New Seminar Rewards Program: Based on the suggestions of many of our doctor clients who like to reward referring doctors, we are modifying our award policy for doctors who have attended several of our seminars.
If you have attended three seminars in the last five years we are offering a completely free seminar when bringing a brand new paying doctor attendee to the course. This can amount to over $1,000 depending on the seminar.
For doctors who haven't attended as often, our $100 gift for both the referring and new doctor when attending a seminar together still applies.
“Thank you for a great course, excellent presentation of the material and at a great location! (One of the few places today where you really get what was advertised. As always, concise and informative. Brandon takes a very complicated subject and brings it down to a level we can understand it, and consistently be able to use the information when we transitioned the practice.” Dr. Peter McDonald, Christiansburg, VA
“I don’t have a vocabulary deep enough or rich enough to express my sincere appreciation for your work with me throughout the process from evaluation to sale, your exemplary and professional advice, and for the precision of the instruments that ultimately transferred ownership of my practice to my partner without a single change requested by my partner’s advisors. In reality, I am not at all surprised. Your firm has supported my practice, my family and me for nearly 25 years and whatever success we enjoy is due in no small measure to the stellar quality of the service we have received from you and your colleagues.” Dr. Leo C. Sinna, Forest Lake, MN
“The content of this past years Newsletter was some of the best ever and very informative. Keep up the good work. The content of your Las Vegas seminar was one of the best I have ever heard” Dr. John R. Thomas, Florence, AL
“I have subscribed for many years; still consider it to be my favorite read! Thank you! Keep all topics coming.” Dr. Magnus Wilson, Ann Arbor, MI
