Taking the BizQuiz? This is the answer to question 4 of "What can a manager do for you?"
Although a practice manager will take away a lot of the headaches involved in running the practice day-to-day, you should still keep certain decisions for yourself. For example, Dr. Carol McKee from Southpointe Veterinary Hospital in Allen Park, Mich., is implementing the practice's move to a paperless system, and she organizes client handouts in the practice software to easily print for exam room use. She also still handles equipment purchases. "I had a hard time giving up management duties," she says. Her practice manager, Joyce Blair, has taken the onerous management duties from Dr. McKee and left her the gems.
