Synergy and Energy

By Dr. Rick Wren

Dear Colleagues and Friends, the last few weeks have been leading me to discuss Synergy and Energy with myself and others. Mainly in the area of Adjusting hours. Some of us are scheduling adjustments over way to many hours and it is making it difficult to stay focused and energized.

Two young doctors that I had discussions with during the past 2 weeks were scheduling adjustments out over way too many hours of the day. If you are adjusting less than a hundred patients per week, you should schedule only 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening. That gives you the middle of the day to schedule new patients and go out and market yourself.

Here is an example schedule:

Doctors Adjusting Hours
Monday-Wednesday-Thursday: 8:00-9:00, 11:00-12:00, 4:00-6:00
Tuesday: 4:00-6:00
Friday: 8:00-9:00, 11:00-12:00

You schedule new patients and exams in between adjusting hours. You schedule Group reports one hour each day for new patients. You use the long lunch break to go out and meet people. You should hand out at least 10 business cards every day. You use Tuesday mornings and afternoon to catch up on office work and have weekly staff meetings and training’s.

The key is to adjust your patients like you do family (2 minutes). Talk Chiropractic only (that won’t last long). Learn how to do a Group report once a day with new patients (it is powerful). Allow patients to choose long term care or short term care (you and your family chose long term). Then allow for patients to pay for long term care at one time (paying every visit gets annoying).

I schedule 22.5 hours of adjusting each week and adjust 400 per week solo. Starting in January, I am synergizing down to 17.5 hours and my practice will go up from the increased focus.

I have talked hundreds of Doctors into cutting their hours back and their practices always went up due to the increased Synergy and Energy. So do it and don’t look back.

Hope to see you in Vegas in January for the 50th anniversary ( with 8,000 others. The Rio Hotel is already sold out, but most hotels are only a five dollar cab ride away or they have free shuttles.
