Nava Sarooshi, President of MDP Corporation, lays out a prescription for keeping practice associates engaged and motivated under the constraining circumstances of COVID-19 closures and stay-at-home directives.
Being an independent practice owner is tremendously rewarding but also can be very stressful and requires a lot of hard work. Where many tend to struggle, however, is when it comes to working too much, putting their work before their health and not handling stress properly.
Practitioners are often motivated by the urgency involved and the skill required to deal with the severe medical conditions of their patients. Sadly, as the years pass, the compassion required becomes a burden and the stress and angst that results can be debilitating.
