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.”

Be sure to track your efforts with my FREE referral tracking spreadsheet
