Position:
Medical Director
Phoenix, Arizona
Southwest Human Development/Daniel B. Kessler MD and Associates
Posted: (7/8/2015)
Description:

UNIQUE PRACTICE OPPORTUNITY/LEAVE WINTER BEHIND/GET OUT OF THE INSURANCE TRAP

I am currently in Private Practice in Phoenix, Arizona and I will be retiring in 1 year and looking for someone to replace me in a unique practice opportunity.  I am employed at Southwest Human Development (SWHD), a premier Birth to Five Organization in Phoenix, Arizona.  I perform as their Medical Director for their Children's Developmental Center where we do "transdisciplinary" evaluations for young children seeing kids with delayed development, R/O autism, feeding difficulties, ADHD, etc.  We see families in a well equipped play room after a home visit.  The team consists of myself, a psychologist, speech pathologist, occupational therapist, and as necessary a registered dietician.  We do extended but not overly lengthy evaluations as we see each family as a team.  There are always opportunities to expand this service which has been very well received by the community. 

The other component of this unique opportunity is my private practice in D-B Pediatrics where I see patients (birth to 22 years) for all the usual kinds of things.  I work with a full time bilingual Medical Assistant and up to half time PNP (who has worked with me for 22 years).  We use CHADIS (www.chadis.com) to collect information prior to a family being seen.  This system has worked well for me with modifications made over 25 years.  There is clearly room to grow and modify and add clinical research opportunities.

I do not take insurance (though families can submit our bills for Out of Network benefits to their health insurance) and have developed an excellent reputation and get lots of referrals.  The agency provides me with a beautiful large sunny office, and computer and phone, etc and since we don't do billing that is taken care of. I am happy to provide additional information to the interested and highly competent provider.  While I am not “selling” this practice I am not “giving it away” either.

Considerations:

Southwest Human Development is the premier early childhood organization in Arizona and the Southwestern US.  It has over 50 programs, employs over 800 employees and has a $50 million budget.  The agency is over 25 years old and my practice has been here for 4 years with tremendous opportunity for growth and innovation.
