"I decided in 2002 to move from a hospital based interventional pain practice to an office based or surgery center that I would own. Once I made that decision I needed to figure out how to accomplish it. I know pain medicine, not local, state, and federal requirements, nor am I a financial analyst. I also did not know if it was financially feasible to do what I wanted to do. I had heard Amy at a conference and contacted her for advice. I supplied her with my practice demographics, and she and Bill Lindeman put together a financial plan with projections showing that my plan was feasible (which was needed for the local bank and SBA). Amy does not offer a turnkey operation. She told me what I needed to do, and how to do it, but did not do it for me. That worked great; I was looking for guidance, not a business partner. There are a number of hurdles to opening a surgery center: Life Safety Inspection, State inspection, Medicare certification, and some review body accreditation (AAAHC, or JCAHO). Following her guidance we successfully cleared all of these hurdles. She also is a wealth of information on who to contact for medical equipment and supplies, and how to properly bill (what’s a grouper?). Finally, I have asked for advice on multiple topics since meeting her, and she has been free with her advice and direction (who should I contact when I received a review from Medicare? David Vaughn, Esq., What’s the going salary for a P.A.? 85K., Contacts with other directors of nursing for networking? Supplied).

I have the satisfaction and headaches of running my own practice the way I want with the people I have hired. It’s the best the decision I’ve made. And working with Amy is a large part of the success I’ve had. If anyone would want to contact me about Amy, or starting an ASC, please feel free."

"We've just finished working with Amy as we conceived, built, and have started running our endoscopic ASC in Southeastern PA. She made the whole process much smoother than we know it would have been otherwise, and kept us on track with documentation during this complicated process. Most importantly, she handled all our contracting with insurers, and let us concentrate on our practice. She is incredibly knowledgeable in this field and a pleasure to work with! We recommend her enthusiastically."
