In the drive to gain every advantage, it’s common for new chiropractors and docs struggling, to start their practice or make the switch to an open concept arrangement.
The assumption is that the best and biggest practices (which are not one in the same) are built on an open floor plan in the check-up area.
Is this true?
Is the open concept practice the best approach to garner practice success?
Is the open concept style even right for you?
On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we give you the pros and cons of the open style practice layout so you can decide if it’s right for you!
Here Is What We Covered
- Open concept can be great, we wouldn’t have it any other way, but that doesn’t mean it’s right for you. There are plenty of successful offices with semi-open and fully closed spaces.
- Why do you want to operate in an open concept practice or change over to one? There’s a misconception that it’s ‘one of those things’ that busy offices do and it’s what makes them busy. Make sure your practice layout matches you and your personality and it’s not just a gimmick you think will short cut your success.
- Pros include: social proof, saves you repeating conversations, enables you to educate all at once, better flow, assuming you’re organized…you can serve higher volumes better, it changes the environment of your office.
- Cons include: it’s a potential disqualifier, patients might not feel like they can tell you uncomfortable things, it lacks privacy.
- How to make the change to open plan if you currently have closed rooms.
