BigNews.Biz - Jan 05,2011 - AUSTIN, TX (December 30, 2010) – According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are approximately 700,000 physicians in the United States who work in excess of 60 hours per week. While the earning potential is the highest among any profession in the U.S., demand on time and pressure from a host of sources impairs physician’s ability to oversee their personal finances. In response, an elite group of financial advisors is emerging as specialists to the medical community. In recognition of his work with area health care executives and physicians, John Olson, of XYZ Financial Services, has been named a 2010 MD Preferred Service Award recipient.
Each year, US Medical Specialties, Inc., a national medical consulting firm, recognizes excellence in service to the medical community in a number of disciplines including financial advisory services, real estate, insurance and legal services. The goals of the MD Preferred Program for Financial Advisors include identifying, acknowledging and promoting service excellence to the medical community.
The program provides medical professionals with a recognizable national icon that assures specialized services and an understanding of the unique needs of physicians and their families. “Doctors are very busy professionals,” observed Michael O’Malley, Project Manager of MD Preferred Services. “When it comes to finding a service professional that specializes in serving physicians, they appreciate an organization that has done the research for them and has pulled a team together to make their lives easier.”
Every MD Preferred Financial Advisor is a ‘Fee for Service Only’, SEC registered fiduciary that must meet stringent professional and ethical standards to eliminate any potential conflict of interest. Award recipients are listed in an on-line directory available at www.MDPreferredServices.com. In addition to community based service providers, the directory recognizes national organizations that serve the health care industry and support the MD Preferred program. The online resource center is available at no cost to physicians and other medical professionals. MD Preferred also publishes a free monthly E-Newsletter that is distributed to over 26,000 graduating physicians providing them with advice and information compiled and written by MD Preferred Service Award recipients.
"We are extremely proud of this award and look forward to expanding our relationships with medical professionals.', said Christopher P. Van Slyke, CFP a partner in Trovena.
Trovena is one of less than 500 wealth managers nationwide that has received the prestigious MD Preferred Service Award.
