Want to build strong referral relationships with medical professionals? The key is offering them something of value.
A few therapists at my clinic have been focusing on networking with Doctor’s offices as potential referral sources. Through my 10 years in private practice, I’ve wasted a lot of time visiting medical practices with little result. However, during that time I found a few doctors or health practitioners who have consistently referred to me so I put together an training and presented it at our staff meeting yesterday. I thought that some of you might appreciate some tips on how I’ve built relationships of trust with medical practices who have referred patients for mental health or relationship therapy.
