His personal experience regarding building a private medical practice from the ground up, as well as growing and maintaining a thriving private practice, outpatient surgery center and state-of-the-art medical spa, give Rick a very unique perspective that also affords him a sense of empathy and distinctive advantage over many of his competitors. He truly understands the complex and highly-sensitive legal aspects of medical practice marketing, the ethics involved, as well as the expenditures associated with growing and maintaining a comprehensive medical corporation. Rick has a true passion for the healthcare industry, and he truly enjoys working with other medical professionals who share his passions and visions.
