Physical Therapy Clinic Owners are MASTERS at creating stability and freedom in their patients' lives, YET rarely experience it themselves. AND the first step to success is as simple as reaching out. PT ownership requires its owners to juggle a lot – productivity and efficiency from themselves and their teams, management of human resources, marketing, healthcare regulations, etc. – all to fulfill their dreams of business stability, freedom, and affecting lives for good. At the heart of it they are entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurs need resources to thrive, grow, and succeed. IF you’re a PT clinic owner and trying to get your clinic off the ground or grow your business, you can always learn from others who have been there, done that. PT Owners Club will introduce you to fellow PT Owners who will share their paths to stability, freedom, and success! Join the club!

  To achieve the best results for your business, you should be more innovative and open to new ideas in creating systems that would make your staff and your client’s life easier.

A physical therapist for over twenty
PTO 45 | Expansion
  Dr. Tim Thorsen, DPT has had a lot of success in gradually expanding and stabilizing his physical therapy company. Although he had done that in many different ways, Tim had found how it was when he relied on the right people, who are aligned with his company, that he has been most successful. This goes back to Jim Collins’ Good to Great principle – first who, then what. Tim shares how he applied this

PTO 43 | Social Media
  Owner of Crom Rehabilitation, Dr. Roy Rivera, Jr., PT, PhD, DPT, MCHES isn’t a social media expert. However, he has leveraged social media and his clinic’s specialization to become the number one result on Google and Yelp for “Houston Physical Therapy.” Considering how huge Houston is and adding that to the fact that Roy has only been in practice for four years, this feat is undeniably amazing. Roy tells us how he did it.
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 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
