Excellent, very helpful, provided exactly what I needed as an MD who has never run his own clinic. Very practical advice all the way down to where to get good deals on equipment and supplies, how to process payments, issues with scope of practice, insurance, and building leases. Thank you so much for helping me to start out right and avoid making a myriad of mistakes"
