My volumes are consistent with those reported here.
The real question for the job market what happens after the back log.
How many patients are not going to the doctor because they are afraid of the virus ?
A lot will depend on how much virus your community sees during the next year.
This is an unknown business risk that will influence hiring in the next 12 months
Got two unsolicited contacts from recruiters for AP/CP jobs today. One required 5 years experience in a college town in IL, the other did not (a small group in "Southern Midwest town").
Maybe case volumes picking up and older partners realize they want to stay home indefinitely?
LA did you bail on your stock market short position or get killed ?
Bailed. But I lost alot...like alot. Of course from March 3rd through April 4th I had made almost a million.
I will have fired more people in the last month than I have hired total in 20 years. Think next the new entity Im doing will axe 17 souls? Not all pathologists, but even the pathologists staying are getting pretty epic short term haircuts BUT I hope I can turn it around for them after we pretty much gut all the expenses.
When they asked what EMR system I would pay for I told them the kind that is 3 inches by 5 inches, thin, white and has lines and goes into a small plastic box. Hahahahahaha.
Low tech is the new tech.
No tech is the best tech.
Now Im seeing people more realistic in when things will "normalize". My city just announced they expected a full recovery in....2025!
I am now back to literally 100% of prior predicted volumes but since the axeman cometh recently, Im beyond swamped doing all the work and cant post up as usual..GL everyone!
Go RURAL GO RURAL DELUXE!
This is not a normal market and hasn't been since 2009.The unelected FED,most powerful institution in the world,has spoken with OUR TAX DOLLARS.The market is creeping back to where it was before the pandemic. Seems crazy to me. Maybe it will be a V shaped recovery. Is Trump that lucky?
Hold it on the 100 trillion dollar bill there is a pic of 3 rocks?
Why the embossed image on the bottom right side look like a penis?!
Is this real?!
You can buy one for around $80 on AMAZON.Eventually someone will have to pay off this deficit.If not tax dollars then massive inflation.Of course,we could always default and turn to the IMF.
