Building a Specialty Practice with Dr. Ricardo Komotar

On January 23rd, 2023 we launched our first lecture for our live webinar series dedicated to IIH

Dr. Ricardo Komotar presented a masterclass on how to build a specialty practice in medicine. This lecture is directed toward any one who is starting their medical practice regardless if it is in a private or institutional setting. It is also geared towards providers who feel they are not reaching their full potential and growth in their area of medicine. We also appreciated that a majority of his key take-away points can apply to anyone who wants to be successful in their career.

Here is a brief summary of his 1-hour lecture:

  • The 3 A’s of a successful practice are: Availability, Affability, and Ability. This means that you must be available to your colleagues via cell phone and available to patients via email. Carry yourself in a way that is approachable, affable so referring physicians and staff feel comfortable reaching out to you. Being the best at your trade -ability- is what decreases your complication rates and inturn increases patient and provider satisfaction. All together you will have a majority of the tools you need to kickstart a thriving medical practice.
  • In regards to research, strive to be a leader, “create the data, don’t wait for the data.” If you hold a special interest in your field, begin building a database by searching for patients with this disease process. Go into the community and form relationships with those who are affected and those who treat this condition. Create a personal webpage to show your interest and with time, patients will come to your office seeking your expertise.
  • Communication is key. Keep your referring doctor in the loop at all times. A simple text of “patient had surgery today, did well, follow up in your office?” can build the bridge of future referrals with that group.

We look forwarding to seeing you at our next lecture on February 6th at 8:30 pm EST.
