Ratings and Reviews

  • T.J. Sanner | Chief Operating Officer, Atlas Physical Therapy, Maryland

    Before finding BCMS I was blissfully unaware regarding compliance. I told myself if I don't know about it and just do the right thing I should be ok right? Wrong. Not knowing the laws and requirements is a big problem and as a small practice owner it is next to impossible to be keyed in on everything. BCMS makes this process about as turn key of a compliance program as possible...

  • Dr. Stacey Raybuck Schatz PT, DPT, MS, OCS | Owner, Professional Physical Therapy, Massachusetts

    BCMS is a practice owners secret weapon. There is no excuse to bury your head in the sand. They hold your hand, give you sound advice and show you what needs to be done and why. Corporations and hospitals may have compliance departments, but we have BCMS… We win!

  • Kelly Sanders, PT, DPT, OCS, ATC President Athlon PT | Avid PT | Central Valley PT Delta PT | Ft. Lowell PT | San Luis Sports Therapy

    Mary and her team have done a fantastic job of keeping us appraised of changes that are vitally important to private practice. We have come to count on SIPA to provide us with accurate information and resources and consider Business & Clinical Management Services an integral part of our external support team.

  • Grace Greyer, RN, MSN, MA | Business Administrator, Georgetown Physical Therapy (TX) (GA)

    We passed two Medicare provider surveys with ease as a result of BCMS's (Mary's) consultation services. Of particular help were the policies and procedures dealing with environmental health and safety (bloodborne pathogens, hazard communication and external emergency/disaster management). Our surveyors were most impressed with their comprehensive but practical nature.

  • Keith Thompson, PT, CSCS | Partner, Advance Rehabilitation (GA)

    In a time when margins are shrinking and regulatory changes confuse even the policy-makers, it helps to get compliance answers from someone who knows Rehab from start to finish. BCMS considers all angles of the business when making compliance recommendations. They have saved me hundreds of hours of non-productive research. BCMS is one of the best investments we have made.

  • Biagio Mazza, PT, MPT, OCS, SCS, COMT, CSCS, NSCA-CPT | Owner, Elite Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy (MO)

    Simply put, Mary has been AWESOME for our practice. Mary did all this without being judgmental or condescending. She walked us through the steps we needed to stay on top of things. I would HIGHLY recommend BCMS. I would go as far as to say our relationship with BCMS was THE most important decision I have made as a private practitioner.

  •   The adage, “If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy,” is a very transferable truism and certainly can apply to working with health care auditors.
