Tina has written over 400 articles on practice management and understands what you envision your practice to be and getting it there can be challenging.
“Tina Del Buono has performed “miracles” or almost miracles for many of our Top Practices members. She uses her performance coaching skills and has taken practices that would’ve been bankrupt in 90 days and turned them around to become very profitable practices. She has worked closely with physicians and their management staff to change a culture of frustration and drama into one of professional high performance. She knows what physicians and office staff need to do to solve their practice management problems and that is why I asked her to lead the Top Practices Virtual Practice Management Institute along with Dr. Peter Wishnie. There is simply no one else who has more experience or knowledge and I’m honored to have her lead our Top Practices staff.” – Rem Jackson, CEO of Top Practices
Tina is now mentoring, coaching, and guiding physicians, and her fellow office managers/administrators and their staff as they learn how to manage a medical practice effectively through the Top Practices Management Programs.
Tina is a Performance Coach. She is a past President and past Scientific Chair of the ASPMA. She currently lectures with the American Academy of Podiatric Practice Management (AAPPM) and is the Scientific Chair for the Western Foot and Ankle Conference assistant programs.
In 2021, she published Truths from the Trenches: The Complete Guide to Creating a High-Performing, Inspired Medical Team, a book that outlines all the details to creating a high-performing, inspired medical team that’s productive and profitable.
