Working with Michael was refreshing. Data was on point and his presentations elevated our understanding of the business. After decades of managing our own successful ASC, the insights he provided were unexpected and greatly appreciated. We look forward to the opportunity to work with him and his team in the future.

I have had the privilege to work with Michael, Beata, and Katie on multiple ambulatory projects and can honestly say that I have never met a more deeply talented group of experts in my nearly 30 years of experience. Not only do they understand and adapt to meet whatever challenges are presented, but they do it with an honest, candid, and approachable style, and impeccable character. They aren’t just great strategists and tacticians; they are great people.
