What You Get

More than just a contract review: We take the stress and mystery out of contract reviews, paving a quick and straightforward path to a contract you can be proud of.

Compensation

We do a comprehensive review of your compensation plan in its entirety, so you know exactly what it means for your finances. We will diagnose and discuss your compensation, all bonus schedules or plans, and any additional signing bonuses or stipends to ensure they are in line with regional, state, and even city-specific averages. We give you specific talking points and questions to ask. Since we specialize in this, we are very creative with what you could ask for, and of course ‘how’ you could ask.

Benefits

A full review of all your benefits will be conducted so you know if/how they play a role in the entire picture of compensation and the deal. We will discuss what is and is not negotiable, what questions you need to ask (and ‘how’ to ask them), as well as compare to averages. From time away to CME budgets and physician retirement plans, you will know without a doubt how your benefit plan compares to your peers.

Covenants

Our contract review specialists are responsible for reviewing all restrictive covenants in your contract together with our in-house attorneys. Our specialists will review all termination, malpractice, and restrictive covenants for comparison to market norms in your area (*). We have experience in reviewing agreements in specialties from all 50 states, and familiar with what the market bears in your particular area and specialty.

FAQs

How can I contact you?

You can call 888-574-5526 or email us at [email protected] any time!

Can you help with re-negotiation? I have a job but my contract is up for renewal.

YES. We have a specific package for your needs. We are familiar with your situation and how difficult it can be to discuss these, your requests, and needs with your employer/colleagues/partners. Reach out – we are here to help.

I have a $350 flat rate attorney that can do it. Why not use him/her?

We are glad you are getting it reviewed! Most attorneys want to either charge a flat fee and get you out the door or charge high hourly rates because you are a ‘rich doctor.’ None of this is needed. Contract Diagnostics is not a law firm, and we only do physician employment contract reviews – so we want to serve you the best, so you will return and refer colleagues. In addition, we have numerous datasets on compensation and benefits that law firms simply do not have. In addition, there is never a conflict of interest with your hiring employer – we only work for you, the physician.

Are you a law firm?

Absolutely not – and that is a good thing. We specialize in contract reviews – not legal reviews. We do not take legal cases, spend time in court, nor operate as a law firm. We give ‘deal’ advice and not legal advice so you know you have the best deal for your career/family/finances. Should you need a state-specific attorney we are able to refer you to in-state counsel that can help with your needs.

What is the difference in your firm?

Choosing a firm to review your contract is one of the most important decisions you will make. We offer flat rates, deferred invoicing, numerous data sets, full compensation analysis and more – these are just some of the competitive advantages you will have by utilizing Contract Diagnostics. Maybe one of the most important reasons to use Contract Diagnostics is that reviewing Physician contracts is all we do. Many firms want you in their database to sell you disability insurance or investments. Other firms are affiliated with Physician recruiters. 100% of our business at Contract Diagnostics is physician contract reviews. It’s our sub-specialty!

Do you have a referral program?

Yes! Contract Diagnostics has a very active referral program. Send us your friends/colleagues and we provide gift cards back to you as a ‘thank you’. Please have them input your name when they sign up! For affiliate programs, please email [email protected] for more information on having us work with your physician clients.

What is the cost?

Contract Diagnostics has numerous packages to suit your individual needs and budget, starting at $250. You can review our prices and various packages for contract reviews here. Our prices are very competitive for what you will receive – but may not be the cheapest. Choosing a professional to review your contract should not go to the lowest bidder but to the firm that offers the best value. If you think about how much time and money you have invested in yourself and your training, ensuring the best review that doesn’t miss any details is the most important thing.

How long does the process take?

Our review times vary depending on the time of year. Usually, we try to get all contracts reviewed in 3-4 days. If you need a quicker turn-around time, just call and we will get it worked out. Overnight service and ‘rush fee’ may be available should you need them.

What kind of results with negotiation?

Most of our physicians have been very happy with the results. Individual results can vary and of course there are no guarantees. That being said, from your ‘wish list’ and needs we always get their ‘best and final’ on the table, clarify on numerous items, and pick up on any red flags from those we are discussing your points with. It is often the non-monetary clarification items that have more impact.

I'm currently on a J-1 or H1-B visa. Can you help me?

Absolutely. Contract Diagnostics is familiar with the nuances of Visa deals. Should you need immigration services, we are able to recommend a specialized immigration attorney.

What is your experience?

Contract Diagnostics has years of experience working from all sides of the transaction. 100% of our work is in physician contract reviews. We do not sell insurance, do physician recruiting, or offer investments. We do not take cases, go to court, or sue people/companies. We only do physician contracts. Contact us and we will help with yours.
