Whether launching a solo practice or a venture with multiple colleagues, careful planning is the key to ensuring your success. Planning and hard work will assure practice success and growth. Physicians starting a new practice must develop and follow a sound strategy to open an efficient and profitable practice in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Their knowledge and experience will be critical to a smooth start up.
