    Sir i Am Saleem from uae.. i have plan to start clinic in this city. But i want to know whats needs and budget of this business. U.A.E in Abu Dhabi

    @Saleem... I am not familiar with the process in Abu Dhabi. I am sure however that you have to hire clinical staff such as physicians, and support staff and pay them what the salary in Abu Dhabi demands. In addition you must get a location to set up the clinic, depending on the services you wish to provide is how big the location will need to be. I am almost certain you will have to register the business with the Abu Dhabi government. If you are interested, my firm can handle the process for you as this is what we specialize in. Even though we are not familiar with the process in Abu Dhabi because it has to do with demand (everyone has just wanted to open in the U.S.) the process for establishing and managing a successful clinic is very similar anywhere you are located. It basically requires a business design and set-up in accordance with the services you wish to provide. I wish you luck with your project and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    I am interested in doing one of two things, either starting a hha/cna REGISTRY or a licensed home care service agency in NY. Can I start as a registry first then progress to an licensed agency; Can I start out providing homemaker/companion services and then progress to include personal care (w/licensing). How is your consultation. Do you offer different rates? Thanks, Michele
