Have you witnessed a time when you industry reversed course on something important? We’d love to hear about it, because when these U-Turns are covered up we lose out on our ability to better evaluate the current direction of our industries.
I started Concierge Orthopedics in 2016 to give patients one-on-one care without the restrictions of insurance. The more I told fellow physical therapists about the business model, the more interested they became.
