Really nice presentation Monday night. I have recommended at least 5 colleagues to join PEP. I think you are doing an awesome job and have a tangible, practical and spot on vision.

I was the lucky winner and received a one-on-one call with Cindy. I learned more from Cindy in one hour than any Webinar I have ever attended. From evaluating my web site, to discussing marketing strategies both internal and external, to discussing protocols on ESWT. I was able to bring new ideas and personally improve the way I saw patients the following day.
