Interview with Dr Varesh Patel, Primary Care Physician, Advance Family Practice
What initially attracted you to work with AIMA?
We had been working with a Florida based billing company for several years and weren’t happy with the level of service. The communication wasn’t good enough, and it was time for a change. A colleague recommended speaking with Aaron Liston at AIMA. Instantly I could tell Aaron was an active listener. He spent a whole day in the practice with us, learning about our business and the daily challenges we face. He met all of our team, talking through their frustrations and hopes for the future. I felt reassured that AIMA would be the perfect partners for us.
What factors have kept you working with AIMA for the past four years?
AIMA has helped us to increase our revenue by 17%. The impact they have had on our practice is significant. We are markedly more efficient in all areas of the business. With their help and support, we work smarter, not harder.
The consistency of service and communication has been fundamental to our relationship from day one.
What have been the highlights of the last four years of working together?
Our scheduled weekly catch-up is excellent. It is an appointment that I never miss, no matter what. Our dedicated AIMA team update us on the figures, collection rates and any potential issues. I have absolute confidence in their abilities.
