Bravery in Your Chiropractic Office

be goal driven, brave, with humor

Bravery is one of the themes of our practice manager training program.

Brave, Not Perfect is the title of an excellent book by Reshma Saujani, and also from her TED talk with the same title. She states that our culture influences girls to be perfect while boys can be wilder, take risks, and make more mistakes. She encourages women to be braver.

I think this can apply to us all.

Practice Manager Success Story

But this newsletter is about a success story. A story of bravery and integrity. It is also to boast about one of our managers who recently graduated from our Goal Driven Practice MBA program for chiropractic and healthcare offices and demonstrated these values.

As the practice manager, she also does the billing in this office. The chiropractic doctor had treated a patient who had suffered a motor vehicle accident. She submitted the bill to a 3rd party, reducing the what was owed slightly as the doctor agreed to discount some of the services.

The 3rd party company came back and said they could only pay 70% of the bill.

This was the manager's response:

"Good morning,

"Thank you for letting us know.

"We provided 100% of the care that our patient needed; therefore, we require 100% payment of our services we provided. The original discounted offer of $X,XXX is no longer valid.

"We have decided to pursue the full amount plus interest, along with any court/attorney fees if we haven't received payment in the full amount of $Y,YYY by March 7th."

"Thank you,


"Manager of Chiropractic Health Clinic"

She received the full amount before March 7th.

Be Brave -- with Integrity and Humor

Be nice, be fair, but first, be brave.

This can apply to scheduling patients at the front desk. It applies to reporting on the patient's condition and treatment plan options. It applies to promotions and advertising. It can apply to training and coaching for you and your team.

It takes courage to become a doctor, to start a business, and even to work as a professional in an independent healthcare clinic. It takes even more to succeed at doing so.

But hey, it can be fun. And it helps to have some humor.

Our manager made a copy of the correspondence with the claims company with a copy of the check. She gave it as a surprise to her clinic director, who sent me a text with the image of what she gave him. On the copy of the email, she included a handwritten quote from the classic comedy movie Princess Bride:


Stay Brave and Goal Driven -- and Have Fun.
