Associate Doctor

New Associate Opportunity

Bellevue Chiropractic Associates has a reputation for clinical excellence and providing effective, ethical chiropractic services for Seattle and Eastside residents. Our office design is purposefully warm, enjoying a professional business-park setting located in a vigorous high tech and high income region. In addition to our hard-earned reputation for providing quality care, our clinic is remarkably well organized, efficient, and profitable due to an experienced and talented professional and administrative staff.

We are looking for an associate who has the potential to become a great doctor. Are you someone who can take advantage of an excellent opportunity to learn and work in an ethical, well-respected clinic that is profitably and efficiently run? We are looking for someone that understands how commitment and hard work will lead to success.

We are committed to developing a long-term relationship through a fair associate business structure. We operate on a collaborative philosophy that results in as few win/lose situations as possible. Our goal is to have an associate grow into a partner with an understanding that right must be earned

In order to get you jump-started we offer case-management training, immediate access to community goodwill, and the security of a well-established clinic that is efficiently managed and has a reasonable overflow of new and established patients. We are prepared to employ you and offer compensation in the form of a salary and other benefits. The salary is intended to taper over time as you steadily increase your own practice revenue and bonus income. In addition to lowering your personal risk exposure by providing the security of income and reduced overhead, you will be exposed to a learning environment that will increase the likelihood of your clinical and business success.

This is an exciting challenge for a new associate with the potential for a very good upside. While there is potential for downside risk, and failure is a possibility, the opportunity for the right person is great. This can be a highly rewarding business opportunity for you. Keep in mind that we intend to provide opportunities for you that lead to a win/win outcome.

FAQ

Whose patients will I be treating and how many hours will I work?
You will be treating your own patients.  We will set approximately 32 patient contact hours per week. You should plan to be at the office during normal business hours. Your final schedule will be set in advance.

Will I be a private contractor or an employee of the clinic?
You would be an employee of the clinic with a starting salary that will taper on a scheduled basis. The percentage compensation is pre-determined and is fair. You will pay your malpractice insurance along with any costs in maintaining your chiropractic license.
How are new patients and regular patients scheduled?
Patients are equally distributed between doctors. New patients with insurance policies (covered only when they receive care by a contracted provider) will go to a contracted chiropractor in the office until you are recognized as a provider by the insurance carriers. In most cases, insurance provider status can be achieved within two to three months. Referrals from long-time professional sources such as MDs and attorneys will be directed to the intended chiropractic physician unless receiving prior approval from the referral source. Otherwise, all overflow new patient referrals will go to the new associates.
What are my responsibilities as a new associate?
You will treat partners’ patients on scheduled days off or if they want to come in and we cannot accommodate them (overflow). However, the revenue these patient services generate goes directly into your “revenue bucket”. In exchange for tangible and intangible benefits you receive from our relationship, we may take up to four weeks of vacation a year. This means the patients you see of the current business partners during that specified vacation time do not go into your production bucket. We will not be treating your patients unless by your request or the patient’s scheduling needs.

When do I get paid?
Paydays are set to be on the same days as the rest of the staff, scheduled for twice monthly.

Can I work at another clinic or job?
No other employment is allowed during the contract term without prior approval. And, yes, there is a non-compete and non-solicit clause in the agreement.
