Running Overtime

Hi, this is David Kats with Therapist Consultants, and I have a tip for you.

I find that many therapists run over in the therapy sessions. They schedule patients on the hour, but they'll run up to about 55, 60 minutes before they actually cut off the session, and then they either tight or they run behind. I suggest that you move to 45-minute sessions. This allows you to put in your notes and go home on time. Think about this with all your new patients, when you start to schedule them, say, "Here's how we work, our fee is $150, and we have 45-minute sessions, and I have sessions available on Thursday or on Friday, which day do you prefer?"

See, when they say Friday or Thursday, or even if they say, "Do you have anything on Saturday?" and you say yes, they've already agreed to $150 and they've already agreed to have 45-minute session. I think that if you move to 45-minute sessions, you'll feel much more rested, you'll do a better job, you'll get your notes done on time, and you'll go home on time.

This is David Kats, thanks for listening.
