Dr. Alan Rousso speaks to Parker College of Chiropractic students
February 12, 2008 (Dallas, Texas) — Dr. Alan Rousso spoke to Parker College of Chiropractic students about the essential elements of coaching your patients to help them find their own unique answers, make changes, achieve desired health goals, and experience personal fulfillment. Dr. Rousso explained to the students that working in the chiropractic profession places them in the category of being in the people business and because of this they will need to communicate effectively to their patients. “The way you communicate to people is either going to make or break your ability to do well in practice,” said Dr. Rousso. For the past 19 years, Dr. Alan Rousso has personally managed and coached more than 2,000 chiropractic offices, helping chiropractors achieve both personal growth and practice success. Dr. Rousso was a successful practitioner himself before he decided to devote his life to helping his colleagues build the practices of their dreams and the best lifestyle they can imagine. He graduated from New York Chiropractic College (1979) and the City University of New York (BS in Biology, 1976) and is a Professional Certified Coach (International Coaching Federation). He also obtained his CCSP (1982). He advised the students to direct conversations during consultations with patients by asking them questions about their health. He also advised them to stay away from focusing only on the pain as many practices focus on pain and not all around health and feeling well. “If you focus only on the pain when the pain goes away the patient will go away,” said Dr. Rousso. “Dr. Rousso provided advice that I will carry with me throughout my years of practicing,” said Tri-Seven student. To be successful at coaching patients to a lifetime of care Dr. Rousso believes that they must remain confident in themselves. “Have certainty in what you are doing,” said Dr. Rousso. “Have absolutely no doubt whatsoever.”
