Short Takes On Straine — Erin Pate

Published on May 6, 2015

Erin-Pate“I feel that it is necessary to share the success that my doctor has had with Straine Consulting (who signed up February 2015) after leaving his office yesterday.  I realized that it was the first time that I had ever seen this doctor in good spirits and optimistic about his practice. This doctor is 52, has a wife, 4 children, enjoys a nice life style and admits to being a terrible “business man” with no savings plan.  He had been through 3 other consulting companies in the past and said that he can’t risk throwing more money away to see no results.  At this point, he was talking about just selling his practice and going to work for someone else’s practice. I begged him to bring his whole team to the Straine seminar last year and please talk to Straine before throwing everything away.  Long story short – the whole team was on board, they signed up and now they are already up 23% on collections and doubled their patient reappointing.  The doctor made a point to pull me aside to let me know how much he appreciates the support from Straine and Henry Schein, which he had never experienced before with any other company.  I believe it all goes back to understanding our customers from the start and customizing the strategies based on their goals and what they feel comfortable with in order for them to not get frustrated/overwhelmed too quickly and give up.  I think he’s going to be a Straine lifer and I’m sure he would be happy to speak to any of your doctors as a reference.  Dan & Kerry – you guys rock!” ~ Erin Pate
