Welcome to CJ Consulting

At CJ Consulting we understand that a great majority of physicians went into private practice to take care of people, exercise their extensive training, and reap the rewards that having their own practice would afford them. Most doctors tell us that they were not prepared for the problems and the stress that accompany the rigors of managing a practice.

CJ Consulting’s focus is to bring the level of a doctor’s business skills up to the level of his or her technical skills. By doing so, we help create practices that are stable, efficient, profitable and organized.
