Running a Podiatry Practices is hard work and difficult. Having resources that can be easily accessed to help you undertake this is key. But where does someone find books on how to run Podiatry Practices and what books do you need? Podiatry Management is not easy and there no good courses that are covered in Podiatry School or business management.
So what do you look for in books in Podiatry Management? Generally you are looking for books that provide you ready to use knowledge on the nuts and bolts of managing a Podiatry Practice. Niche Books can be very helpful such as books on Medicare appeals, Billing and Coding. In some ways you are better off with books that devote themselves to niches as opposed to devoting themselves to every subject under the sun. So here we go. Here is my List of the Top Five Books you need if you are going to run or manage a Podiatry Practice:

Listen no matter how long you are in practice – one week or twenty years, eventually you have to deal with Medicare Denials of Services or Audits.
