  • “It is my pleasure to recommend Howard and the healthcare team at Burr & Forman.  From issues related to medical staff bylaws, through numerous regulatory compliance and certificate-of-need applications, to the successful resolution of the largest Medicare recoupment effort against a private medical practice; Howard has always been a knowledgeable counselor, keen advisor and staunch advocate for the hospitals and medical practices I have managed. 

    Howard’s record of accomplishment is broad and impressive.  He is quick to respond when called.  His advocacy style is reassuring as he blends superior organizational skills, subject matter expertise and a willingness to listen and grasp the full understanding of his client’s needs and objectives.  

    This recommendation is made without reservation because for nineteen years, when my own reputation was at stake, I have introduced Howard to the organizations I manage.  In every case, the organization has benefitted greatly as he has managed to achieve the best outcomes possible.”
