Reader Review
Great business advice for the new chiropractor, July 2, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Spartanburg, SC
A very rare find within the field of chiropractic. This book presents solid and very practical advice for new chiropractors just starting out. I thought that the authors did a nice job with detailing the necessary steps in negotiating a business lease. Much of the material that is included is written in an easy to understand format that is not intimidating to the inexperienced chiropractor.

Information such as this is difficult to find in our profession.The book is basically broken up into two portions. The first half deals with practice startup which is filled with many great ideas on how to keep office overhead low while making the office extremely functional. The second portion of the book deals with patient management advice during your first year in practice. The authors also included a nice assortment of office forms that can be utilized in the private office setting.

If you are in the process of opening a chiropractic office this book is a must read.
