Getting Referrals from Doctors with Adult-Focused Private Practitioner Yasmin Rios-Schultz

Getting Referrals from Doctors with Adult-Focused Private Practitioner Yasmin Rios-Schultz

Referrals can be a powerful tool to utilize in your business. By serving your clients well and forming good relationships with others in related fields, you can change the trajectory of your private practice by receiving referrals. 

In today’s episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with Yasmin Rios-Schultz, a Start Your Private Practice student who grew her private practice to full-time and now gets a large number of referrals from doctors. 

Yasmin Rios-Schultz lives in Austin, TX with her husband, son, and dog.  She has been an SLP for 13 years and has owned her adult-focused private practice, Lake Austin Speech Therapy, for 2 years. 

She is a mobile therapist and also provides telehealth for those who are outside of her driving range. She is a 6-time marathoner, and a lover of the outdoors, camping, road trips, and travel. 

She formed her private practice to be independent and in charge of the decision-making for her therapy services. She wanted to decide her own work hours and gain the flexibility for herself and her family that she didn’t previously have when working for another company. 


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • Getting clients through Medicare
  • Tips for connecting with doctors to get referrals
  • What Yasmin’s private practice looks like 
  • How private practices take time to build
  • How her private practice helped Yasmin get Lasik surgery
  • Yasmin’s plans for hiring help so that she can expand her practice
  • The benefits of telehealth


Yasmin is a perfect example of someone who has a lot to offer and physicians in her area are taking note and referring to her. She’s working with her ideal client population on her own terms and filling a need in her community. And guess what? You can do that, too! Just like I helped Yasmin get started, I would love to help you get started too.
