Comments If you are truly qualified to open your own clinic, you'd be wise to at least explore becoming a USPh partner first. You can eliminate all downside risk, eliminate tedious back-office work, and still make great money while being in control of the clinic. Since there is literally NO downside, the biggest issue to consider is "are you qualified?" for this opportunity.
