“Where to start?!! The implementation of the Management Program in my clinic has overall saved all of us a TON of time, helped to increase individual productivity, and also the ability to truly create and achieve our goals as a group.

“Of course the most important thing and fun activity to do was to actually put my vision and mission into reality with writing the Administrative Scale. The one pervasive complaint of all staff members that showed up in my survey of each of them was that they did not know my vision and goals and wanted to. They did not know because I did not clearly know yet! Thank you to my SSI Trainer for spending the hours that it took to create my vision and purpose clearly!

“The technology of writing programs and then [writing] plans off each program was truly an enormous breakthrough for me. I have always had good ideas and had no idea why they did not make it into reality when they were so good?! This tool is amazing at helping to get every idea into action right away, or when the time is right.

“The communication system has helped to make 100% of orders and requests heard and answered in a timely manner. All of my orders in the past were verbal. It’s a wonder anything got done! The communication system allows employees to have an organized list of things to do so they can be successful instead of having to keep a task on a sticky or in their head and then beat themselves up later for forgetting to do it and me having to remember to check up on them to see if it was done.

“Writing all job descriptions and clinic policies has helped each employee know exactly what is expected of them and has empowered them to be their best. Having each employee know their responsibility to the clinic’s daily and weekly actions and able to see in their statistics how they are doing in regards to creating their products has given everyone power in their position. It has taken things off my plate and made everyone feel they are a very valuable part of the team. It has made “management” so much easier because employees regulate themselves and the need for getting on team members to do better is rarely necessary anymore.

“I have to thank my Consultant for her patience and steadfast skill at helping me to implement this. I could not have and would not have gotten it all in place without her weekly support meetings and helping me to take the next step.

“Thank you Survival Strategies and for delivering all this technology to my clinic and so many others. You are responsible for helping me feel like my dreams can come true, that my employees are able to see their higher purpose in their daily activities, and that we as a group really can create anything.

“Bigger than that, you are helping our field of PT become stronger and helping more individuals be empowered to take care of their bodies with exercise and knowledge and less use of medications.”

“Our first encounter with Survival Strategies was with the Practice Analysis. Initially we were very skeptical about investing time and money in Survival Strategies’ program. We contacted several of their previous clients and most of our fears were put to rest.

“After participating in our six day intensive training program in California our remaining fears were put to rest.

“The management strategies we acquired enabled us to run our business more efficiently and improved our bottom-line. Our patient attendance increased from 77% to 88% with some weeks peaking as high as 90%. Our collections have improved by 25%. We have learned to manage our business by statistics; this along with motivation and perseverance is the key to success.”

They (Survival Strategies) seem to have all the answers. I’m not exaggerating; they have the ability to handle EVERY situation. I am very thankful that I took that chance almost two years ago and gave Survival Strategies a call. It has paid off in leaps and bounds. I have gone from a small clinic seeing roughly 120 visits a week with only 4 employees, to 12 employees treating 270 visits at week end! We’re also getting ready to build our own building and expanding from our modest 2,500 sq. ft. clinic to over 7,800 sq. ft!

I have a great office, but is was truly a mess;
I couldn’t find anything including the desk.
I’d be searching for charts, client contracts and such,
Most of the time I didn’t eat lunch.
But then one day I decided to get help,
‘Cause I couldn’t get out of the mess myself.
I called the West Coast to Survival Strategies,
It was to Bob I made my first plea.
“Oh help, oh help, I’m drowning in clutter.”
“Oh just do the Practice Analysis,” he uttered.
I did it and the next to arrive
Was Tim with a grin and lots of patience inside.
We talked and we planned, we cleaned and we sorted,
I learned how to take control of disorder.
With seven baskets setting upon my desk,
It was Nancy then helped me conquer the rest.
Learning to complete those cycles of action,
So to have peace and job satisfaction.
Am I happy and proud of my clean desk?
You bet…but can you guess the rest?
I’m motivated, pleased and have a Battle Plan,
For Survival Strategies has showed me I can,
Take control of the clutter and stop wasting time.
The results are worth every thin dime!
Thanks for ALL of your help. It truly has made a very positive change in my life.

Ultimately in working with Survival Strategies we have been able to grow approximately 20%, and I expect closer to 30-40% as we continue. We are establishing a business that may just flourish in these days of managed care, rather than languish and die. Without hesitation or reservation, I recommend their services to anyone in business.
