We are in the process of adding legal services in-house as part of our buyers representation services at Shared Practices. We’re currently working with attorney Daniel Saylor to make it happen. There’s a lot of red tape to essentially becoming part law firm, but we’re here to confront our (and your) complicated relationship with “the legal stuff”.

Coaches Corner: Handling Cancellations Part 1

When we released our new patient phone call episodes, we noticed something: offices fumble phone calls because offices don't have an etiquette standard. Go back and listen to the episode published June 20, 2022. You'll notice skilled employees--excellent employees. But you'll also notice a lack of standard phone etiquette. Richard and co-host Caitlin Shoemaker return to teach phone etiquette and a lot more.
