ATLANTA, GA | DECEMBER 2018 – Today, the national trade publication, Concierge Medicine Today (CMT), announced The Top 25 Peer-Recommended Book Titles for Concierge Medicine Physicians of 2019. On the heels of new statistics specific to Concierge Medicine and subscription-based clinics and another national Concierge Medicine FORUM annual conference in Atlanta, GA in late October, which they released earlier this week on their website, CMT found 63% of physician respondents said … “I Read/Listen to About 1-2 Books Per Month.” Additionally, 32% said … “I Read/Listen to About 2-6 Books Per Month.” Subsequently, many of the same physicians reporting they read [or listen to audio books] to 2-6 books each month specific to learning more about running a business also said … “I have a full patient panel and a vibrant medical practice.”

“Longtime [CMT] readers will note that this is not the first time we’ve put a list like this together,” said Michael Tetreault, Editor-in-Chief of CMT. “The list of critical resources for entrepreneurial physicians is simply growing because so many more physicians want to lean-in to their entrepreneurial gifts.”

CMT has spent the past several years specifically asking successful physicians: what they read?; what they do on a weekly basis to succeed?; and its staff have become students and story tellers about the unique environments physicians have created in their communities to help people for more than a decade now.

“These are not just books about healthcare,” notes Tetreault. “These are books Physicians in this field are reading and recommend to others that they do the same if they practice in this field of healthcare.”

The following list is devoted to books that offer business guidance, provoke creativity and provide the strongest provocation about what it is like to be creative in your business and serve others in unique ways.
