any suggestions on wether billing the drs a percentage of collections for the month or a flat rate of claims produced out each month is better and more fair?

There is no question that doctors most likely prefer to be billed on a percentage of collections, however the OIG frowns upon it and in some states it's illegal for a provider to enter into a "fee - splitting" arrangement.  There are a LOT of different ways to charge accordingly for the work you do.

I find that most prefer to be charged on a percentage base.  Especially when their average claim is only $50 and the profit margin is minimal.
