Independent Pediatrician: Hold the Vision, Trust the Process

I’m delighted to share our first-ever “subscriber penned” contribution to the Independent Pediatrician: Hold the Vision, Trust the Process …by Dr. Jill Garripoli.  She was inspired by IP and sent us the story of how she started her own independent pediatric practice and, in her words, “How to be a deliberate creator and achieve work-life balance.” …

Pediatric Patient Recall Strategies Recorded Webinar

A few weeks ago, with the help from some friends, we hosted a webinar on the topic of Patient Recall Strategies for pediatricians.  We had more than 50 attendees (which is a lot for these things) and I was glad to get this particular subject recorded for reference.

The Podcast Is Back!

Update: iTunes users can subscribe to the podcast right here! That’s right, the mellifluous sounds of my voice are back. It’s an entirely new podcast – new program, new people…same focus, though. When Brandon and I retired the Pediatric Practice Management Awesomecast, we agreed that either of us might start recording again at some time …

Introducing ViewPoint!

Every now and then, we get a pleasant surprise.  I’d like to introduce ViewPoint, the new digital-only magazine from our friends at The Verden Group.  When Susanne sent me a note saying, “Check this out…” I spent the next 45 minutes reading it from cover to cover. ViewPoint is TVG’s effort to review the entire …
