REVIEWS:

“Sound practical information… written and organized in a way to allow those new to medical group management to recognize immediate benefit. Should be required reading for all newly graduated physicians and medical practice staff.”

Fredrick A. Creighton, MHA, FACMPE, FACHE
CEO, Department of Medicine Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio

“Marc Halleys new book is spot on what is currently happening in every doctors office across the country. A must read for anyone who wants to keep their head above water and their business solvent.”

Larry Kaskel MD
Host of “The Business of Medicine” on Reach MD XM 157

“As I travel throughout the US working with physicians, I am struck that their major complaints about residency are not about grueling hours or failure to learn judgment and technique.  Their most common complaints, by far, are that they feel poorly prepared to deal with the practice of medicine.  Marc Halley’s latest book on starting a practice is loaded with practical suggestions about employment vs. entrepreneurship, practice location, family issues, competition, payer considerations, and financial performance evaluation.

“Becoming familiar with the topics in this book will facilitate physicians’ becoming more comfortable with one of their most important life decisions- how and where they will practice.  My only regret is that Marc Halley did not write it in a previous century, so that I could have read it before I took my first job!”
