Founded by Jay Geier, the Scheduling Institute's driving focus is to help doctors turn their practice into a very successful and profitable business by leveraging an asset they already possess — Staff. Jay discovered the Scheduling Institute concept 28 years ago while serving as Marketing Director for a large private practice in Atlanta, Georgia. He spent four years fine-tuning and perfecting the system before fully dedicating himself to sharing it with doctors worldwide.
