Congratulations on taking care of your self and leaving an abuse system / employer.
When you say micropractice – are you planning on accepting insurance? Or doing insurance free / direct primary care?
We've been in a direct care practice 8+ years and have helped over 500 docs convert to this model in the last few years.
All of our consulting is always free and most of our info for new direct care clinics is online at www.atlas.md/starter
Some doctors are able to get out of their non-competes b/c hospital owned / insurance practice à solo insurance free can be argued as too different to be competition. Also, often docs will have non-competes in states where they are not enforceable.
But also, the direct care practice allows for a lot of telemedicine so your 20 mile buffer may not bother many patients when they can call/text/email/video chat. Also you can do labs anywhere (quest, labcorp draw centers etc). And you can stock wholesale meds in house and mail them to patients.
We've helped open docs in as fast as 10 days (crazy but worked) but usually recommend 1-3 months once you have a location. Finding a location is the hardest (then negotiating the lease, signing, cleaning / construction). The rest (marketing, website, facebook, clia, etc) can all be done very quickly.
