What People are Saying ...


When I first met Kelly, my office seemed to be caught in a downward spiral of low production, low collections, low team morale. My schedule was inconsistent, the number of patients on payment plans was growing, and the amount of administrative work was daunting.

It was clear from the first day that Kelly joined our team that she understands effective office management. She recognized the faults in our systems that were labor intensive to monitor and maintain, and presented numerous suggestion to reduce the amount of paperwork and tedious tracking of accounts. She suggested alternative ways to schedule our day to maximize efficiency and utilize each team member to their best ability.

Thanks to Kelly and her hard work we now have a schedule that is profitable and productive with patients who understand the value of their care. I can’t thank her enough for the transformation she created in my office. It feels great to look forward each day to working with a fun, happy, productive, and motivated team.
