I'm late to this thread, but I am in family practice (just started) and the doctors see about 20-25 pts/day and the PAs about 10-20 (20 being quite rare, 15 seems average) like the OP also. This practice is definitely profitable. ?? Not sure why the discrepancy.
I'm very interested in this also. I was just offered a position with 30% of collections. Based on what the owner of the practice said, the other PA brings in about 400K/year...so he makes about $130K/year...and he works 35 hours/week. Granted, he's been there a few years. I'm just now doing research on this, so I'm looking for answers. This post is timely. The base salary isn't great (70K), but the practice is amazing and I'm really only working about 35 hours/week. Lots to think about.
