The most popular question that others ask me is, “What is the most common mistake that doctors make when adding weight loss to their practice?”
They dive in and jump right in without a lot of thought, planning, or consideration.
First, you want to find out who in your patient base is a candidate for weight loss.
Who has been dealing with digestive problems?
Maybe they’re diabetic, or have high blood pressure due to them being overweight. Maybe they’re coming to see you because they have low back pain; they have too much in front of them instead of behind them.
Many doctors make these mistakes.
They just go out there and immediately run ads, instead of looking at their patient base and warm audience.
Look at your warm market and start with one or two patients to get the program started. That way, it’s a learning experience, and you don’t feel so overwhelmed.
