Need advice to choose a specific industry or General in Desktop Premier

Can someone give me advice on whether to choose "general business" or "professional services" when setting up my Desktop Premier software?  We own a 5 office physical therapy business.  We outsource our billing of patients/collections, but we do plan to do payroll and pay our bills, enter income and access profit and loss info with QuickBooks with each office set up as a class.  Are there any advantages or disadvantages to choosing the specific industry (professional services) or is better to just choose General? Thanks.

You may choose one of them and change it later easily once you need it. Changing industry does not affect your data but the menu on screen and reporting options.

Services does not have multiple unit of measure, which I doubt you will need, and frankly is poorly implemented anyway.

I would choose services if it were me
