3 Pieces of Helpful Advice For Physical Therapy Clinic Owners 


  1. Develop a marketing plan. Marketing your practice directly to your demographic is not optional, it’s crucial. It’s so important for the people in your area to understand what services your clinic offers, and to know the benefits of coming to your clinic versus somewhere else. 


Marketing dollars are precious, and we know that! Instead of wasting funds with experimental ads, PT Entrepreneur can help you to identify your competition, develop a realistic marketing budget for you, and help to maximize the return to your investment.


  1.  Make sure your team runs like a well oiled machine. Nobody likes to call a clinic and receive bad customer service. It totally turns them off from taking the next step to get help for themselves by making an appointment. One of the most important aspects of a clinic is the eloquence in which patients are handled over the phone, email and in person. 


PT Entrepreneur will help create a plan for customer service for your staff to learn from. Treating your patients like clients instead of numbers will not only improve your reputation as an upstanding clinic, it can also increase word of mouth referrals.


  1. Establish a strong billing and collections system. As unfortunate as it is to say, the truth is that every year, hundreds of thousands of dollars are lost due to incompetent staff and lack of oversight.  This is why it’s crucial that your clinic  collects payment on a timely basis so you remain in control of your long term investment. 

Remember, insurance companies main goal is to avoid paying you! PT Entrepreneur will work with your clinic to create a system of operations that will give you the capability to monitor its performance, billing, and collections.
