Client Feedback

Traci Albers

Surgical Management Professionals is truly a unique management company. They not only provide the experience and leadership for your organization, but they also value their relationship with the centers they manage. We are able to receive immediate results and attention to our issues. SMP’s priority is what is in the best interest of the surgery center. SMP provides the full range of services from financial management to continuous quality management to infection control support and everything in between. They have the expertise in multiple areas to support us on a day-to-day basis. The executives that lead SMP are individuals that have actually worked in an ambulatory surgery center or specialty hospital setting; therefore, they understand the issues we face and can provide real-world solutions. In a day when reimbursement is getting tighter and cash flow is becoming more of a challenge, I can continue to rely on SMP’s business office to negotiate the best payer contracts, code claims with accuracy, and collect payments exceeding industry A/R standards. The staff that provide this service to our center are second-to-none.
