"The administrative team at GRMC has relied on TMA Practice Consulting for many years. Some of the key areas in which we have utilized their expertise and experience is in setting up new physician practices, in auditing physician practices, and in providing critical comparative information. We have learned that their outside perspective brings credibility and context in evaluating the complexities of physician practices, and in bringing solutions related to finances or operations.We have heard numerous praises from our physicians who have used their services independently of the hospital, for practice evaluations and office manager recruitment. In this area, the TMA also shines with respect to their professionalism and effectiveness.”
