Starting a medical practice from scratch was never supposed to be easy. When my husband and I started our medical clinic, I never dreamed of the problems we would face – insurance denials, audits, accounting nightmares, hiring and firing staff, training staff, endless paperwork, EMR, government regulations. Not to mention all the drama. It was an adventure that soon turned into a nightmare.
Fast forward to today, our medical practice is now a success. We have implemented systems and protocols that have changed the way our practice runs. I never really thought much about it until I started visiting medical practices and realized how much practitioners are struggling. They needed help, and I knew what to do. Thus, Burkman Consulting was formed in 2014.
We at Burkman Consulting stand out from other practice management consultants because of of our dedication to building medical practices from the ground up. Our staff have experience as medical assistants, billers, front desk personnel, as well as practice managers. In a nutshell, we have done it all. We have heard the complaints of the staff, worries from spouses and concerns from physicians about their practices.
While we were trying to build our individual practices, our ability to buy groceries and pay our mortgages was totally dependent on what happened within our offices. In other words, we had skin in the game. Our choices were to rise above the issues we kept encountering and find practical solutions or go down with the practice. We chose to fix our issues and elevate the practice in the process.
These experiences led to a passion for the field of consulting. Our staff hold numerous degrees and certificates that give us the credibility to help improve practices. However, it is the years of experience that allow us to offer personalized solutions.
