In addition, our firm is one of the few consulting and seminar firms allowed to teach seminars and receive referrals from The California Medical Association in addition to several local medical societies in California.
This is due to the:

  • Quality of the seminars we present

  • Ethics in business we adhere to for our physician clients

It is a testament to our experience that our consultants are nationally recognized speakers to the medical profession. Please review our seminar sponsor list. Our consultants are dynamic seminar instructors chosen for their ability to communicate knowledge with humor and intelligence, excellent communication and teaching skills and ability to offer practical solutions to practice problems.

Why Hire Us

Our goal is for our consultation fee to pay for itself within one year after consultation. This has been achieved in the vast majority of client consultations. Additional benefits include: reduction of partner conflicts, increased staff morale, greater productivity of physicians and staff, increased gross and net income, greater patient and referral satisfaction and a more pleasant work environment. Fees are based on either a flat fee or hourly basis and where possible, a minimum and maximum fee is quoted. For local consultations, a complimentary meeting is arranged to discuss credentials and to acquaint the physicians with the consultant.
