007 Direct Primary Care with Dr. Penni Vachon

In this episode of the NP Business Matters podcast, I’m interviewing nurse practitioner Dr. Penni Vashon.  She has been a NPBO™ member for a number of years, and over that time, I’ve watched her take her practice from a holistic ortho practice, to a successful direct pay practice model.

I’m often questioned about this model of practice, particularly from those who want to get started fast and not deal with the wait of credentialing, insurance, etc. The thing that NPs (and others!) need to consider is this practice model is slower to grow that an insurance based practice.

There is a lot that goes into it. Penni and I talk about how she did the research, marketing and how to grow this type of practice even further. 

You’ll hear what spurred her on, some of the challenges she has had, as well as the wins.

  1. Did you sign a collaborate agreement with an MD?

    Where do I find information on having a pharmacy in the office.

    Loved the Podcast!

  2. Thank you Dr. Penni for sharing this. Thank you Ms. Barbara for making this possible. I hope one day I will regain my full joy of offering quality, unhurried care to my patients. It seems the only way I will get this fulfillment is be one day a business owner. I want to continue being passionate in what I do.
