After 10 years in private clinical practice, Dr. Milne combined his extensive medical and business experience to found Gateway Billing Services (GBS) in 2013, as a service to our own orthopaedic practice, surgery centers, and imaging center. Over the last 9 years, he assembled a national level team of professionals to bring all areas of expertise to GBS in order to build a strong foundation to help other physician practices for the long term. He recognizes the importance of financial efficiencies in the revenue cycle for each practice. With Dr. Milne’s personal involvement, GBS has an excellent understanding of the unique opportunities and challenges physicians and organizations face as “healthcare delivery” and RCM continue to rapidly evolve.
In 2014, after 12 months spent establishing and optimizing GBS for our affiliated businesses, we began offering our expertise and services to outside client practices. We now serve orthopaedic practices, ASCs, plastic surgery groups and anesthesia groups as clients, and we helped establish a de novo multi-location physical therapy practice through startup advising and RCM services.
Dr. Milne is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon and is fellowship trained in orthopaedic sports medicine from the Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Vail, Colorado.
