What would you do if you lost your top referral source for the 3RD TIME because of a POPTS practice?

In 2010, Chad Madden PT experienced two therapists leave his private practice to open up their own practice. He had just lost $98,000 in one quarter in his business. He was, in his own words, feeling sorry for himself and playing the victim.

Instead of looking for solutions he was wallowing in his problems.

Then things changed for the better.

Chad went from being a PT victim to a PT all star by following some very simple steps that he is going to share with us today. 

Chad Madden is the owner of Madden Physical Therapy, a thriving private practice in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania despite being out of network and fierce competition from physician-owned physical therapy clinics. Chad and his staff have grown his practice by 600% in the past five years. He sees more than 184 new patients each month at one location.

Cash Therapy Roadmap image

We recently finished the first  Cash Practice Roadmap Pilot Course. It was a huge success largely due to a great group of therapists in the first course. They are all at various stages of starting their own practice. I had therapists from all the way from California to New Mexico to New Jersey. We had a great experience together and I can’t thank them enough for the feedback and hard work they put into the pilot course.  I’ll be launching the full course this summer to help other therapists launch their very own cash practice.

If you’re interested in the next class please email me at and type Cash Practice Roadmap in the subject line. I’ll arrange phone call so I can answer your questions about the next course.
