Dr Daniel Danahey: "As the only board-certified Facial Plastic surgeon in our organization of over 500 physicians, I knew I needed an exceptional, self-starting, disciplined, and strategically bright individual to help grow my facial plastics practice within the DuPage Medical Group. I was acutely aware of Elizabeth's previous success in new business ventures and practice development in the aesthetics industry. Accordingly, I knew she would be a perfect fit to help me grow my practice, and bring it to the next level.
Under her management, and by applying her past proven strategy and deep understanding of the medical cosmetic industry, we have seen a phenomenal rate of growth. Prior to her arrival, I had experienced a growth rate of 10 to 15% per year. Within the first six months and through the first year she managed my cosmetic practice, we more than doubled revenue and saw dramatic bottom-line growth. Since then, she continues to drive growth of at least one third or more month-over-month - all while prioritizing the patient experience.
I've been impressed with her success at improving patient satisfaction, increasing departmental efficiency, increasing patient retention, and increasing sales exponentially. This would not be possible if it were not for the personal attributes that she possesses. For example, I have found her extremely well organized, she's a great problem solver, and a tremendous self-starter. Her impact has also been recognized by the executive team.
Although we are a business, we are also in health care. So, to be successful in this arena, one has to have a blend of business acumen and a caring personality. Elizabeth establishes a great rapport with her patients and colleagues in an effortless way. Patients feel very comfortable with her and trust her. The patients and I both appreciate her warm personality and great sense of humor, which also create a comfortable work environment.
I have known Elizabeth professionally approximately six years. Elizabeth graduated from her university magna cum laude and is now pursuing her MBA in Leadership and Change Management, achieving and currently maintaining a 4.0 GPA. She has met with great success at all her endeavors. I feel the best is yet to come for her.
I feel it was an excellent decision to bring Elizabeth on to further develop my practice, and I have been very pleased with her ability to achieve and exceed our objectives. She is not only extremely capable, but is also a delight to work with. Therefore, I highly recommend Elizabeth without hesitation."
Dr Eliza Parker: "Elizabeth reported to me as the Director of Aesthetics for my practice, Cadella Medical Spa & Wellness Center. Elizabeth achieved many things during her time at Cadella, always wearing many hats. She played a pivotal role in the launch and management of the practice, marketing to build our client base, and providing a white-gloved, red-carpet experience for my patients.
Elizabeth was my ‘right-hand-man’ during the launch of my medical spa and wellness center at our first location, and oversaw the acquisition and build-out of my current office. She had the knowledge and ability to successfully juggle multiple objectives while seamlessly taking on the unexpected. She brings strategy and framework to situations where the sometimes ambiguous challenges lie, finding the solutions and the opportunities for growth and improvement.
Elizabeth found, hired, and trained my staff, developing the already professional, talented team into an aesthetic powerhouse. Her wealth of expertise in the medical field is astounding, especially in the physician practice management realm and all things aesthetic.
Elizabeth is well organized and highly motivated. Her highly positive reputation in the aesthetic community was surely earned due to her glass-is-half-full attitude, integrity, and dedication to her work and the patients. She is a great team player and committed manager, and is a pleasure to work with on a daily basis. She treated my practice as if it were her own, demonstrating her alliance to the practice daily. Elizabeth’s consultation on this project was invaluable, I couldn't have done it without her! I trust Elizabeth, and those looking for a value-driven leader won’t find a better match."
Dr Terry L. Donat: "Elizabeth provided our professional medical aesthetician services in our aesthetic medical and aesthetic surgical practice beyond the four years I worked with her. She is a very keen observer and practitioner, who critically determines the needs of her clients in full context for their value in care; not just in providing their needs for the day. She is skilled in managing pre-surgical aesthetic, post-surgical aesthetic and general supportive skin care for clients. She is fantastic with makeup and the aggressive marketing of aesthetic services. If you want a person to tackle a novel problem and pose feasible approaches and solutions, Elizabeth is your thoroughbred medical aesthetician!!"
