New Owner Concerns

Veterinary school provided you the tools to be a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, but are you prepared to own your own practice? Running a practice will test your business orientation, human resource skills, ability to make key decisions, direction and leadership skills, resource managment skills (e.g. cash, inventory, information system), etc. at the same time you are being the Doctor.

As the owner/DVM you are the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the practice, just like CEO's of Fortune 500 companies. One primary difference between you and other CEO's is that your business revolves around your time spent being a Doctor. The more time the Doctor spends doing Doctor things (i.e. diagnosing, prescribing, and treating) the higher the revenue for the practice. So, you have the challenge of being the CEO while continuing to spend as much time as possible doing what you were educated and trained to do - - take care of the animals.

We have worked with Veterinarians from starting/acquiring a practice, through growing and tweaking the financial/operational performance (journey strategy), to an exit strategy. It may be your first time starting or running a business, but we have helped hundreds of clients through all aspects of this journey. Providing our clients with guidance in business, financial and operational issues is our primary role. We focus on providing you the tools and support to help you be an effective CEO while still being the Doctor.
