    Thanx Jarod! This cash-based model really MAKES SENSE for russian PTs.

    I LOVED listening to this podcast. As someone who created solely cash-based, single-provider PT business with hour long 1:1 treatments, I agree with many of points you made. I have also been able to focus much attention on preventative physical therapy. Thanks for bringing light to this topic and hopefully more patient awareness to the advantages to such clinics.
