091 - Paul Thompson Treating Children

Paul Thompson is the owner of three podiatry businesses, Leisure Coast Podiatry, Berry Podiatry and Illawarra Sports Podiatry, which incorporates Synergy Kids Podiatry. 

Paul has a particular interest in treating children and works with specialised Physiotherapists and OT's, which has helped lift his knowledge and enthusiasm for this specific area of podiatry. 

On this episode we discuss:

  • Why he has three podiatry businesses
  • Why treating children is such a rewarding endeavour. 
  • The enjoyment Paul gets from following a child's progress long-term.
  • Why kids are like plasticine
  • The benefits of asking patients the type of treatment they have received from other health professionals and learning from it. 

"Every patient that you see and treat should be considered as part of your CPD. Learn from it"

"Most of us have basic knowledge on how to treat most foot conditions, but sometimes it's about how you treat the patient that makes a big difference."

Final Tip

Podiatry is not an exact science. Don't be afraid to ask questions and try something new. Everything is changeable; every modification is changeable; you just need to have a go.

Podiatry Business Coaching & Mentoring

If you want to own and operate a Thriving Podiatry Business, there are four vital pieces to the business puzzle.  

  • Marketing - You need a well thought out marketing strategy, not just more tactics. 
  • Systems - You need systems that will support your marketing strategy and your team.
  • Team - You need to develop a team culture that makes your work-life balance easier, not harder. 
  • Diary - Your diary needs to be structured in a way that maximises patient numbers and increases daily profits. 

You have two choices: There's the slow approach, where you learn by trial and error and do everything yourself, or you can fast-track your education and business success with one-on-one business coaching and mentoring, or group coaching
