You’ll learn how to analyze your monthly practice management reports to maximize your revenue cycle and profit by making informed decisions. Some of the topics we’ll cover include insurance contracts and (re)negotiations, fee schedules, maximizing your payor mix, deciding whether (and when) to be in-network/out-of-network/cash pay.
- Managing your staff is key to having the best run, most profitable practice. Some of the things we will cover include human resources policies, compliance, employee training, job descriptions and employee salaries/benefits/bonuses.

Your Instructor, Dr. Weitz
After my anesthesia residency and pain management fellowship at UCSF, I stayed on faculty for 5 years. But between the pay cuts and the high cost of living, it became apparent that something needed to change.
We moved to Louisiana and I joined an anesthesia group that said they needed a pain management specialist. It didn't take me long to figure out that our objectives were not aligned. So I decided to take the leap and start my own practice.
My practice grew to 11 providers. I built a 25,000 sq ft medical office building. And then added multiple services and businesses including a multispecialty ambulatory surgery center, anesthesia company, PT, Imaging Center, psychological services, lab services and more.
Since selling my medical businesses and retiring with 8 figures, I am teaching other physicians how to achieve their own financial success.ENROLL NOW
"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!"

"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!."

"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."
~Allison Wade 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."
~ Steve McDaniel M.D.
"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!"
