  • “As a wellness practitioner and consultant to other wellness professionals I understand not only the importance of niche services, but also the importance of expertise. Many practitioners do not understand the complexities of regulations and rules that govern their profession, including setting up an entity correctly, partnering with other health care providers (fee splitting no nos) and product sales in clinic and on line. Doesn’t that sound daunting? It is. I highly recommend Michael Cohen and his team of talented experts. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure applies to business just as much as it does health. Don’t be caught in need of correcting a problem, get it right from the start.”
