As a dedicated physician, I have been sculpted by the relentless and sometimes harsh chisel of experience. I have wrestled with the complexities of operating a successful medical practice, and I know I'm not alone. Many of my comrades in medicine are battling the same dragons I've faced and continue to duel daily.

In our fast-paced world, the landscape beneath our feet is in perpetual flux, always morphing and changing, requiring us to constantly adapt and grow. We are expected to deliver the very epitome of care and keep our practices "in the black," navigating the treacherous waters of financial management. These skills are glaringly absent from our medical training, an ominous void that hinders us.

In the face of these challenges, I have found my true mission, my purpose - to serve as a beacon in the murky waters. I strive to bridge the knowledge gap that plagues many of us. I've poured my heart and soul into two seminal works, The Financially Intelligent Physician and Great Care, Every Patient. These are not merely books, but lifelines thrown into the tumultuous sea of healthcare, offering fellow professionals the tools to create the practice they've envisioned.

I am not just an author. I am an advocate, and a mentor, standing on stages both grand and humble at national, regional, and local conferences. I echo the lessons inexplicably absent from our education - lessons that are essential and absolutely critical in the rapidly evolving medical landscape.

I firmly believe that the roadmap to success lies in the intricate nuances that were overlooked in our training. Understanding financial intelligence, wielding the power of leadership, negotiating robust contracts, and designing a practice that leaves patients satisfied and truly delighted are essential elements of a flourishing practice.

My unwavering commitment pledge is to help you find these missing pieces. To illuminate the path, fill in the gaps that were left empty in our training. Let's reclaim our profession and redefine success on our own terms. Let us not just survive but truly thrive in the world of healthcare. Your journey begins here. Will you take the first step with me?

Join the Association for Independent Medicine Today

I have the privilege of serving as the treasurer of this fine organization. We believe that maintaining physician control of healthcare decision-making results in the highest quality of care for patients and most efficient use of healthcare resources.

Formed in 2022, the Association for Independent Medicine was created to bring independent, physician-owned groups together with the goal of remaining independent and pushing back against private equity-owned takeovers. Reach out to myself or visit their website to learn more. If we all work together, we can keep physicians independent.

"We were very fortunate to have Dr. David Norris speak to our Midlands Chapter of the South Carolina Medical Group Management Association. Dr. Norris spoke on Emotional Intelligence in the workplace which was very relevant and useful for our membership. His experience, knowledge, and ability to communicate in an informative manner resulted in an excellent presentation. He serves as an esteemed resource for healthcare leaders attempting to improve their leadership and management abilities. Dr. Norris and his team were easy to communicate with when setting up our virtual program and no issues occurred. I would recommend Dr. Norris as a speaker for any healthcare leadership group meeting or program. Thank you David!"

"Dr. Norris has been game-changing in my life. As a physician-in-training, there is always a level of uncertainty regarding; what I am going to do after I finish my residency or fellowship? Personally, this was happening to me a few months ago. I was not sure what was the best path for me; joining a private oncology practice, stay in the academics or just affiliate to a big hospital. But recently I started the Financial Intelligent Physician course and my objectives changed completely. After learning the principles and fundaments of finances and accounting, methods to protect a medical practice from fraud I decided to open my own private oncology practice and at this very moment, I am working on that. I am building a team focused on the 4Ps principle. I am confident that with the principles I am learning with Dr. Norris and his accessibility to reach him will guide me through this endeavor. Thank you, D.r Norris, for being my mentor. "
