“Before working with Fortune Management, we went through a number of changes and growing pains within our practice. Thanks to Fortune’s training program, the team now has a cohesiveness never seen before where we work together more effectively and efficiently. With time saving systems in place, our ultimate focus can remain on our patients and allows for the ultimate patient experience; unlike any other veterinary office. In creating the extraordinary practice and extraordinary life, we are able to bring the technology and communication skills home to help strengthen our personal relationships and improve our overall attitude. Our hard work paid off with 18% growth last year!”
