Advantages of Smaller Physician Practice

Patrick Dougherty

Big isn’t necessarily better, especially when it comes to delivering quality patient care. Researchers have found that smaller practices delivering more personalized patient care, had lower rates of preventable hospital admissions, possibly due to the fact that patients often have an easier time booking an appointment with a smaller practice, as well as better physician-patient relationships. These in turn may lead to keeping patients healthier by detecting potential conditions before they result in a hospital admission.
