I am always fascinated by people's careers, and also constantly on the lookout for professionals whose work supports my physician readers' entrepreneurial activities.
So it was both fun and informative recording this week's Entrepreneurial MD Podcast (yes - it is my intention to create weekly podcasts again, after a dry spell over the holidays) with Joshua P. (Josh) Friedman, a colleague I met through my terrific Provisors business networking group.
Josh is a collection attorney who provides the invaluable service of going after your hard-earned money that still happens to be sitting in another person's wallet. His clients include many practicing physicians who are having difficulty getting paid for their services.
Listen to his clear and educational explanation of what a collection attorney can do to help you boost your bottom line, AND how to minimize the infuriation of bad debt by developing sound office policies, setting solid deadlines for payment, and developing follow-up strategies if your irate phone calls aren't working!
Here is the ACA organization he references near the end of the 17-minute interview.
