What You get

Underline

Compensation

We do a comprehensive review of your compensation plan in its entirety, so you know exactly what it means for your finances. We will diagnose and discuss your compensation, all bonus schedules or plans, and any additional signing bonuses or stipends to ensure they are in line with regional, state, and even city-specific averages. We give you specific talking points and questions to ask. Since we specialize in this, we are very creative with what you could ask for, and of course ‘how’ you could ask.

Benefits

A full review of all your benefits will be conducted so you know if how they play a role in the entire picture of compensation and the deal. We will discuss what is and is not negotiable, what questions you need to ask (and ‘how’ to ask them), as well as compare to averages. From time away to CME budgets and physician retirement plans you will know without a doubt how your benefit plan compares to your peers.

Covenants

Our contract review specialists are responsible for reviewing all restrictive covenants in your contract together with our in-house attorneys. Our specialists will review all termination, malpractice, and restrictive covenants for comparison to market norms in your area (*). We have experience in reviewing agreements in specialties from all 50 states, and familiar with what the market bears in your particular area and specialty.

* Should you need a state-specific attorney we are able to refer you to in-state counsel that can help with your needs for items such as enforceability of certain terms and conditions, etc., in your state.

Why Choose Us?

Underline

We Know Your Situation As Physician And Your Contract Expectations.

We Are Not A Law Firm But A Consulting Company Who Specialize 100% in Physician Contract Review

Unlike other firms who also do contract reviews, it is the ONLY thing we do. We DO NOT sell you disability insurance or financial products / investments. We DO NOT have a recruiting division, nor do we sell our compensation data to employers or private equity firms (although they do ask!). We only look out for your employment contract – it’s our Sub-Specialty!

We Are Experienced In Every Physician Specialty In All 50 States

We have done Physician Contract Review since 2011, for every specialty, in ALL 50 States, from Nurse Practitioners and CRNA’s to the most highly sub-specialized physician. We are truly focused on you as the provider and understand ALL the variations in your particular market.

Flat-Fee Service & Flex-Pay Option

Since our start, we have been offering our service based on a flat fee and the option for FlexPay by request from physicians negotiating their contracts. FlexPay allows you to make interest-free payments over time. You can pay for your package for up to 10 months, interest-free. No hooks.

We Coach You Through The Negotiation

We provide you with ongoing support and personalized coaching on how to best negotiate your contract, in a style that fits your personality. Part-time Pediatrician in your first agreement? 20-year Cardiothoracic Surgeon on to your 4th program creation? We know your situation and how to customize our process to YOU. We truly have your back.

We ONLY Want To Help With Your Contract Review

While many companies out there do contract reviews, they also want to sell disability and life insurance, investments, or even physician recruiting services. Contract reviews may be the “entryway” into their system to sell you more products. It’s like a Trojan Horse. We don’t shy away from our focus – 100% physician contract reviews.

Convenience

We have a simple and secure online sign-up that can be done via mobile or anywhere you are. We have reviewed times open on most days from 6:30 am – 8:00 pm; we even work weekends for you.

We understand you and your needs during this important process.
