If you ask most independent practice owners, chances are they will tell you that owning a medical practice can be immensely rewarding – but also very challenging.
On the one hand, you have the freedom to practice medicine on your own terms. But you also have an added layer of responsibilities. You are not only responsible for the care of your patients, but you must also look out for the welfare of those who work beside you every day.
So if for some reason you were not able to go to work – if you were ill or unexpectedly injured – that could have significant financial ramifications for you, for your staff and for your practice.
