Today we are joined by Gregg Friedman, a graduate of Arizona State University. While at ASU, he completed the pre-med requirements while getting a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Gregg likes to explain all available options to patients and to serve them where they want to be served. In this episode, Gregg explains the importance of documentation, yet reveals the unnecessary things that chiropractors are documenting like subjective complaints. Stay tuned to hear Gregg discuss what type of outcome questionnaires you should look for and how to properly use two-week trials.
