Hello all. I know I have not been present for a long time. Starting my 3rd year. It has been really hard to say the least. I just started paying my self 700.00 bi-weekly. 
In August 2015, 2 months  before I open my door to see patients,  I had been approved For  a start up loan by a big American  bank. They never released the money. I had already committed with land lord to start paying rent in 10/2015. I already had furniture and everything to start. I had to cash a small 401k and asked family and friends for loans. 
Credentialing was another uphill struggle. Even though I had 200 patients that followed me from my previous job I could not get reimbursed because CMS and Florida Blue , main payers here took more than a year to get my credentialing in place. 
My recommendation for those wanting to open a solo practice. Have enough money =funding that will cover at least 30 months of your expenses!! 
With regard to parking, make sure you have designated handicap parking. For some payers is almost a requirement and some patients need it.
Blessing from above to all!!

just do it. Your style of delivery matters much more than parking. And if you grow, you will move anyway.
