After years of struggling to keep his practice afloat, Dr. James Ochi made the difficult decision to close his doors. Patient health plans simply weren’t covering his business expenses.
"You’re basically paying thousands of dollars every month to see patients," he says. "That was a devastating time for me and my family. It was very humiliating."
But thanks to years of hard work paying off debt (and their house) before this happened, he didn’t have to worry. He was free to take a temporary, lower-paying job to support his family.
"I was willing to do whatever it took to keep us out of debt and to maintain the principles we had always lived by."
