Time marches on. Sometimes so fast that, before you know it you've become the senior physician looking to hand over the managing partner reins to your younger colleagues. Or the solo physician wondering who will care for patients, when you no longer can.

These are just a few of the many issues senior partners and solo practitioners approach our firm with. If you are 55 or older, there are fewer practice years ahead of you than behind you. It's a prudent time to ask important questions.

Here are five of the most important ones to ask.

This is very disappointing. Physicians are aware that most individuals lose about 10% of mental capacity a decade. Hospitals have PI reviews to watch for unsafe practices so physicians are not flying out there. I just completed recertification in Cardiology in May because I don't want to deal with everyone who never delivered health care decide my future. As for the AMA their participation voids any credibility in the process considering their past performance.

Wall St. Journal has a pay wall. I can't afford to subscribe, so I cannot access the important questions.
