I've watched a lot of online CE dealing with practice management, but Dr. Rasner's course, The Thriving Fee for Service Practice, is one of the best. There is a lot of pearls in this 2 hour segment and I find all of them very easy to understand, as well as something that I can implement. Hopefully, I can be as successful as Dr. Rasner, and if you are reading this Dr. Rasner, I would love to see your office in NJ if you don't mind. I hope to pick your brain while I am there too. -Rich
