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
I’m excited to bring back Dimi, Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos, PT, DPT, MD, PhD, DSc, ECS, as we discuss the seven facts that will be and are changing the future of the PT industry. Dimi runs a number of physical therapy businesses – clinics, continuing education company, diagnostics – and also been on a number of local and national PT boards. He has perspective, and thus I believe he is expert on what is happening to
PTO 31 | Front Office
Dee Bills, PT, spent a year perfecting her clinic’s front office procedures and now has it down to a science. Dee found Front Office Guru in 2016 and now specifically trains front offices to optimize the patient experience, the arrival rates, and, thus, the collections at the front desk. In doing so, she has been able to turn around clinics that were severely under-performing to eventually achieving more than 95% arrival rates week over week.
PTO 30 | Business Coach
  Jeff McMenamy, OT, and Dr. Sabrina Starling (from the previous episode) join me in a conversation about Jeff’s success and how his success is directly related to the business coaching that Dr. Starling provided and continues to provide him. Jeff started his clinic in a two-car garage and now owns four clinics across Wyoming – Teton Therapy. His life changed forever when Dr. Starling asked one question. Take a listen to the episode to

Nathan Shields,
