How to manage your office staff!
Well, that is not an easy question to answer and each situation is different. TO be honest, most docs need to be their own office manager. Many docs want to give up their staff management as soon as possible and hire an office manager. If you are doing less than 1 million a year gross, you are the office manger. Sorry to tell you, that is the way it goes, that is the deal. You cant afford a great manager and at that size you should be in charge of everything. only one boss. Office manager creates issues. Staff will argue, resent each other. ITs not easy, but guess what, your under a million your the office manager. Sorry!!
