Before creating this clinic, I had a hand full of worries. What if the insurance companies don’t credential with us? What if the patients don’t come? What if . . . maybe a thousand other things?
The money is trickling in . . . but enough to pay the bills. Much more is on the way.
So what is the great stress? We are in the middle of an avalanche of demand. We have had a 120-120% full schedule for the past four weeks. Looking into the future, it is the same well into April. The problem? I have calls every day from providers asking me to do them a favor and work in their patient, before we open, after we are closed, during lunch . . .anytime! All our lunches are booked. We haven’t seen the benefit, financially of all the hard work as we just came out of our “being closed shadow.” But it looks good for the coming weeks.
My mind is contemplating hiring help. But it is impossible do that without some financial reserve.
It is just ironic how I laid in bed a night or two a year ago worrying . . . what if I build it . . . and no one comes? Guess what? They came.
