“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?Continue reading
Has a patient ever told you that your technique is the “same thing” as another type of doctor they see (like a physio)?
This happened to one of my wellness practice coaching clients recently. It was followed up by a challenge.
I asked this doctor about their response, which was both something I hear all the time and not very good.
Around this time of year, we get a lot of doctors asking how they can raise their fees.
This audio is from our “Half Hour to Power” Group coaching call.
As always there are two pieces to the puzzle. The first is headspace… and man, this is a doozy for so many of us. Am I worth that much? Will they think I am all about the money? Etc. Etc. Etc.
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:
During our Half Hour to Power, a doctor asked, “If I have 45 minutes in the morning before I have to get the kids up and start the day what daily rituals would you recommend to clear my head and clarify goals for the day? Should I go to the gym, meditate, read goals?”
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.
There is not a week that goes by that I don’t get an email from a doctor complaining about their staff. It sounds something like this:
Does any of that sound familiar?
If you have been in practice for more than a year, you have had at least some staff challenges if not a full melt down!
We have doctors ask us all the time. “How do I get my CAs on fire? I have heard of these legendary beings, or even worse, I have seen them, but why aren’t MY CAs rock stars?!”
Years ago, it was a safe assumption to bet that virtually all chiropractors “did” the same things. Nearly all new patients came from internal referrals, too.
My, how time changes things.
Today, you could probably visit ten different chiropractors and get ten WILDLY different experiences.
The list goes on!
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!
