Learn How to Build Your Alternative Healthcare Practice

Dr. Smith created Practice Startup Academy to help teach other Alternative Healthcare Practitioners how to succeed. Unfortunately success in practice is not something that you learn in school, it is something you either learn in the trenches or from a mentor.  But once you learn how to be successful in practice, it follows you wherever you go.
