New patients are the bread and butter of any practice, especially new practices. In today’s economy, however, you may be asking yourself how you can grow your practice amidst a decrease in demand or increase in competition. Many plastic surgery and other elective practices pursue new patients through discounts, specials, and other price-reducing strategies. While these approaches may solve the problem in the short term, you should also consider the effects on your reputation, likelihood of repeat patients, and future growth.
