You're not breaking rules. This is an organization for any and all who believe in our mission and our goals- keeping small independents alive and thriving. As we say 'staying independent .... together"

Many of us have models of a medical person with others helping with the business side. Many of have envy for those with a good business person :)

So yes, please join in. Your perspective will be helpful to us all. We'd love to hear more from your business side.

I do ask, given you state you find us valuable and important, please consider becoming my a paid member. It's easy- you just click on the button the website. It's only $250/ year and we think money well spent given we're the only primary care focused group in the country providing a place for us all. And we think helpful resources also. And you know how it works- everything takes money to happen.

Thanks. And welcome again.

I technically am breaking rules because I am not the doc, I am the business partner. If that is unacceptable,  please accept my apology and I will delete my account. But I do love this concept, and indeed think there needs to be more of this in the country.

Our model is a bit different. My doc and I are co-founders of the practice -- I handle operations.. I eliminate admin burden from doc so he can just practice. We run lean like a startup (my background) and are growing like crazy. I would love to share thoughts
