Building a Cash-Based Practice

Throughout my 17 years of practice, I have seen too many practices come and go. Many have struggled with diminished reimbursements from insurance companies or had a difficult time asking for money for services rendered. As a chiropractor who has built two cash-based practices in two different states, Colorado and Florida, it is possible to build a successful practice that is not dependent on insurance reimbursements, that provides free time, and whose patients are happy to pay for services.

From the Director's Desk

A significant shift in the perception of the chiropractic profession by the public has become more prominent, because of the achievements of chiropractors treating athletes.
