In 2012, I transitioned from Duke University into a new REI private practice. One of the things that I realized was missing when we signed up for medical practice insurance in the private setting was a relationship with risk managers. At Duke, we always had someone who understood the legal implications of communication, new procedures, etc. that we could pick up the phone to discuss the situation to help us avoid legal conundrums. This was not a service that the large medical practice insurance companies seemed to offer. When Dr. Katz came to us, signing up with his organization made sense and provided a sense of security that we would be insured by someone who understood what we did and could help us understand the implications of our actions and our words as we entered unchartered situations. Over the 6 years that we have been with him, we have had many conversations that not only provided piece of mind but helped us optimize relationships that might otherwise have been more challenging. Deciding to partner with Steven Katz was one of the best decisions that we made in setting up our practice.David Walmer M.D., Senior REI, Atlantic Reproductive Specialists
