I assist with marketing my wife’s cognitive therapy practice, but watching Groupon and others continue to offer deals in licensed medical areas is like doing 65 MPH (ten above the limit) on the highway and seeing 18 consecutive cars blow by you at 90 MPH plus. You are tempted to hit the gas but know if you follow the pack you’ll probably be the one bagged.
Today I got:
Zoom Teeth Whitening or Complete Dental-Implant Procedure with X-rays and Porcelain Crown (Up to 84% Off)
It’s tempting to fall in behind these medical practitioners on behalf of my wife’s business and hit the gas. But I’m not risking my wife’s NY State Psychologist license just to craft some cool Groupon deal (like a dating or relationship power session).
Groupon seems to me to clearly be fee splitting and in NY state that’s a no-no for both the practitioner and the fee recipient.
Exasperating. I with it would get resolved via a clarification in law or a legal challenge.
