Hi. This is Dave Kats with Therapist Consultants and I have a tip for you.
There's a way that you can use people that are not fully licensed to benefit your clinic. Some interns are not fully licensed and cannot see patients but they can do administrative things in your office and they often do them for free or a very inexpensive rate. The other way to engage interns is to have the ones that can legally see patients help in your practice with the overflow of patients. At times what I see happening with interns in practices is this: the head therapist will charge $150 an hour. There are some people that come to your office that can't pay you $150 an hour. For those people, you can route them to your intern and they can charge whatever they want, $90 or $100 an hour, whatever you want them to charge and it gives you a way to treat everybody while you still remain at your full charge. I would think about this very seriously. I see so many practices who use interns to provide great value. I have one doctor that has five interns and he said that his profit (not the gross collections but the profit after he pays them) is $2,500 a month from those interns. You think about it, maybe it's time for you to get an intern or two or three and as a result, build your practice and your revenue and help more people at the same time.
This is Dave Kats. Thanks for listening.
