Serving Medical Professionals

You’ve spent countless hours to build your knowledge, skill and reputation as a doctor. And being a physician can bring great esteem and financial opportunities. But a career in medicine can also bring significant debt, high taxes, big financial risks and limited time to deal with all the complexity. We have the utmost respect for your sacrifice and your role as a physician and caretaker of people’s health. And we believe the right kind of planning can help you enjoy the fruits of your labor and achieve clarity and peace of mind.

Our focus is centered on you. We want to know what’s in your head and your heart as much as what is on your balance sheet. This allows us to deliver planning that’s tailored to your unique needs. With the busy life you lead, we understand that time is precious. We take a holistic view to ensure all areas of planning are considered in a coordinated way. From retirement, investments, tax, insurance and estate plan to student loans, mortgage and spending decisions… we support you so you can focus your time and energy on your career and family with the confidence that your plan is on track.

The Physician’s Conundrum

The practice of medicine is changing as landscapes shift with insurance, ownership, reimbursements, regulation. It’s complex and much of it is not really in your control. We can’t predict how things may continue to change. But we can prepare and plan today to create a future you want for yourself and your family.

We help you formulate a plan that that is built to accomplish your dreams and goals, not to just accumulate financial stuff and not to measure against what your colleagues and friends are doing. More than information, we provide guidance – a financial game plan, in a language you understand, to align your wealth with your values. And we partner with you as the guide for your journey – from medical school to retirement to leaving your legacy.

In our investment advisory work, we serve as fiduciaries, and our planning process is centered around your best interests. Always doing the right thing for our clients is more than a legal standard, it’s core to who we are. We deeply appreciate the trust clients place in us and always do our best to honor that.
