About Michael Z. Metzger, DPM, MBA
Dr. Michael Metzger has been in private practice for nearly 25 years. He founded and operated two successful clinics in North Central Texas. He obtained his MBA emphasizing Healthcare and Practice Administration from the University of Texas at Dallas in May 2000. Michael has written and spoken on a variety of issues including internal and external marketing, marketing, Medicare’s CCI, and is presently authoring a workbook to guide the new practitioner through the maze of opening and running a new practice, which he hopes to publish in early 2002.
After he received his MBA, he recognized that many healthcare organizations fail to apply basic “MBA business principles” to their organizations and practices. One goal of Innovative Healthcare Resources is to educate the practitioner on effective business practices.
In his varied experience he has worked with both large and small organizations, public and private entities and for and not for profit organizations. Thus he feels comfortable and is effective in almost any situation.
He is ever mindful that it is your practice that he is assisting and strives to make it an effective and efficient reflection of you.
