BECOME A PROVIDER

HERE ARE SOME COMPELLING FACTS TO CONSIDER WHEN THINKING ABOUT BECOMING A PROVIDER AND HELPING OTHERS

  • Sounds way too good to be true but delivers on its promise 90% of the time.

 

  • Allergies have become one of Arizona's biggest health problems causing substantial symptoms in at least 30% of the population. The synopsis is:  Huge health problem in AZ

 

  • There is a unacceptably high percentage of patients who have mediocre symptom relief with

           standard medications given for allergies, asthma, and eczema  The majority of patients will tell

           you when asked that the antihistamines/nasal sprays provide minimal relief. Asthmatics more

           often than not can discontinue their inhalers. Eczematous lesions melt away rapidly obviating

           the need for cortizone creams. This large pool of  poorly controlled patients that

           all clinics have an abundance of candidates for the allergy drops. Patients symptoms greatly

           improve and the need for expensive medications are eliminated.  The synopsis is:  Present

           treatments work poorly.

 

  • Since 1996, I have sat “ring side” in watching this amazingly effective process dramatically change my patients' lives. I had the priviledge of working with Stuart Agren, MD, one of the early pioneers of the process in the country. I was initially a skeptic as many people are, since it simply sounds “too good to be true”.  In most all cases, it delivers on its promise of rapid symptom relief, without side effects, with a process that takes 20 seconds to administer at home, and is covered by the majority of insurances.

 

  • Not surprisingly, it is the most utilized method of allergy treatment in the world.  Until reimbursement for this process catches up with subcutaneous injections, you probably won't find conventional allergists lining up to switch to the drops.  However, there are numerous ENT specialists in the East Valley who have made the switch including Drs. Gordon Genta and Jeffrey McKenna (see enclosed testimonials), just to name a few.  Johns Hopkins ENT/Allergy group began using the drops a few years ago. One year ago, collaborative studies completed by Duke and Cambridge Universities demonstrated excellent efficacy of the sublingual drops in the desensitization of patients with peanut anaphylaxis.  The process has been taken one step further and is now being used to desensitize individuals to a total of 68 individual foods. After using these drops in my patients for the past year, I would have to say they have worked just as dramatically for foods as the environmental serum has worked for airborne allergies.  

 

  • Instead of referring your patients to Allergists, ENT's, and Pulmonologist, you keep them in house and generate substantial revenues for your practice.   The synopsis is:  Why not keep the revenues in your pocket instead of the subspecialists?

 

Who are the appropriate candidates for this treatment?

 

  • There is a huge population of allergy and asthma patients in primary care practices that receive mediocre symptom relief. This is not through the fault of the providers, but due to the limitations of the medications available.  Think of how many patients are taking Claritin or Zyrtec, along with a cortisone nasal spray and maybe even Singulair and getting only marginal relief. Many asthmatics taking Advair or Symbicort still have to supplement with their rescue inhalers and/or their SVN's.  Rarely, do we send these patients to conventional allergists because we know patients are not likely to want to go through the hassles necessary to provide them with relief. The ease of use and high success rates with the drops make them a great choice in treating these individuals and provides them with a quality of life they never dreamed could be possible.  The synopsis is:  Huge need/demand since nothing else works well


 

Your Financial Risk of the Venture

 

  • None.  There is no outlay of cash from the practice.  So there is no financial risk.  

 

  • I cover my own medical malpractice insurance.

 

  • I provide all necessary supplies, which are very costly.

 

  • I do not require a base salary and get paid only on a percentage of the revenues generated by my work.  

 

  • I am confident that you will find me to be very personable and well skilled in the handling of  your patients. This undoubtedly will help to build your practice through word of mouth referrals.  

 

  • I have a large and loyal population of  primary care and allergy patients extending across the East Valley.  Many of them reside in close proximity to your office and may very well choose to make you their PCP.

 

Revenue Generating Potential

 

  • Cuts in reimbursements for your services from Medicare and other insurances continue with no end in sight.  The substantial profits that you are certain to enjoy with the allergy drops will more than compensate for those losses.

 

  • I have provided a couple of pages which give a running total of the revenues that I have generated at two other offices similar to yours in the East Valley.  As you can see, the numbers are staggering. On page number 1 of the two, I only worked two half days a week seeing only Allergy patients to generate that monthly total.  It should be noted that this was all from a one provider office who saw 30 patients a day. In page number 2 of the two, I worked four full days weekly seeing both Internal Medicine and Allergy patients tor the practice.
