November 25, 2016 – Michael Iannotti, MD, is hedging his bets on the future by launching different practice models and catering to distinct groups of patients in an effort to shore up his long-term career results. The Lafayette, Colorado, primary care physician is combining an aesthetics practice, a fee-for-service primary care practice, a direct primary care model and concierge medicine. “Having a blend of income streams is a better way to go than with a single model,” he says. “There’s risk anytime you rely on a single revenue stream. If you are a strictly cash-based practice and the economy tanks, people won’t be able to afford coming to see you and you’ve got a problem.”
