The use of diagrams, tables and, importantly, worked examples of equations and accounting processes improves clarity and communicates concepts well. (...) This guide promotes and illustrates the positive impact that efficient practice management can have. (...) The guide is a firm example of concise good avice and experience being imparted. The ideas are extremely soundly based, and I believe this is an excellent reference for any practice manager, for any practice contemplating employing a practice manager, and for any vet contemplating practice ownership. - Colin Whiting, Veterinary Times, May 2009
As the title suggests, this is a book for practice managers, by practice managers. This is the second edition, updating the original, and has an additional chapter ‘aimed at helping the newly appointed manager through their first months in veterinary practice’. The contents are described clearly for each chapter with helpful page references, which makes for quick and easy location of the requisite information. The content is relevant and useful, and should be of benefit to anyone involved in practice management.
