Episode 5
Where Have All the Referrals Gone {Practice Perspective}

Consolidation, as well as COVID, has been one of the biggest disrupters in healthcare for private practices.  Private/Independent practices have to find a way to get bigger or find a niche in order to grow their practice. The consolidation affects the flow of patient referrals a private practice needs to stay in business.

In this episode, host Jennifer Thompson chats with  Dr. Charles Thompson, a practicing independent physician with Vascular Specialist of Central Florida about the state of being a private, independent practice and the challenges they face in today’s healthcare environment.


Tune in to discover:


  • The history of Dr. Thompson’s practice and why they decided to remain independent.
  • What are some of the other benefits as providers and for your patients by being independent?
  • What changes have they noticed in terms of their referral patterns?
  • How they have adapted to these shifts in your referrals.
  • Do they have an opinion on a solution?
