Brian Torchin learned the hard way about the problems of running a medical office. As a physician of chiropractic practice, he discovered how staff turnover and the sudden loss of key people could damage his ability to help his patients and therefore limited his income. He had to learn for himself how to screen and interview people. He had to learn the correct personnel practices to institute. He had to discover how to find, train and retain qualified, competent employees.
However, as a busy chiropractor looking for just the staff his own office needed, he was limited in what he could do. He realized the ideal would be to have a list of qualified prospects he could call on when the need arose. However, he could not ask such people to just sit around waiting for his call. But what if he represented a large number of doctors, clinics, podiatrists, dentists, hospitals and chiropractors that might need qualified medical staff at a moment’s notice? Such a service would help both the medical practices needing new employees and the qualified, trained people seeking positions. It would also help their patients by minimizing service limitations caused by the loss of certain employees. He learned more about helping other medical professionals by working for Project Management, Inc for seven years as Director of Medical Marketing.
That’s why Torchin founded Health Care Recruitment Counselors, LLC in 2009, and serves as its president. He lives in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, but has opened business offices in Delaware and Florida, and recently expanded its services to Europe and Asia. Torchin keeps active writing blog posts to educate the medical field on many staffing related issues.
These articles cover a wide range of medical practice-related issues, revealing Torchin’s many areas of experience and expertise. Subjects including how to market a medical practice, a guide to handling toxic employees, the interview questions to ask prospective employees and how doctors can avoid burnout. These articles run on the company’s blog and on Torchin’s pages on LinkedIn and Google+ to reach and help as many people as possible.
Torchin graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from the University of Delaware. He attended New York Chiropractic College, getting that degree in 1995.
