Hello I need some advice as I am at a crossing point in my career. I am currently a PMR pain and I joined an Anesthesia Pain private practice solo practicioner last year. He is getting older so he wants to meet with me and discuss a 2-3 year plan. Right now I have a straight base salary. We are EXTREMELY busy though we do about 20-30 procedures half day in his ASC as well as on clinic days we see about 30+ patients a day (which for me is draining and a lot).
