Testimonials


"Anesthesia Business Solutions has been providing billing services for our group since we organized about three years ago. They have done an excellent job in every aspect of our new group start up as well as constant monitoring of our progress relative to income production. Their exceptional service continues and their reporting helps us stay ahead of potential payment problems. We have mostly dealt with Carol Katz and Tony Hollingsworth, who are very competent and enthusiastic about our success, but any employee answering their telephone calls has been extremely adept in attending to our needs.

Submission of insurance claims on behalf of our practice by Anesthesia Business Solutions is done efficiently and in a very timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend this company and their services to any fellow business associates."
