Review:

"Dr. Landholt frames the future of medical practice in surprisingly simple terms. He focuses on the key elements of patient satisfaction, and clearly explains how patient-centered care can be achieved through improving the process of health care delivery." (Donald J. Lloyd, FACMPE)

"Dr. Landholt and The Coker Group present a 'hands on' practical guide to steering a medical practice through the new health care delivery maze . . . enough detail to be helpful, but general enough to fit a variety of practice settings." (Jean Edwards Holt, MD, FACS)

"Dr. Landholt's book should be on the bookshelf of all physicians and administrators in group practice. A very thorough, diagnostic approach to managing an outpatient practice with many practical tools for the physician-administrator team. An excellent look at total office automation with many examples and guidelines to assist the practice." (Leila Haynes, CMA-A, CMPE)
