Setting Goals Beyond Patient Care

“I’ve been a member of PPS for five years and at first, I thought, how is this going to benefit me since I’m not a big company? My initial thoughts changed after being in the Peer2Peer NetWorks program; that was a game changer for me. The program gets you around like-minded people and pushes you to do better. The camaraderie is great and really shows that we are all in this together to make health care better.”

Helping Clients Lead Better Lives

“The environment of my private practice is different than most. With a focus on fitness, our building looks more like a gym and less like a medical space. It has all the trademarks that you would find in a gym like turf areas to exercise on and motivational signs and quotes around the space to help clients get in the right headspace.

I’ve been a member of PPS for almost four years now. I joined to have access to other physical therapists who are walking the same path as I am. PPS provides a breadth of resources and tools that have been invaluable, like the marketing, clerical, and administrative tools. Regardless of whether you want to go into private practice, if you have a side hustle or anything involved in the business of health care, PPS is a great place for a wide variety of resources to help you on your journey.”
