What makes this instructor qualified?

Sandra Weitz MD is a double board-certified pain management specialist with 20+ years of experience. She started her own private medical practice and grew it to 11 providers. Dr. Weitz built a 25,000 sq ft medical office, started a multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center and added multiple other related revenue streams. The key to her success? Understanding the business of medicine.

Dr. Weitz’s attitude has always been that a physician can provide superlative care, make lots of money and control their work/life balance. But being a great, empathetic, clinician isn’t enough.

Dr. Weitz is very aware that many physicians are dissatisfied with their employed physician status. And she wondered why more physicians don’t go into private practice.

After speaking with hundreds of physicians, Dr. Weitz realized that fear and lack of knowledge were the driving forces. In 2020, Dr. Weitz began formally advising physicians on how to start, grow and leverage their medical practices through her podcast, courses, The Private Medical Practice Academy Membership, and Facebook community.

Dr. Weitz uses a no nonsense, nuts and bolts approach to teach the business of medicine so that you have a clear step-by-step process for starting your own private medical practice.
