What Consulting Clients Are Saying About Risa:

About three years ago team morale was at an all time low. Personnel problems were so overwhelming, that I considered bailing out of dentistry even though I was still enjoying my patients and the art and science of my profession. There were so many problems and issues to address, that I decided to seek consultation from Risa Simon. When Risa came on board, she was presented with an absolute hornet's nest of trouble and chaos from my office. Yet, under Risa's expert guidance and tutelage, we cut through all the personnel issues, implemented systems and restored my practice sanity. As a means of sustaining the momentum Risa initiated, we promoted our most capable 'star employee' to take on the role of Practice Administrator; and with her great work and Risa's mentoring, team morale is at an all time high - and the potential of my practice is now limitless!

DDS -Fresno, California

Risa is a great problem solver. She always got to the heart of personnel matters without involving me directly. Risa taught me how to eliminate problems before they occurred and she partnered with me in hiring and firing employees. Many times, she perceived things in potential candidates, which I missed, thus saving me from hiring incompatible employees. She also softened the blow of having to terminate an employee that, although competent, caused staff conflicts. Risa was invaluable in team development, including honing me into a much more effective leader.

- DDS - Phoenix, Arizona

"Risa is amazing! Her wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience is a tremendous asset. She helped us improve efficiency, do the right things faster and better, improve patient relations … and best of all she saved us time and money with the design of our office!"
