Question: I am writing to get assistance with a cost estimate for setting up a family medicine private practice.

Answer: This is a big question and there are a million variables.

You really need to create an estimate based on how you are going to set the practice up and where.

Sit down and write out line items for lease prices, equipment, staff in your area, technology you need, malpractice, phone lines, business cards, marketing, etc.

There is a start-up checklist in our Tools section that will get you going on costs to include.
