  Image Is Everything: The Power of Branding   
By Steven Visentin, DC
Successful businesses use color and design to attract people to their service. They understand how important image is and hire experts to create an attractive package.

Modern chiropractors operate in a fast-paced, ever-changing world. With recent regulation changes, insurance complexities and business requirements, the precious time and attention of doctors seems to be stretched thinner than perhaps ever before.

How to motivate patients to follow through with your recommendations.
