The Private Practice Section of the American Physical Therapy Association publishes a national magazine. The May 2018 issue featured a Member Spotlight on our very own Dr. Nat Christadoss and here are some excerpts.
Years in practice: 7
What do you like most about your job? The satisfaction of knowing that I’m providing our community the best health care option there is out there and enhancing their lives.
What do you like least about your job? Third-party payers, their rates, and their obstacles.
What is the most important lesson you’ve learned? We all only have a limited amount of time on this earth, so live today like there is no tomorrow.
What is something unique about you that your fellow colleagues would like to know? My wife, Michelle, and I were featured on House Hunters in 2006 when we purchased our first home!
Describe your essential business philosophy: “Work hard, play hard. Keep partying like it’s your job” I believe that everyone does this in various ways (traveling, family time, friends, sports/recreational activities, hobbies, etc.). It’s important as entrepreneurs to rejuvenate ourselves occasionally to allow us to perform at our best. My wife and I learned this when visiting Ernest Hemingway’s home in Key West, Florida. He would write in the morning and fish in the afternoon.
How do you measure your success? My grandfather (an entrepreneur) told me when I was young that a true business man can be anywhere in the world and still operate a successful business. I measure success when I am able to take a vacation while the practice continues to operate in a smooth manner. It’s a pretty cool feeling to be across the world and still make money!
