re: Anyone with experience in Physician (specialized) recruiting? - YipSkiddlyDooo
You got to give us a specialty. Ortho vs derm vs cards vs optho vs podiatry (newer to health systems but relevant) vs urology vs etc...those starting numbers can vary widely. Not only that, once I've hit an RVU value in line with my base, what are you paying me per RVU? And at any point do I go to a...

re: Anyone with experience in Physician (specialized) recruiting? - YipSkiddlyDooo
"Those things" you mentioned that should make you competitive are standard across the board. I think the person who said your pay isn't as good as you think it is, is probably right. Everyone is spot on about location. If you aren't getting interest then your location probably isn't that des...

re: Best Fort Worth neighborhoods - YipSkiddlyDooo
Or go the other direction from Lewisville and look into Trophy Club. Northwest ISD has some great schools and facilities. You almost can't go wrong with the northern suburbs stretching from Ft Worth to Dallas. I mean people who know the area wouldn't have issues living in...Keller, trophy club, ...

[quote]I'm seeing a lot of Keller responses. We're trying to keep it under $325k, because the kids will be in private school. It sucks that we could easily afford more if not for that.[/quote] Unless you are living in Fort Worth or certain parts of Dallas, why are you sending your kid to private ...

re: Best Fort Worth neighborhoods - YipSkiddlyDooo
If you listen to the folks telling you to live in Keller, just make sure you don't have to commute to Fort Worth for work for at least 2-3 years (if that stretch of 35 is done on time). It will take you an hour to get home from work trying to go North on 35 from the downtown area. Your price ran...

re: Question for Docs/Surgeons/ARNPs - YipSkiddlyDooo
[quote]that definitely depends on the state laws and the particular group. The PAs and NPs in our group do the exact same thing as well as bill the exact same[/quote] I stand corrected. Sorry to the OP, in FL your wife is no more valuable than a PA. Go ahead and down vote this one too because you...

re: Question for Docs/Surgeons/ARNPs - YipSkiddlyDooo
Base + production bonus is normal. No way I'm paying your wife hourly. I want to get through as many patients as I need to and go home and I'd like my employees to have the same attitude. Profit sharing/production incentives do wonders for efficiency. Not sure what you guys expect an NP or PA to...

re: Transgender boy wins controversial girls state title - YipSkiddlyDooo
Yeah this is the UILs fault not the girl-boy's. Leave it to public educators and administrators to create a sweeping rule, and not be able to use common sense when necessary to grant some sort of waiver. ...

re: Subaru Outback vs. Toyota 4Runner - Anyone here ever compare these two? - YipSkiddlyDooo
If you foresee the need to do "any heavy pulling," you should probably get a real truck and not a 4Runner or an Outback. If you are simply using the car to get from point A to point B in any weather condition and/or mountain terrain, get the Outback. If you want better fuel economy and a higher safe...

[quote]they spend a healthy amount of a very small GDP on defense. [/quote] Less than 2% isn't a "healthy amount" To other posters, the white thing is a cop out, but there certainly is a "culture" aspect to education. Meaning, as a society they place more importance on it, they actually care. ...
