Pinky is a very knowledgeable consultant for pain management billing and coding. She is very
professional in her area of expertise. She is very dependable and highly professional. I have
spoken with many people recently who “claim” to be knowledgeable in this field, only to have
been given the “run around” on numerous occasions. The field of Pain Management Billing is
relatively complicated for medical practice offices who specialize in Interventional Pain
Management. If anyone is in need of pain management medical practice billing and coding
consultant, I highly recommend Pinky for all your billing and coding questions. She is very
upfront when it comes to compliancy. She constantly recommends strict compliancy – Ms. Faye
C., Medical Practice Office and ASC Owner, Michigan

Almost two years ago I found your site in my initial studies to determine if I wanted to go ahead
and pursue this “late” in life desire to to learn billing/coding. At that time, I did email you.
Today, I returned to your site once again and have been feasting on your articles. I stand in
awe of your experience and credentials. This business is not for the “faint-of-heart” to be sure!
I’m a senior oldster, who just received her CPC-A certification status in November and currently
working for my DIL who is a 17 year veteran in medical billing. I’m so fortunate to be starting
from the bottom.
However, at this stage in life, don’t have a whole lot of years left to compile years of experience,
and would like to know how to find a niche from which to excel! Right now we’re billing remotely
for a pain-management specialist, and feel it would be best to concentrate on learning to help
this doctor get the best revenue for his services rendered, especially in the areas of myo-blok
and botox injections for pain. Just trying to fine-tune my study and networking skills as there is
soooo much out there!
Your site has been so helpful, and I just wish I could shadow you for a day, or longer!
I love your passion for what you do!!! It’s contagious! – Sincerely, Sue, CPC-A Everett, WA

I’m just returning to college after a 30 year hiatus and from a successfull music teaching career.
I’m at the age where I just wanted to do something different and do some life-changing events
have become very interested in the administrative medical community. The coding process has
fascinated me! IF I can take little black dots on a piece of paper and transfer them into
meaningful music, hopefully I can do the same thing with the coding language and facilitate
maximum payment for my (hopefully) future employer. Your credentials are impressive and the
fact that you want to be a blessing and help to others speaks for itself. Thank you for creating
such a site, and I’m pleased to avail myself to your wonderful abundant resources.- Sue,
