What better way to magnify one's impact on a national level than to share best practices with other practices around the country? With this mission, Dr. Mike Tankersley can assist your practice in implementing Lean Six-Sigma methods in all areas of your practice.
After a 22 year career as an Air Force clinical and academic allergist/immunologist, 18 months in a large 11 provider metropolitan allergy practice, and 2 years in a University allergy/immunology practice, Dr. Tankersley embarked upon starting his own solo allergy practice in January 2018. Equipped with an MBA from the Physician Executive MBA program from the University of Tennessee, he purposefully chose to run every facet of his practice in-house to master each aspect of the clinic. His goal was simple: to run the most efficient, highest quality practice in the nation providing the full scope of allergy/immunology care. After receiving numerous requests from allergists around the nation to answer questions and assist in starting and running their own practices, his passion for sharing best practices and practice management strategies with other US allergists/immunologists led him in 2021 to start his own consulting firm within The Tankersley Clinic, PLLC. He is a frequent speaker on a national level on practice management topics for the practicing allergist and serves on the practice management committees for his national organizations.
