Testimonials

The physicians at Hypertenison & Kidney Specialists have a goal of providing the best possible, state of the art care to our patients. In the current medical climate, it has become increasingly more difficult and challenging to remain independent and self governed. NPS performed a thorough “Practice Assessment” for our group. They compared data from our practice to benchmark data and made sound recommendations. After the assessment by NPS, we have implemented many of the suggestions which will allow us to remain a viable and independent practice moving forward. I would recommend NPS to any practice that shares our goals of quality patient care and independence.
JAMES A. GROFF, DO, FACOI, Hypertension & Kidney Specialists
Unlike the many standard medical practice management services available, NPS management expertise allows me to continuously improve upon the level of service and care I provide while growing my practice and increasing revenue. Instead of productivity in the form of “smoke and mirrors,” they address the problems directly. I leave every meeting feeling that my medical practice is firmly set on a course for success. NPS was the right choice for me!
