01:30 PM - 05:30 PMConsultation and Examination in 100 Visit Per Day Practice By Larry Montgomery, DC

Break is at the discretion of the speaker.
The best patients are referred patients. While there is a great amount of hype around various marketing platforms, a referral produces a better patient than Facebook or any other advertising medium. Therefore, every office procedure should be designed for two major purposes: to diagnose and present the best treatment plan for each patient and to create in-office referrals for continued practice growth. Dr. Montgomery presents TBCE compliant procedures which are guided by diagnostic excellence and synchronized in an extremely efficient manner. This saves the patient and doctor time, allowing for practice growth.
