About the author
Dr. Hixson has provided a concise, logical explanation of the forces restricting access to both medical and mental health services in the United States. He clearly explains the factors and thinking that are quickly destroying the patient/provider relationship in all of our communities. A ‘must read’ for all private practitioners of health care today.

… a reflection of the things to come in health care. With all of the changes looming on the horizon, this book is an enlightening must-read for those in private practice.
— Gerald Johnson, PhD, private practice
Endangered Private Practice is a must read for anyone in private practice in the health care field. Having been in practice as a psychotherapist for over 35 years, I have personally experienced the truth of what Ron Hixson has captured in this book. His thorough research in combination with the presentation of bold challenges for the health care provider encourages us to remain true to our calling.
