"From improving our clinical operations to innovations like group visits and advanced access, your ability to match best practices with what we're ready for has truly made a difference in the quality of care that we provide. Your hands-on style, knowledge and skills have also been a great resource for us in building the infrastructure we need for a Patient Centered Medical Home."

"Recently a business owner patient told me "you run a great business." I told her that I owe much of that to Sue Houck of Houck & Associates. Over years of assistance, she has helped our entire staff improve workflows and develop customer service protocols. As a result, 95% of our patients report they would recommend us to a friend or family member. Recent assistance included how to maintain patient satisfaction and programs for patient self-scheduling. I appreciate Sue's national experience and ability to match our needs with trends in healthcare delivery."
