Does your website comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)? Do you know what that means, and what it does take to comply with the ADA? Is it applicable to your small practice website? The answer to these questions and much more is in this video.
Your website for your practice does need to be ADA compliant. In fact, the ADA was first put into law in 1990, which was well before the advent of the Internet. Over the years, it’s been updated and improved for the emerging world we have now, including websites. Recently, the Supreme Court interpreted websites as places of public accommodation under the ADA, which means you need to have it available for people who are visually impaired, sometimes physically impaired, but allow people who have other needs to be able to navigate your website. So, how does that work? How can you do something about your website? And why does it even matter beyond being a good person?

Sorry, but you can't.
But there are a number of ways you can manage your reviews to turn the negative into a positive!
This week I received this question from one of my clients who received a negative review. No matter how good a doctor you are, everyone gets bad reviews sometimes. You can't please everybody all the time, and sometimes these reviewers are just crazy. Since you can’t delete negative reviews, you might be wondering if you should respond to them instead, because, of course, you don't want people seeing these negative reviews and counting out your whole business just based on one random person with a grudge. Naturally, you want potential customers to focus on your more positive reviews. Dealing with reviews of all kinds can be complicated, so we’ve used our experience to bring you several strategies that can make any review into an opportunity to...
Many education and business training programs purport to teach doctors and other health care professionals that they can expand their practice by practicing telemedicine across state lines, or even in other areas of the world, under the guise of calling yourself a “consultant” or “health coach” and by signing a fancy consultant agreement.
Planning to order tests, diagnose illnesses, treat ailments, and prescribe medication (whether taking insurance or not, or getting paid or not), without a license, is a clear violation of the law. License and medical boards, as well as prosecutors, see through this deception and will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law whether you harm someone or not. If you are participating in medical practices that a doctor is licensed to do, then you need a license to practice medicine. It’s simply not a good idea for you to call yourself a health consultant and practice medicine across state lines at the same time.
This week we are talking about the mental side of being an entrepreneur and some of the challenges that brings. I've struggled with a bunch of these challenges myself and worked through them, and so I have some tips and tricks for you. I hope you will find this video helpful as you enter the world without the accountability or direction of a boss and without a set schedule handed to you.
One of the biggest things that I've struggled with, and that people I talk to also struggle with, is that when you're your own boss, nobody is holding you accountable to complete your work. Nobody is breathing down your neck, waiting for you to hand in that project or that report. No one is telling you where to be, what to do, or when to complete all your charts. All of this is now up to you. For the clinical stuff, that is easier. You have been through residency and various training programs, and you can probably complete the clinical items on...
