      Is there a video that Dr. Brady posted on doing a consultation (not ROF) with a prospective patient?

        I’ve never heard of Bill doing consults. I imagine he’s going to say “Don’t do them.”

        When the patient agrees to come in for the first visit, he is paying for our time, then he gets the history, exam, and ROF with “What to Do” moving forward. Unless he’s paying, he won’t value what we say.

        With that said, I do consults because my practice isn’t as busy as I’d like it to be. But I’m doing way them way less than I used to. When you say, “I don’t do consults” and the patient sees a busy practice, it’s a higher barrier to entry that qualifies the patient to be a high-quality patient who belongs in our practices.

        My consult is less an injury consult and more of a sales conversation based on our practice’s messaging:

        – How long have you had pain (if it’s less than 3-6 months, I tell them to see another doctor)

        – How many doctors have you seen? (if it’s less than 3, I tell them to see another doctor)

        – How intense is the pain? (if it’s less than a 5/10, I tell them to go foam roll or stretch or something, LOL)

        Hope that’s helpful.

          Are you asking about taking a history? Or a full first patient visit with history, evaluation, ROF?

          There’s the 7 first order history and other video which breaks down the ideas.

          From coaching, I can confidently say that this is the majority of the information needed to make an accurate diagnosis. There are other questions that get asked, but are so case by case and specific that a single video could in no way cover what needs to be covered.
