-25% Übercharge rate
-25% faster overheal decay
— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum
The Private Practice is a secondary weapon for the Medic. It was ment to be a February 2012 Weapon of the Month, but due to it not working properly it was removed the next day of its introduction and replaced by the Cauterizer.
Compared to a standard Medigun, it charges its Übercharge slower and its overheal decays faster, but the wearer is granted a significant amount of Übercharge on each assist it does. Its Übercharge grants both mini-crits and a 35% damage resistance to both the wearer and the patient, making this an intermediate between the standard Medigun and the Kritzkrieg.

- As the announcement implied, this weapon is best for Medics who focus on a single target, as the faster overheal decays makes it unwise for buffing multiples allies.
- The slower Übercharge rate coupled with the bonus Übercharge on assists makes it suit better aggresives patient that can afford to decimates enemies.
- Each assist will effectively grants as much Übercharge as 8~16 seconds of continual healing (depending on if the patient is above the 142.5% health treshold).
