Since physicians are the revenue producers of a busy medical practice, there can be a temptation to add doctors to ease patient loads and increase the bottom line. But while bringing on more practitioners can reduce workloads and create economies of scale, it shouldn't be a snap decision. Many factors come into play when adding personnel -- especially those who might ultimately have an ownership stake in the practice.
