The FastStart program seemed like the best way to obtain professional guidance in opening a private practice as a cold start. I initially was looking at opening by myself, then partnered with Dr. Tiffany Gates. The Williams Group has guided us on this journey from the start and it has been one of the best decisions we have made to continue our partnership with the Williams Group. The Williams group is friendly, knowledgeable, and of great value to our practice. We foresee continuing our relationship with the Williams Group due to its value and positive impact on how we run our practice.

As a cold start in 2020, we needed guidance. You don't know what you don't know, so it's best to have mentorship to lessen the chance of trial and error. The FastStart program set us up for success. The forecasting spreadsheets and monthly meetings helped us set goals and work to achieve them. Our growth has been greater than predicted. Now in our 4th year in practice, and we are seeing 15%+ growth from the previous year. Williams Group and our consultant Sheila have been an excellent sounding board for our practice. With two owners, we sometimes need a tie breaker to finalize an important decision.

I opened my practice in 2019 as a cold start after working as an associate in another practice for 16 years. While I was confident in my clinical skills, I knew that I needed guidance when it came to the business side. I was very unsure of how or where to start when it came to developing the business side of a practice. I knew I needed a consultant and with Williams Group serving many practices in the Midwest, I felt confident in every conversation I had with the team at WG and knew they would be a good partner. The FastStart program was the best investment I made and it has paid for itself as my practice continues to grow year over year. I have continued my relationship with my consultant, Sheila, through monthly meetings to review the health of my business by looking a various indices using the amazing forecasting and tracking spreadsheets designed by Williams Group. I can't imagine NOT using Williams Group, honestly. I have a very "well oiled machine" and I love going to work every day without the ongoing stressors that I hear about from my other colleagues. It has been nice to just have a consistent resource for answers to my questions as I navigate business ownership and solo practice.
