Dr. William Donovan, continued; “Although we are pleased with our overall performance, we faced a number of events that adversely affected our operations. One of the major causes of the lower revenues was Hurricane Harvey. This devastated Houston and prevented many patients from getting to our Houston affiliate’s office for examinations and treatments. Most patients spent 2-3 months trying to clean up from the floods. Our office in Houston was closed for 2 full weeks and was only partially open for the next 2 months.”

Results of Operations

For the year ended December 31, 2017 versus 2016:

We recognize revenue by reference to “net revenue,” which is gross amounts billed using CPT codes less account discounts that are expected to result when individual cases are ultimately settled.
