PTO 42 | Financial Policy
  Puff Daddy’s iconic song goes “It’s all about the Benjamins!” That is why if you’re going to work hard, be sure that you’re getting paid for it because you have value. Unfortunately, not all PTs realize this. They do not like dealing with the numbers and billing headaches. This is where Kevin Cappel of Jet PT Billing comes in. Moving from PT ownership to consulting to starting his own PT billing company, Kevin definitely
PTO 41 | EMR
  Deciding on an EMR (electronic medical record) or switching to a different EMR is a huge undertaking, one that will take you at least six months to groove into your company, along with the associated tears, cursing, and bleary-eyed late nights screaming at your laptop. There can definitely be a love-hate relationship with them since none of them are perfect and we rely on them so much. In this episode I decided to ask
PTO 40 | Debunking PT Myths
  Dr. Jamey Schrier is back, and this time he’s on a tear! He is the Founder and CEO of The Practice Freedom Method, a business training for physical therapists. Jamey is not one to hold back and he’s got a few things on his mind about some of the common refrains we hear in physical therapy – things regarding quality time and patient care, the need for continuing education, the PT down the street
PTO 39 | Physical Therapy Market Trends
  Jerod Bowen, PT has spent the past nine years dealing with start-ups, sales, and acquisitions of different healthcare specialties – physical therapy, family practice, chiropractic, surgical centers, etc. Along the way, Jerod’s been able to witness the trends and, thus, has a great perspective of what’s coming for physical therapy. As he sees it, we’re at the “tail end” of what’s been happening in the healthcare industry, and that is larger organizations and networks
PTO 38 | New Clinic
  Matt Esrick, DPT is a “long-time listener” and reached out to me regarding some of the content of the podcast. Matt’s a new clinic owner (less than a year) and, although he has an MBA, he still has some issues that he has to deal with – marketing, building relationships with physicians, and establishing himself in a crowded marketplace. John Woolf, PT has been a recent guest. When I told him about Matt’s situation,
PTO 37 | Recruiting PTs
  Brian Weidner, President and Co-Founder of Career Tree Network, has been a resource for companies looking for PTs for over a decade. Rather quickly, he figured out that if you’re looking for a PT, you have to be constantly active and working your recruiting plan. Most PTs like where they’re working and aren’t necessarily looking for their next job. However many are what Brian would call “passive” applicants, looking to just “see what’s out
PTO 36 | Firing Faster
  Robert Brown, PTA, is one of the few PTAs in the country who owns a physical therapy clinic, plus he is the first PT clinic owner that I’ve interviewed who purchased his practice. Wouldn’t you know, just like any other PT clinic owner, he came across the same issues related to culture, staffing, growth, recruiting, and billing that any de novo clinic has experienced. You may think that since Rob purchased the clinic that some of
PTO 35 | Niche PT Practice
Michele Kehrer, PT, comes to us as an owner who has been through some incredible tragedies in her life and, while overcoming those tragedies, concurrently established a thriving niche PT practice. Now she looks at life and business ownership through a different lens. Everyday is full of gratitude. Little “issues” are quickly addressed or minimized. Her priorities are quite a bit different. Now she shares her insights with us and those whom she coaches. She has definitely made the jump
PTO 34 | Relationship-Building
John Woolf, PT, is out to change healthcare and not with any amazing technological breakthroughs. Rather, John is determined to change the practitioner’s mindset and redirect their focus on the patient (not their evidence-based care they provide) and aligning with the patient. By doing so, John has learned that patients are more engaged in their therapy – attending their PT sessions, following instructions, decreasing the cancellation rates, staying with their therapy/therapist, and completing their Plan
PTO 33 | Clinics
Starting your own clinic can already feel like going over a mountain, how much more when you have more than twenty clinics on hand? Someone who knows just how that feels is co-owner and co-founder of HealthQuest Physical Therapy in Michigan, Bill Knight. We pick his brain as he narrates his experiences of owning twenty plus clinics which continue to grow and expand. He talks about the elements that made them successful while giving great

Nathan Shields,
PT, MPT -

The Physical Therapy Owners Club Podcast was started from Nathan’s belief that physical therapy clinic owners are masters at creating stability and freedom for their patients yet…. rarely experience it themselves.
