“In the Art of Medical Leadership, Suzan and Scott have provided a blueprint for transforming a medical office into a mission/vision driven high performing team.In the Art of Medical Leadership, Suzan and Scott have provided a blueprint for transforming a medical office into a mission/vision driven high performing team. I know from experience that the information is powerful when effectively applied, having been part of a company that had the wisdom to hire Suzan Oran as a consultant in 1989. Through effective implementation of the knowledge contained in this book, we became a high performing company where people loved to work. We contracted with hospitals to run their emergency departments. We grew from 4 contracts in 1 city to 22 contracts in 7 states before we sold to a national contract management group. You will get a new sense of what is possible for your practice by reading this book. My personal opinion is you will want Suzan, or someone she recommends, to accelerate transforming your practice using these principles.” David Pillow, MD Medical Director Emergency Department, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, Dallas, TX Past president Texas College of Emergency Physicians

This book provides a clear path to an efficient and effective practice by recognizing and reconciling the role of the physician as the practice leader and the staff as engaged team members. Such a highly developed team, led by the physician is well suited to focus on and address the needs of patients in a well-coordinated fashion.
