Your Answer: Our practice has seen a steady growth since I purchased it in 2012. I would say the biggest reason for our success is that we treat our patients like friends and family.

This has led to our patients not feeling "pressured" and allows them to decide what care they want and when they want it.
Your Answer: Do something you have passion for! If your passion is great enough, you can weather the storms of the economy, patient fluctuations, and rising costs.
