Working with a medical accounting firm will assure the financial health of your medical practice.
But when you’re first starting out, how are you supposed to find the right accountant for you?
With thousands of medical accounting firms to choose from, a quick search online is sure to overwhelm you with endless choices.
Here is how to find a great medical accounting firm without the headache:
Start by opening your search to accounting firms based in other cities, or even other countries.
While it may sound counterintuitive, by searching outside of your local market you’re likely to find firms with more expertise and more competitive prices.
Remember that an accounting firm can assist your practice from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Independent firms with low overhead will be able to pass cost savings on to you.
Read online reviews and talk to current customers of the accounting firm. It may be difficult to get an unbiased opinion from a competing physician in your local market, so approach customers in different cities to ask how they like the accounting firm.
Be sure to ask about reliability, accuracy, and experience serving medical practices like yours.
Don’t be afraid to negotiate rates. If you’re startinga private practice, it may be beneficial to work with a small medical accounting firm known for its personalized attention and payment flexibility.
