Stroke Ammunition

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Communications , Patient issues

I was going back and forth with Dr. Christopher Kent about info I could send to my docs about this whole stroke issue.

If you have not heard, it has blown up in California; I am sure there will be a ripple effect.

As far as I am concerned there is no one on the planet who knows more about this and who I trust more than Dr. Kent. Below is an email that he put together and we wanted to forward it to you.Continue reading

Can I still ask questions and be the authority? (Chiropractic Business Support)

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Communications , Patient issues , Patient Strategies

Do I lose my AUTHORITY when I ask SOCRATIC questions?

I had a doctor ask me the other day, “Russ, how can I be Socratic and ask questions and STILL be the AUTHORITY?

I think we’ve all heard this before: “You need to be the authority with your patients and you need to TELL them what to do.”

Yet many of us have found that by just “telling our patients” we don’t get the results that we would hope for. And of course why would we? The fact is most people do NOT like to be told what to do.Continue reading

Making Health Screenings & Outside Talks Work for Your Chiropractic Business

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Communications , Patient issues

We have all heard the quote, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.

Can we really do well with outside talks and screenings? In this day and age do they still work?

YES! Emphatically yes! But you need to know HOW to get in and HOW to do them.

I speak with docs all the time that first don’t know how to set them up and second don’t know what to do if they do set them up. How about you?

I want you to go home and sleep on it.

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

When coaching doctors through the report of findings process, we hear them say thing like

“I try to show them the care plan I would recommend and then tell them that I don’t want them to make a decision today. The last thing we want to do is pressure them to do anything. So we want you to go home and sleep on it and come back next time and let me know if you would like to do a program of care or just pay per visit for now.”

That all makes sense, doesn’t it? When I hear this kind of statement, I find that the doctor is in one of two categories: they are non-assertive and “roll over” when a patient pushes back (sometimes referred to as the O.K. Corral) or they’re tired of the high-pressure sales tactics that they’ve been told they HAVE to use. (By the way – the second category almost ALWAYS says that the high-pressure stuff has ruined their reputation and cut down on their referrals.)

Here is the problem with using the quote above: it is BS!

Survey: are your patients referring?

By Dr. Russ Rosen | Communications , Patient issues , Patient Strategies

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 that third part come into play? When do we figure out the right time to focus on “refer”?

This is a subject that is certainly up for debate. Head to a convention or a conference and bring it up during happy hour – you’ll hear lots of opinions and ideas. Which ones are right? Which ones are realistic? Most importantly: which ones actually work?
