Comments from Reviewers:

“…If you are a new professional ready for private practice or a seasoned clinician timid about launching as an entrepreneur, take heed. Three distinguished professionals will take you by the hand and give you step by step to set up a practice, enhance its growth and insure its financial success. If you are already in a practice which Managed Care has damaged financially and decreased numerically, specific steps are outlined that can revitalize your practice.”

The book is filled with samples of successful marketing programs which both inspire and inform. Not only will the reader appreciate the wealth of information this book provides but they will value the highly readable style in which it is written”
