Dr. Brent Lacey Bio:

My name is Brent Lacey. I’m a gastroenterologist with a passion for financial management and career coaching. As a fellow physician, I understand how overwhelming it can be to step out of clinical training and into a career, and I have seen firsthand the lack of education on how to run a practice and manage finances.

Through planning, hard work, and sacrifice, my wife and I were able to pay off all of our student loans before finishing fellowship, and we got a big head start on our retirement savings. Because we were debt-free, we were in a financial position for her to choose to stop working and stay home with our two amazing boys.

Most physicians enter their profession with large amounts of personal debt. Beyond that – they begin working with little to no knowledge of how to actually run a practice. 

As a physician, I think you should be able to help your patients and do what you love without being stressed by all the other obligations that come with managing your medical practice.

That’s why I started “The Scope of Practice.” My goal is to help you gain the knowledge you need to run your business successfully and manage your personal finances with expertise.
