Starting a medical practice from scratch was never supposed to be easy. When my husband and I started our medical clinic, I never dreamed of the problems we would face – insurance denials, audits, accounting nightmares, hiring and firing staff, training staff, endless paperwork, EMR, government regulations. Not to mention all the drama. It was an adventure that soon turned into a nightmare.
Fast forward to today, our medical practice is now a success. We have implemented systems and protocols that have changed the way our practice runs. I never really thought much about it until I started visiting medical practices and realized how much practitioners are struggling. They needed help, and I knew what to do. Thus, Burkman Consulting in Ohio was formed in 2014.
I’m Holly Burkman, and I’m the consultant behind Burkman Consulting. I stand out from the rest because of my dedication to build a medical practice from the ground up. I have been the medical assistant, the biller, the front desk person, and the practice manager. In a nutshell, I have done it all. I heard the complaints of the staff. I heard the worries from my husband about his practice.
At the time, my ability to buy groceries and pay the mortgage was totally dependent on what happened in the office. I had skin in the game. My choices were to rise above the issues and find solutions or go down with the practice. I chose to fix it.
This experience led to a growth of passion in the consulting field. I hold numerous degrees and certificates that give me the credibility to help practices. However, it is the years of experience that allow me to offer personalized solutions.
