What Your Physician Peers Are Saying About Our New Book!
An Awesome Resource for Transforming Your Medical Practice!
~Amazon.com, Physician Review
“We physicians have needed a “how to” book for along time to help us transform our practices, returning to what we went into the medical field for anyway, and that is to have a personal relationship with our patients…a relationship without the insurance company middlemen or interference in the doctor patient relationship. A great “how to” book with great information on not only how to do it, but how to avoid the pitfalls. I love this book and appreciate the information it contains and the resources it lists for rebuilding my practice…truly going Back to the Basics ( the name of my new practice) in caring for patients as their partner in their healthcare…..just the way it WAS and should be again!” ~Amazon.com, Physician, October 26, 2015
“My story is very much of trying to convert a clinically well regarded single handed practice into something with financial stability and assured income – to enable me to concentrate on the health stuff! I’m reading your new book and am reassured that I have considered most of the issues.” ~Dr. T., Physician, UK
“I absolutely love this book! It has helped me so much! Thank you!” ~Dr. G., CT, Concierge Physician
“If you are a physician considering Concierge Medicine, this is a fantastic resource! Michael Tetreault, editor of Concierge Medicine Today did a phenomenal job!” #PearlsofWisdom #DPC ~Dr. J.P., Physician, Texas via LinkedIn Comment

Like the toolkit found at Concierge Medicine Today, the book walks concierge beginners through the early steps of selling the concierge medicine model to patients (“Top 5 Complaints Heard About Concierge Medicine”), salary expectations across the U.S., whether to go solo or group, how to deals with financing, how to choose a business model, dealing with legal issues…you get the point. If you’re looking for a handbook on how to open your concierge practice, look no further.” ~Teresa Iafolla is eVisit’s Director of Content; Article: 7 Must-have Resources for Concierge Doctors March 6, 2015.

“What this isn’t is a DIY-guide,” says Editor and author, Michael Tetreault. “And if there’s one thing great Doctors know how to do is learn. The book is the size of a college text book and there’s a reason for that. Great Doctors know how to make even greater decisions. We have simply set the table, invited the guests [to read] and let them come to their own conclusions. This space in healthcare is unique and so is every Physician we meet. There shouldn’t be a cookie-cutter book that says ‘this is the way …’ Doctors today need to know what they are getting themselves into and these business models provide a career lifeline for a lot of them. What most authors and self-help business books do today is provide a singular perspective and a cookie cutter, DIY recipe that is only one authors individual story. They draw broad conclusions and think that everyone should do something the way they did it. That’s just not the way the business nor a Physician should approach their career. Isn’t that why they’re leaving medicine in the first place? Someone else is making decisions for them? This guide simply asks them a lot of questions and points them down the path to an educational journey with a lot of their peers perspectives at the forefront of the book.”
