We retained Jay and Mara in 2017 as we were expanding our practice. We wanted advice as we transitioned from 4000 ft.² and 15 employees to 10,000 ft.² and over 30 employees. Jay and Mara did a site visit and they were exceptionally friendly, helpful, and professional! I just re-read, for the fourth or fifth time, the site visit report and I’m amazed at how much of it we implemented and how much it has helped us move forward! We now have a hugely successful medical and cosmetic dermatology practice with 36 employees and we see 125-150 patients per day. Our gross collections and our compensation have both more than doubled! Staff turnover is low and patient/staff satisfaction is high! We love our work, our patients, and our staff! We greatly appreciate the Shorr’s spot-on advice and ideas to get our expansion headed in the right direction!!

Jay and Mara Shorr helped me out when I needed it the most. I would not be where I am today without them. I have seen firsthand how they can help you save millions and make millions of dollars in your practice. Working with Shorr Solutions is one of the best decisions I have made in my practice. Thank you Mara and Jay, you will always have my trust!

This is my first year using Shorr Solutions as consultants. I had one agenda when I hired them in November, but then COVID-19 changed everything, and they were able to rapidly shift priorities. They helped me obtain deferments on some of my laser leases, including from one company that was refusing to defer. They were also instrumental in helping understand, obtain, and get forgiveness on the PPP loan, and other grants from the government. If I didn’t have them, I’m not sure I could have gotten the PPP loan that helped my 16-year-old business survive.

Thank you for making this takeover process 100% better than my last go around. I appreciate every moment you spend with me, and I am so blessed to have made you part of my team.

We appreciate the assistance you both have provided over the past 2 years. When we started our relationship, we asked that we be “taught how to fish” as opposed to being given a fish directly. While we continue to learn and grow, you have certainly accomplished that task… We thank you both for all your assistance and guidance over the past 2 years, and will certainly not hesitate to recommend you both to those in need.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word superlative as an adjective used “to indicate the greatest degree of a particular quality.” When I think of this word, I think of Shorr Solutions. It is my great pleasure to recommend Shorr Solutions. Jay and Mara Shorr have served as my business consultants for over five years and have proven to be invaluable. I first met Jay and Mara at a training course they organized at a national conference. They regularly speak at national and international conferences and write for many prestigious journals. Jay and Mara provide a wealth of insight and knowledge to help with the business and marketing aspects of my medical practice. Jay and Mara taught me things I never learned in medical school, but are critical to running a successful practice, such as how to deal with difficult patients, how to get patients in the door by appropriate marketing, providing financing options for patients, helping with medical waste disposal, providing discounts on conference registration, how to recruit and train exceptional staff, and much more. They provide a variety of services including negotiating the best deals on purchasing and maintaining capital equipment, providing legal advice, preparing an employee handbook, preparing letters for patients, avoiding litigation, applying for financing for medical space, and much more. Overall, they have saved me much more money than I have invested in them. They have undoubtedly been an asset to my practice.

Most consultants only focus on bringing in more revenue, but few pay attention to revenue that is leaking out. Jay and Mara of Shorr Solutions did an excellent job of combing through ways to keep more of what our practice was earning. They more than paid for themselves.

Working with Shorr Solutions has been the best business decision I made. They are a group of professionals characterized by their knowledge and integrity when it comes to the business of healthcare. They are very respectful and protective of their clients, with great negotiation skills. Jay and Mara have put together a team that is instrumental not only in the setting up of a practice but as an ongoing consulting firm, that takes off your shoulders the burdens of negotiating, hiring, firing and providing mentoring, as well as a different perspective on the day to day running of a practice.

Jay and Mara of Shorr Solutions are amazing!!! They are helping me build my business from the ground up, which is no easy task. Not only are they available when I have a question, but they also constantly push me to take the next step forward in a supportive way. They also go the extra mile and a half and they really care about their clients. From the very beginning, they have been super supportive and helpful. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.

I signed the documents for the loan from Frost Bank yesterday. I can start drawing from the funds and depositing! They said that our application was the most organized that they have ever seen and that was the reason that they could turn it around so quickly! Thank you so much! Great job!!!

I have been a client of Shorr Solutions for several years. Jay, Mara and Ana are a pleasure to work with. I feel more like family than a client.

I would best describe it as always having an expert in your corner looking out for your best interest in all dealings small to large. They offer us a sense of ease and confidence to maneuvering the difficult landscape of building a medical business. and their pricing and billing have been extremely transparent and fair. Despite a full list of clients, conferences and invited talks they have always made themselves just an email or phone call away.

Jay and Mara are a dynamic duo. Their understanding of the inner workings of medical practices is second to none. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with others and are willing to help. You will never question their integrity nor intentions as both are pure. I especially love their ability to break down complex inner-office needs into simple, process-driven systems that help practices thrive.

I have worked with Jay and Mara for years. I consider both to be colleagues and friends. Both are the consummate professionals and deliver substantive value. Both go the extra kilometer for their clients. Strike that, the extra mile, and beyond.
Shareholder & Director, Advice Media
Not only are Jay and Mara wonderful people, but are also solely focused on improving their clients lives by making their practices run much smoother and much more profitable. If you are looking to grow your business, you need Jay and Mara on your team. Many of my clients have worked with them for years and they would be my first call if I were opening a practice.
When work begins with Jay and Mara, one promptly observes the experienced, intelligent input that each offers. Nonetheless, what really separates them from others is their integrity. I have known the Shorrs for nearly ten years and “integrity” is what first and last comes to mind.
CEO, Red Spot Interactive
RSI has been supporters of Shorr Solutions for nearly 5 years. Practice administration, human resources, and patient acquisition are always improved with the support of Shorr Solutions. Their advice comes from direct experience running a successful aesthetic practice in a highly competitive market, therefore, the recommendations you receive are objective versus subjective. Most of all, their integrity is unquestionable!

I have known Jay Shorr for a number of years and consider Jay one of the most ethical and honest individuals I have met in my life. I have observed Jay deliver the most informative and impressive practice management presentations of all the large number I have attended in the past. Jay can be firm but most of all can be trusted. I would like him to manage my practice and especially be my neighbor.
Jay Shorr has a wealth of knowledge with practice building and has tremendous insight in the field of Aesthetics. His fierce determination to get the best deal for his client and protect their well-being is an enormous asset to any organization. I have worked with him on multiple deals/projects and witnessed this first hand. He is hard-working, dedicated, and will not rest until the job is completed to his satisfaction.

I think that your company Shorr Solutions is just amazing. I have had many clients, I think that anybody who needs to open up a practice or needs a business plan or needs anything should certainly go to Shorr Solutions, and it’s a pleasure working with both of you.

The webinar went well! Loved everyone’s energy! Jay and Mara, y’all had me laughing so much. You are both truly pros.
Thank you for all the hard work….the turn around in the office, in basically every consideration, has been impressive. Thank you both for helping me gather together a good crew. My team has commented to me at least twice now how much different and better things are in terms of morale, getting projects done, patient flow, and patient volume.
