Sandra Weitz MD started and ran her own multi-physician private medical practice. She leveraged her practice by adding multiple related revenue streams. The key to her success? Understanding the business of medicine.
Dr. Weitz’s attitude has always been that a physician can provide superlative care, make lots of money and control their work/life balance. But being a great, empathetic, clinician isn’t enough. 
Dr. Weitz is very aware that many physicians are dissatisfied with their employed physician status. And she wondered why more physicians don’t go into private practice.  
After speaking with hundreds of physicians, Dr. Weitz realized that fear and lack of knowledge were the driving forces. In 2020, Dr. Weitz began formally advising physicians on how to start, grow and leverage their medical practices through her podcast, courses, The Private Medical Practice Academy Membership, and Facebook community.
Dr. Weitz breaks the business of medicine down into concrete, actionable steps so that self-doubting physicians can bypass being overwhelmed and instead create the medical practice and financial freedom they crave.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Sandy as she has helped me implement so many things with my growing practice! From breaking down my demographics and determining how many patients have insurance, guiding me through the contracting and credentialing process to helping me make the right decision about hiring another physician! Hands down I look forward to our calls and can’t wait to update her on my progress. I’m not sure I can quantify our relationship, but her tips have saved me so many hours of time and her ability to help me negotiate my time and money are invaluable. I just signed up for another consulting package because I love the direction my practice is going. The confidence I have gained after working Sandy is priceless. You will not regret working with her!"  

Stephanie Juliet Campbell, DO, FAAD

"I am so happy that I found Sandy through her podcast! She has an amazing breadth of knowledge on acquiring or building a medical practice from scratch. I have been in the process of opening my own practice. Sandy is like my personal consultant because every step of the way, she has been providing guidance and suggestions for me. A lot of times I ask her “What are my next steps? What questions should I ask?” Many times she gives advice on things that I would never have thought to ask, but are vital to the process. I have been in other coaching program which are based on group challenges. Sandy’s program is different in that she gives more practical step by step advice, and a ton of personal attention. Anytime I email her a contract to review, I’m always amazed at how quickly she reads over it. Thank you Sandy for not only providing such great content, but also for being my main point of contact alongside my private practice journey!."  

Allison Wade MD

"I am an Orthopedic surgeon, 10 years out from fellowship, and have been employed my whole career.  At this point,  I needed guidance and encouragement to start my own solo Orthopedic Private Practice. Dr. Weitz was able to share her business wisdom and expertise in starting up a practice.  She provided expertise in constructing a pro forma, obtaining financing, and determining staffing needs.  With Dr. Weitz's help and support, I started my practice September 1, 2020.  As a female in a tough profession, she  inspired me to stay focused on the goal of building the practice and staying strong.  I have been open 3 months now and going strong!  The thought of starting a practice can be quite daunting.  I had talked to others throughout the process but always found myself leaning in to hear Dr. Weitz's advice.  She created a confidential and trustworthy environment. Dr. Weitz eased my concerns and was an amazing mentor and guide through the process."  

Steve McDaniel MD

"Using Dr Weitz guidance, I have been able to establish a well-run practice form the ground up. My practice continues to grow and now employs 2 providers and 6 staff. Dr Weitz was able to provide essential information vital to establishing and operating my own practice. She provided the knowledge and support in areas such as developing a business plan, management and staffing that are not taught in medical school.

The freedom my own practice provides me from corporate medicine has brought me a new level of fulfillment with my job. If there is one thing, I would impart to other physicians would be the freedom and fulfillment owning your own practice provides. You do not need to feel like “a cog in the machine”.  Get more joy from you job-get your own practice."

Kedar Sankholkar MD

"Dr. Sandra Weitz, or “Mama Sandy,” as I affectionately call her is like a lighthouse in a difficult-to-navigate ocean. She will take your emotions of wanting to become autonomous, help you direct them through thoughtful, data-driven analysis and turn you into a physician with tools to practice privately. She is eager to speak with you to answer all your questions, to which she usually has an answer or process to have you get the answer. I remember when she showed me how to breakdown every aspect of my practice into several excel spreadsheet templates provided by her to create a bird’s eye view of the practice. Through this and other data collected and analyzed, I was empowered to open my own practice. I remember thinking that Dr. Weitz was “indispensable” as a resource and advisor in the months leading up to opening day. Dr. Weitz has remained actively engaged in helping me with my practice growth since I opened, and she always helps me gain footing with my thoughts and ideas to move the practice forward. If you are thinking of starting or growing your own medical practice and feel like you need a coach by your side, Dr. Sandra Weitz is that person. Her podcasts, group chats, and online course allows you to immerse yourself into the “private practice school” you always wish you had. I’m glad Dr. Weitz is on my team!."

Dr. Anh Tuan Ngo

"I am confident that the reason my private practice is as successful as it is today is due to Dr. Weitz’ guidance while I was a member of the Private Medical Practice Academy. Fresh out of training, in the beginning stages of purchasing a primary care practice, I faced a myriad of issues (contracts, accounts payable, etc.) that I did not know how to even start approaching. I emailed Dr. Weitz and she made sure to call me to understand the context of my situation and provide sound advice going forward. Throughout the start of my business I communicated with Dr. Weitz almost daily with questions and every time she made sure to understand the nuances, provide clear steps, and also prompted me to consider backup plans and various details. I trusted her advice because she also did not hesitate to give constructive critical feedback and clearly brought decades of business administration knowledge specific to what I was trying to do. During the coaching calls, even though I was frequently the only primary care physician amongst multiple subspecialists, I found that her information about fee schedules, marketing, employee conflicts, and recruiting was still invaluable. I now own the practice and provide quality patient care while also choosing my own team and making a difference in both my patients’ and employees’ lives. Thank you Dr. Weitz for your clear-headed mentorship at such a crucial time for my business. Enrolling in the Academy was the best decision I made for my practice."

Dr. Nilanjana Bose

"I'm a board-certified rheumatologist in Houston, and I just launched my private practice called Lonestar Rheumatology in Houston, Texas. I signed up for Sandy's program in November of last year when I was just in the process of launching my practice or making arrangements to launch it. Sandy has been phenomenal.

I think her course is great. I have listened to all her recorded lectures and used her materials widely. She provides great feedback. She's always available by email or phone if needed. She has a lot of templates and forms that physicians or any one in private practice can utilize. We've had great discussions. We usually have monthly talks and like a chat session as well as guest speakers.

I have learned a lot from her course, and I think Sandy is a wonderful resource for anyone considering a private practice or in private practice. So if you have any questions, feel free to message me, but, I recommend Sandy and her course."
