What Our Clients Say
As a military dentist who was diving into the business of private practice, I did not have much knowledge of the day to day responsibilities or how to deal with insurances. Malika and her staff were there to guide me through the hard times and whenever I needed them. It meant a lot to me to know that I could always have someone to call when I needed it most. Malika always had the answer or would find the answers I needed. I would not have a functioning practice without her. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Malika for over 5 years. I continue to be impressed by her level of professionalism, knowledge, and motivation to do the best she can for her clients. She has helped me implement training, policies, and structure in my practices; the things that I thought I was doing so well. It was so shocking to know how little I knew about my own business. She put order in my business and helped me hire the right people who are well trained and dedicated.
She is honest and loyal and I could not have found a better consultant anywhere in this country to accomplish what she has done for me. She reviews my monthly reports to make sure the employees are doing their job as well as monitors the system to prevent embezzlement. With her watching the books, I can sleep better at night. There are so many facets to her knowledge and the way she helps me that I would have to write a book to cover it all. Many thanks to her. She is truly one in a million.

I worked with Zar for insurance credentialing for my new office. They did a fabulous job! They explained the process and set expectations clearly so there were no surprises. They were also very responsive by phone and email. They did a wonderful job and answered all my questions thoroughly and also provided valuable advice during the process to help my make appropriate decisions when choosing specific agreements with different insurance companies. I couldn't be happier with the service.

I cannot express how valuable the information , strategies, and knowledge that Malika Azargoon has been providing to me over the past 10 years. All of her knowledge comes from being in the trenches with insurance companies, staff issues, and doctor challenges. She has seen and experienced what has worked and what doesn’t work. Knowing what not to do is probably more important than knowing what to do and she has this down. If you need professional guidance through any situation you must choose Malika. She is battle-tested!!!!
