Will I ever have more than 100 Botox Patients per month?

Growth of my Modesto Botox practice

There’s a nifty feature in Allergan’s Brilliant Distinctions program which allows one to track data – such as how many patients have seen you for Botox within a certain period of time.   I decided to look at these numbers monthly.  So far, I’ve been able to extract data starting with January 2011.  Numbers before that don’t exist because we weren’t busy users of Allergan’s Brilliant Distinctions at the time.  We are currently happy users of Allergan’s Brilliant Distinctions program with about 850 different patients enrolled in the program.

Regarding breaking 100 for Botox patients per month

Well, this hasn’t happened yet.  I got close in June, 2014.  I reached 97 Botox patients for this one month.  However, I continue to improve.  I also know that quality trumps quantity most times.  However, I also do know that experience matters and is based on repetition and seeing many different situations.

Here’s that graphic which shows a representation of my Botox growth:

Botox Statistics Update:

  • For the month of July 2014, I saw 95 patients.  Still not quite at 100 Botox patients yet per month.
  • Visit my Modesto Botox homepage for more updates.
  • Vacations, work in Los Angeles, Acupuncuture activies, and operating days are factors which take away from this Botox Statistic.
  • Another update, in October 2014, I saw over 120 patients that month.  So, getting over the 100 patients per month? – done!

Botox, Veins, and Acupuncture: How my time is broken up in the office

Office time is divided up among three main procedures:  Botox, Veins, and Acupuncture

I had a chance to do some data analysis from January 1, 2014 to June 30, 2014.  This is the first half of 2014.  I get the question from time to time regarding what part of practice involves Botox or Acupuncture or Veins?

I’m happy to report the results.  Basically it says that Botox is the biggest chunk of the office practice coming in at 47%, and Acupuncture is a close second at 45%.  Veins occupies 8% of the practice.

What about Surgeries?

That wasn’t included here.  It would be harder for me to figure out surgery vs. these office based procedures because the time required for surgery is usually much longer.  These numbers here (and percentages) are based on the total number of patients coming in for these procedures.  It is not based on time spent.  It is just based on “patient load.”

So here’s the graphic that shows the division of office based procedures:
