Too many physicians end up with poor contracts and when the job doesn't work out, they end up saddled with heavy costs, burdensome non-compete agreements, and unfair treatment. Spending a few hundred bucks up front to get the contract reviewed is well worth it. Firms listed here are paid advertisers on the site, but have all been vetted by me and your fellow readers.
Contract Negotiation and Review
Physician Agreements Health Law
Physician Agreements Health Law is a law firm focusing on physician employment agreement review and negotiation. Get your agreement reviewed by the attorney who wrote the book on physician employment agreements, Dennis Hursh. (I reviewed the first edition of Hursh’s excellent book here.) Hursh provides a thorough review of the contract and benefits language and a complete review of the financial and lifestyle aspects of the offer using Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) data for a fixed fee (discounted for WCI readers). He produces a letter on his firm’s letterhead to give to your employer. Hursh reviews contracts from all 50 states, and also reviews and negotiates partnership agreements.
