How We Help Our Clients

Great responsive and knowledgeable team. They did a review of our employee handbook. It was timely and thorough. They made appropriate recommendations and even provided us supporting forms and documentation. I would highly recommend VBA.

Jessica Molina

Thank you to the VBA team for doing such an amazing job with the transition of our practice. We are so thankful that we had you in our court. Every penny spent with VBA was well worth the investment, knowing that they were looking out for our best interests and educating us along the journey. I can’t thank them enough or stop singing their praises.

Dr. Lacroix was a great speaker and so easy to engage with. She is warm and personable yet top notch in her area of expertise and very professional. She gave real life examples to relate the information. She tailors the conversation to meet the needs of the group. She was capable of answering what seemed like any questions with great depth and knowledge. 8 hours of lecture flew by…I would highly recommend her!

I turned to VBA when I was having doctor disputes over contracts. I will never do a contract without them again! Dr. Lacroix not only explains contract terms clearly, but does it in such a way that I can then turn around and explain the contract clearly to my doctors. Since working with VBA, I haven’t had any issues and I feel very comfortable that if any problems arise, I will be in good hands.
