About the Author

photoNapoleon Higgins is a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist whose focus is in treating mental health disorders. He is in private practice in the Houston area. He has started and developed many businesses. His private practice has grown from 1 physician being himself and his mother as his office manager. In the short period of 9 years, he has grown from his private practice to one of the largest group practices in the 4th largest city in the United States. His company, Bay Pointe Behavioral Health Service, Inc. now employs multiple clinicians including psychiatrists, physician extenders, therapists, and supporting staff. He believes that the lack of business acumen is greatly affecting the practice and delivery of health care around the country. It is his hope that the following book will help to alleviate the gap between clinical knowledge and business knowledge that is greatly lacking in the medical field.
