  1. On-site practice evaluation
    Ion this approach, lore will come to your office to review your practice. This includes an evaluation of paperwork (electronic or otherwise), a review of the general look and feel of the practice, and an examination of the structural aspects (e.g., bathrooms, entry way, waiting area).
  2. Online practice evaluation
    This generally includes everything listed in the on-site evaluation, however it is conducted by tele-conferencing.
