BOOKS:

Baum, Neil and Henkel, Gretchen.  Marketing Your Clinical Practice.  Gaithersburg, MD: Aspen Publishers Inc., 2000.  An interesting book on marketing a sub-specialty practice, but applicable to primary care as well.

Burgos, Marilyn, et al. Medical Billing and and Coding Demystified.  New York, NY: McGraw Hill, 2007.  Very basic starter book.

Capko, Judy.  Secrets of the Best Run Practices.  Phoenix, MD: Greenbranch Publishing, 2006.  Good tips, occasionally presents physicians as obstructionist lone rangers.

Dahl, Owen. Think Business! Medical Practice Quality, Efficiency, Profits.  Phoenix, MD: Greenbranch Publishing, 2007.  Overall,  good explanations on the financial management of a practice, but the example of a shampoo company misses the mark.

Gerber, Michael. The E Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About it.  New York, NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995.  A classic.  Much better than The E Myth Physician.

Marcinko, David (ed). The Business of Medical Practice.  (Second Edition).  New York NY: Springer Publishing Company Inc., 2004.  In depth analysis of the finances of a medical practice.  Probably more than you will need to know, but the chapters on cash flow are priceless.

O’berry, Denise.  Small Business Cash Flow.  Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley and Sons, 2007.  A simple book, but explains cash flow projections and why it is so important.

Zaslove, Marshall.  The Successful Physician.  Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett Publishers, 1998.  A great book to help you become more efficient and enjoy practice more.
