Dr. Angie Meyer | Chiropractic Care , Chiropractic Strategies

“To panic, or not to panic, that is the question…”

How many times in your life has a challenging situation arose and you find yourself on the brink of a panic? It could be a car accident, the athletic performance of your life, your teenager got suspended from school, your dog is missing or someone in your office poses a difficult question you don’t know how to answer.  You have a choice ~ to panic or not to panic?

My Patients Are Tired of Seeing Me

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Chiropractic Care , Chiropractic issues

Here’s a scenario that I know happens in all of our offices. A doctor writes to me:

“I have just had a progress exam form filled in and a patient has circled that she was happy with care and happy with changes but that she finds the process tedious. 

I guess when I talk to her at her progress eval I need to find out what exactly she finds tedious, but I have a feeling that it was just the frequency of care… which I can’t really change. If that is the case I am not really sure of a solution other than to stop care or just suck it up and deal with the fact you do have to come in regularly to see the changes you want.

Any feedback would be great, Dr. Rosen.”

Before I get to my response, I’m curious if this HAS happened to you in your office. It may not sound the exact same way, but you’ve probably heard things like:

  • Do I really have to come X number of appointments in a week?
  • When can I stop coming so often?
  • Is it going to hurt things if I miss an appointment every so often?
  • Are there ways to reduce the number of appointments I need?

Aloha Gang!

A few weeks ago, Dr. Tedd Koren and I sat down as part of the Optimal Health Summit where we got into some absolutely mesmerizing concepts and resources for chiropractors. One of the things he shared with me was the debut of an exciting new book of his that would be hitting shelves in a few weeks. I asked him if we could catch up after the summit and talk about the book in detail, and he graciously accepted.

In this interview, the LEGENDARY Dr. Tedd Koren discusses his new book, “Cancer is Natural and So is the Cure!”

This book is a MUST-HAVE for your collection if you have made it your goal to help the chronically ill get healthy.

Back in the Saddle Update from Dr. Rosen PLUS Should I talk about symptoms?

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Chiropractic Care , Chiropractic Strategies

Should we talk symptoms?

I often get asked this question by doctors who are considering coaching with me.

More often than not they sheepishly ask this question as CLEARLY they are not comfortable NOT talking symptoms but feel that if they are a true, “Vitalistic” or “Straight” or “Subluxation based” chiropractor they should not talk symptoms.

Or they are religious zealots telling me how it is not “Real chiropractic” if you talk about symptoms!

How to Deal with Patients Who Tell You They Don’t Have the Money BEFORE the ROF

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Chiropractic Care , Chiropractic Strategies , Communications

In the past week, I have had a similar conversation with 3 of my chiropractic coaching clients so I thought I would write about it.

Part of our responsibility as practitioners is to be able to communicate clearly with our patients.

Today’s digital world can be dangerous for personal health because there is so much misinformation everywhere.

As a result of this misinformation, many patients come to us with expectations for the treatment’s length and cost. We talk a lot about chiropractor communication strategies and how to utilize them so that patients truly “get” what we do and want what we offer.

Do you Struggle getting patients to your WORKSHOPS?

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Chiropractic Care , Communications

Has this ever happened to you?

At the start of the day, you have 10 people scheduled into your workshop. You’re pumped about the opportunity to share the chiropractic message and are looking forward to providing boat loads of value. But…as the day goes on you can hear your CA on the phone taking call after call as your patients continue to come up with excuses about why they can’t make it to your workshop tonight. By the time the workshop comes around your delivering your talk to 2 people….arghhhh!

If this sounds familiar then know that you’re not alone. This scenario plays out in this form or very similar ones in chiropractic offices around the globe!Continue reading

What to do when a patient says, “I can’t afford your care.”

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Chiropractic Care , Chiropractic issues

If you’ve been discovering how to run a profitable chiropractic business for more than 5 minutes, then a patient has told you that they need to stop or reduce care because they could no longer afford it!

This exact situation tends to impact us as chiropractors on so many levels. For many of us, it’s like an arrow to the heart and brings up all sorts of issues around value and self worth.

I want to share with you the two big mistakes chiropractors make when confronting this situation and share my top strategies for getting to the real reason your patient wants to stop care.

How You Respond Initially is Important

In my experience working with thousands of doctors around the globe, I have realized that most chiropractors respond to this statement in one of two (equally bad) ways.Continue reading

Feeling versus Function (Improving Chiropractor Communication)

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Chiropractic Care , Chiropractic Strategies

As a chiropractor, it’s sometimes challenging to get our patients to understand what we REALLY offer. If they did, they’d want it, every single time. My chiropractic coaching experience has given me some clarity on the matter that I’d like to share with you.

So where’s the disconnect?

One of the great challenges I find is that most chiropractors never find out what the patient actually wants before we tell them how much care they need. Chiropractor communication as a root cause leads to all sorts of problems with your practice.Continue reading
