About Our Consulting Practice

iMBA Coaching, Consultations and Discussion Board Tele Doctor

Finally … telephonic and/or electronic practice management advice for doctors and all modern medical professionals that is:  

  • Objective, affordable, medically focused and personalized
  • Rendered by a pre-screened medical management consultant
  • Offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, by phone or secure e-mail transmission

The iMBA Discussion Forum™ is a physician-to-advisor telephone or e-mail portal that connects independent medical management consultants, with doctors or healthcare executives desiring affordable and unbiased business advice on an as-needed, pay-per-use basis. Medical professionals and healthcare executives can now receive direct access to prescreened iMBA professionals in all areas outlined in our book.

To assist our doctor / healthcare executive members, we can be contracted with per-minute or per-project fees, and contacted by client phone, email or secure instant messaging.

The iMBA Discussion Forum™ is designed to fill a growing need for medically focused financial or managerial advice that traditional consultants have not been able to serve. Most “consultants” either charge high sales commissions, or levy a percentage of fees for gained efficiencies. And, management consultants tend to extend their scope of engagement to tangential areas not originally needed, or wanted. These fee structures have created inherent conflicts of interest and significant barriers for an increasing number of time-compressed and economically constrained physicians or healthcare executives.

Now, with the iMBA Discussion Forum™, all physicians and executive clients can receive unbiased advice and objective business opinions, on their own terms, anytime-anywhere.

The iMBA Discussion Forum™ eliminates conflicts of interest by providing advice on a per-use basis, so you pay only for what you want and need. iMBA does not sell financial or business products. The result is a unique “no pressure”, and “no conflicts-of-interest experience.”

Get started with your consultation, now! Receive only the advice you need and pay for, from a medically focused and qualified doctor-advisor looking after your best interests.

  2. On The Death of Private Medical Practice

    A new survey of doctors predicts the rapid extinction of the private-practice physician. A survey of some 2,400 MDs from around the country found nearly three quarters said they plan to retire, work part-time, stop taking new patients, become an employee, or seek a non-clinical position in the next one to three years.

    But, are these changes really the result of the new law? You decide?

    Fortunately this book and our consulting services can help!
