8 Signs of a Great Consultant for Your Aesthetic Practice


As an aesthetic practice manager, owner, or administrator, you understand the significance of making informed decisions to elevate your practice’s success and profitability. When facing the complexities of inventory management, vendor negotiations, staff training and compliance, working with a skilled consultant can be a game-changer. In this blog post, we will explore the fundamental principles that make a great consultant for your aesthetic practice. By identifying these key signs, you can confidently select a consultant who will help you overcome challenges and achieve your practice’s goals.

As you read, you will also encounter some of our client’s experiences on how they found their consultant. This will add real-life insights into the journey of hiring a consultant and reaping its benefits. These testimonials serve as valuable examples of the positive impact a great consultant can have on an aesthetic practice.

1) Industry Experience and Expertise:

One of the most crucial signs of a great consultant for your aesthetic practice, is their industry experience and expertise. A reputable consultant should have a deep understanding of the aesthetic industry, including its trends, challenges and best practices. Look for consultants who have a proven track record of success and have worked with a diverse range of practices. This experience ensures that they can provide relevant insights and tailor strategies to your specific needs.

2) Personalized Client Success Manager:

A great practice management consulting company will assign you a dedicated client success manager who acts as your reliable partner throughout the consultation process. This experienced professional should have a background in the aesthetic industry, making them well-versed in the challenges you face. A personalized client success manager will ensure that you receive customized advice and support tailored to your practice’s unique requirements.

Danielle Oyasu, a nurse practitioner and one of our clients at Shorr Solutions, shared, “I absolutely love working with Tiffany, our dedicated client success manager. She has experience in the business and understands the challenges we face. It’s great to have a strong support system to consult with regularly.

3) Direct Access to Industry Experts:

An excellent consultant will offer direct access to industry experts, including the company’s founder or lead consultant. Having direct communication with these experts allows you to get prompt answers to your questions and make well-informed decisions. Such access ensures that you are receiving guidance from the best in the field, leading to more effective strategies for your practice’s growth.

Unlike other consulting firms, where you might be passed around between different representatives, Shorr Solutions ensures that you always have access to Jay Shorr, our experienced CEO and Founder and practice management expert. This direct line of communication allows you to get expert advice and make decisions without any delays.

Dr. Caroline Vargason, an oculofacial plastic surgeon, emphasized, “Having access to Jay personally is incredibly important. I’ve been in situations where communication was poor and decisions took forever. With Shorr Solutions, I know I can reach out to Jay directly and get the answers I need promptly.”

4) Virtual Executive Management Team:

Look for a consultant who can offer a virtual executive management team approach. This means having a team of experts in practice administration, financial advising, HR and vendor relations who are dedicated to optimizing your practice’s efficiency and profitability. This comprehensive team-based approach ensures that all aspects of your practice are considered, resulting in well-rounded solutions.

Shannon Synoracki, a physician assistant, shared her experience, “Working with Shorr Solutions has made me a better business owner. I’ve gained extensive knowledge and understanding of various aspects of running a practice. It’s like having a team that is truly invested in my practice’s growth and success.”

5) Focus on Business Plan and Feasibility Study:

A reputable consultant will emphasize the importance of a comprehensive business plan and feasibility study. These tools allow them to understand your practice’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. By having a clear roadmap, you can make well-informed decisions that align with your long-term goals.

6) Cost-Saving Strategies:

A great consultant should be skilled in negotiating with third-party vendors and implementing cost-saving strategies. By maximizing savings and optimizing financials, they can offset their own fee, making the investment in their services more than worthwhile.

Our client, Danielle Oyasu, further shared, “Working with Shorr Solutions has saved me so much money and made my practice more profitable. The value is incredible and I can’t recommend it enough.”

7) Transparent and Ethical Practices:

Choose a consultant who operates with transparency and ethical practices. They should be open about their services, fees and potential outcomes. Avoid consultants who promise unrealistic results or use aggressive sales tactics.

At Shorr Solutions, we strive to live by a guiding principle, “Never do anything illegal, unethical, or immoral.”

8) A Focus on Education and Empowerment:

An exceptional consultant will not only provide solutions but also prioritize educating and empowering their clients. They should strive to equip you with the knowledge and tools to make informed decisions independently, fostering long-term success for your practice.


Selecting the right consultant for your aesthetic practice is a transformative decision that can significantly impact your success and growth. By recognizing these eight signs of a great consultant for your aesthetic practice, you can confidently choose a partner who will guide you through challenges, optimize your practice’s performance and help you achieve your goals. Remember to prioritize industry experience, personalized support and a transparent approach to ensure a fruitful and rewarding partnership with your chosen consultant.
