57 Scaling – Regulations And The Future of Therapy With Brandon Seigel

Bradon Seigel

Bradon Seigel

Executive Director

Brandon is the Executive Director at Every Child Achieves in southern California. For the past eight years, Brandon has been empowering an interdisciplinary team of over 100 therapists.

Brandon also guest lectures at therapy conferences and university therapy programs. Brandon comes from the business side of private practice.

Listen in and I think you will agree that he is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the following subjects: Scaling a practice the right way, Human Resource guidelines, contract vs employee, choosing which insurance to be in network with, tracking outcomes and due dates, why his practice stopped seeing adult clients, the future of therapy and healthcare, how to view the competition, and what new practice owners should be aware of.

56 A Private Practice Leads To A Course With Melissa LaPointe

Melissa LaPointe

Melissa LaPointe

Occupational Therapist

Melissa LaPointe is a pediatric occupational therapist, a social entrepreneur, a Restorative Exercise Specialist, an educator and a thought-leader in women’s health. From her private practice sprang  Strong Beginnings, an innovative social enterprise based out of British Columbia, Canada.

She is applying new tools and approaches to work that government has traditionally done. This is a big reason I enjoyed hearing what Melissa is working on. People need more choices in healthcare.

053 How To Ask For Referrals From Doctors And Other Professionals

Question from a practice owner: “What is the best way to approach a doctor to ask them to send me referrals?”

 

This is not the first time I have seen this question. First, I want to point out that the question is flawed. My answers, which I give in this podcast, are like President John F. Kennedy’s quote:  “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” Just insert “potential referral source” for the word “country.”

050 Pros And Cons Of Private Practice – An Interview With Scott’s Family

Scott and Jennifer Harmon Family

Scott and Jennifer Harmon Family

I celebrated my 10th anniversary of private practice and the 50th episode of the podcast almost at the same time this month. It seemed a great reason to bring my family on to talk about private practice.

My wife and I talk about the pros and cons of private practice when we first started and then as we grew. We also bring in our kids and ask them what they think of the family business. My dog even makes an appearance.

At the end we give some details about The Academy of Private Practice. Scott’s best tool to help you start and grow a practice. There is nothing else like it in scope and in value.
