Practice Manager Tip – Stress Management Before the Holidays

November 8, 2012

Does this sound like you? It’s 4:00 am and your eyes are wide open. Running through your head are all of the items on your TO DO list that you still haven’t gotten done. It seems that managing your medical practice requires a seemingly never-ending list of priorities that produces stress and anxiety no matter what time of day. Then you start worrying that you need your sleep to have the energy to get all of those tasks done. You toss and turn and start watching the clock – 4:15, 4:40, 5:10 – now it’s less than an hour before the alarm goes off. You start your day stressed out and tired.

From My Clients

“Rebecca working with you has been such a pleasure. As you know Practice Managers are far beyond busy and getting the security policies done is so important therefore getting us out of the office to get them done in two days is the only way to do it. Not only did you make it easy for us, you got us out of our offices, provided a lovely environment to work in and we walked away accomplishing an extremely daunting task. Practice Manager Solutions is top notch. Thank you and please keep me informed if you decide to do another workshop.”
