Practice embezzlement is at an all-time high with 3 out of 5 practices falling victim. So, if you own a practice for thirty years, you will encounter some form of employee theft during that time.
Maybe it was something that was said that has caused you to wonder. Maybe you suspect all your patient payments are not being deposited. Maybe you found something and you do not know what to do. That’s where Susan comes in.
What sets my fraud investigations apart?
Susan throws uninformative examination results out the window. You will never just receive a phone call with “Sorry, nothing was found.” Regardless of the findings, you will always receive a full report after an investigation. You will know what was, or was not, found and get the supporting documentation and reports to back it up. This report is detailed and can be provided to law enforcement for prosecution.
Two reports. One investigation.
After meticulously combing through financial information and your systems and procedures, Susan also takes the time to compile a report on suggested internal controls to strengthen your practice. It is important to strengthen systems and procedures to help prevent the same thing from happening again.
“I walk with you to the end.”
Susan works with law enforcement and the judicial system, providing information and explanation as needed, and will also work with you and your attorney to develop any victim statement needed by the court.

Financial Practice Analysis
Has your practice ever had a full financial analysis? Not the IRS, not your CPA, but an entirely unbiased third party review of your financial systems and procedures. If not, now is the time!
Whether you are unsure if you are maximizing your financial systems, about to bring in a new associate, or thinking of selling your practice, a full financial analysis will give you peace of mind. Or maybe you just want assurance that the right systems are in place to help prevent embezzlement in your practice.
A Financial Practice Analysis is a remote process so as not to disturb your practice. It focuses on the aspect of your practice that is not owner controlled. If the practice owner manages the accounts payable (checks and credit card), then it is not necessary to include.
Whats in it for you?
- Compares the practice software with all financial institution records, analyzing patient, insurance, and patient plan payments
- An in-depth analysis of the adjustment reports with the Audit Trail Report
- Examines existing adjustments, whether they are acceptable and appropriate
- Evaluates additional areas recognized as potential breaches of internal controls
- One detailed report
- If embezzlement is detected, the cost of the Financial Practice Analysis rolls into the cost of the Fraud Examination.
A typical analysis takes 3 weeks to complete, dependent upon available necessary documentation. Additionally, a two-hour follow-up phone call with the doctor will address any action plans determined by the review or any questions.
The Financial Practice Analysis requires doctor participation and must be ordered by the doctor.

Have you have been putting off using QuickBooks in your practice?
Would you like to have easy access to your financial reports?
Would you like to understand your financial reports?
Now is the time to get going.
There is a lot of negative talk regarding how professional practices are not accountants and therefore should not do accounting. They are wrong and here is why:
- Practice owners are business owners.
- Practice owners already do most of the accounting (receivables) in their practice software.
- The part of accounting in QuickBooks (payables) is about 15% of the total accounting.
- If you follow Susan’s strategy for using QuickBooks in your practice, it may take up to two hours a week only, though most say it is a little over an hour.
