It's that time of year, everyone is vowing to live better! Resolutions always include the predictable "lose weight, eat right" promise. Weight loss physicians also have a new start this time of year as we welcome many new clients into our practices. Often they include friends or family of clients that have been wanting to see what your practice can do for them.
Think of promoting with something new, such as a new addition to an already promising practice like new memberships for your faithful clients. I loved adding a membership to my practice that, for a small monthly amount, these clients could schedule unlimited free "weigh-in" appointments and gain access to certain support services like one counseling session per month. It was perfect for clients that were completing their standardized diet regimen, but were terrified of regaining the weight. They wanted some sort of accountability, but no longer needed a regular program. It's a simple idea, but so well needed...and it keeps your clients close by in case they start to slip! You can restart them on a regimen quickly without the risk of them regaining their weight back before they call you.
Happy 2017! Here's to a fit future for your patients, and your practice!
