Laura Schindler, PT, DPT

Founder / Co-Owner, Advanced Physical Therapy Solutions

Partnering with 8150 Advisors was hands down one of the best decisions I have made in my career as a practice owner. Within one year, Steve and his colleagues helped my business partner and I create an exit strategy for the majority owner while improving leadership stability with the addition of a minority partner, create a Practice Liaison position from within, minimize labor costs and reduce front office redundancies, improve visits and revenue per new patient, engage staff with transparent understanding of key performance indicators, and improve profit margin from 5% to 16%. 

Robbie is an outstanding resource for optimizing charge diversity and intake efficiency. Got rules questions? Robbie has answers! She is a top of game resource for all things related to rules and operational efficiency.

Emily and Madison helped create a practice liaison position from within with a solid blueprint of how to build upon our current referral sources and cultivate new referral relations in our community and surrounding areas. 

Rachel has created visual dashboards for each KPI that look great and are easy for me and the staff to quickly see performance efficiencies. Since implementing these dashboards, our clinical staff engagement in performance monitoring has improved 100-fold. 

Steve calls the plays, but he has an amazing team of assistants. Steve's on the sidelines calling the plays, Robbie's in the press box making sure we're playing by the rules. Emily and Madison make sure that the stadium is full, and Rachel has the stats - right down to the number of bagels the team had for breakfast. He's a bit like Lombardi - where winning isn't everything - it's the only thing!  

Jeff Woodrich, PT

CEO / Partner, Buffalo Rehab Group Physical Therapy

Taking your practice from a vision to an executable plan requires multiple skill sets, financial and compliance knowledge, and loads of experience.  Steve, Robbie and Rachel bring all of this to you with a common thread of purposeful teaching and coaching so you learn the “how” and “why” behind it so those difficult decisions you had last month now are handled efficiently with reasoned surety.  Steve and his team will not only bring your vision to its best reality but even more importantly they are elevating our profession as whole with the confidence of independence practices.

Luke Buffum, PT, MPT

Owner, Trinity Wellness Center

The 8150 team has provided essential tools and support to transform our practice. Robbie, Rachel, and Steve have a wealth of expertise that can assist the practice from staff training on compliance and charge capture to weekly clinic dashboards and budgets. They have come alongside me and re-energized us as a team. I only wish that I had begun working with them early in our practice. Despite an unprecedented crisis with COVID-19 our business has never been stronger. Our cash flow position is better than it has ever been in 18 years of business and we are consistently seeing rewards from our labor. Most importantly, weekly meetings have established accountability that forces a clinician first type owner like me to work on the business every week and hold myself accountable to the numbers and driving the practice forward long term.

Kathy Blair, PT, DPT, OCS

CEO / Owner, Wind City Physical Therapy

Over the past 2 years, we have worked with 8150 Advisors in many areas. Sharing their knowledge in clinic development helped us open a new office in another state. During a clinic acquisition we were able to learn how to accurately value a clinic, how to make our current clinics more profitable, and make our clinics more appealing to a potential buyer. Our leaders are stronger and more focused with the guidance we have received. This has allowed us to increase our profitability even during COVID.

Debra and Ted Layne

Founding Partners, North Boulder PT and Layne PT

We had 5 busy clinics, a great reputation, and declining profits. Steve helped us increase productivity and profits. We successfully implemented data driven reports and steadily improved the value of our practice. After we were approached by buyers who were a great cultural fit, Steve role in negotiating the practice value and keeping the process moving was invaluable. Working with Steve and 8150 Advisors was one of our smartest business decisions. 

Aaron Williams, DPT, PT

CEO / Owner, OSR Physical Therapy

Steve and the team at 8150 Advisors have been a huge resource for us over the past 2 years. They took us through a comprehensive consulting process from evaluation of our current scene, to developing a plan to help us improve in all major areas of marketing and patient acquisition, billing and collections, and overall operations. We went through a strategic planning phase, then developed programs and action steps that ultimately helped to create a more profitable and solid business platform. We are close to doubling our profit margin since working with 8150 Advisors. I would highly recommend them to any owner who is looking to take their practice to the next level!

Lance Owens, PT

Former Partner, SSI Physical Therapy / Director of Therapy, Greer Memorial Hospital

I worked with Steve and his team opening 3 physical therapy clinics from the ground up and could not have been more pleased with the support, guidance, encouragement and advice that I received.  He and his team made things practical and understandable setting us up for immediate success.  They guided me and my staff through every aspect of starting a new clinic and helped us to grow and prosper over our first 2 years in business.  As a former private practice owner and 2007 SC small business of the year winner, I cannot recommend Steve and his team more as a consultant in the business of rehab and physical therapy.


Founding Partner, Lincoln Orthopedic Physical Therapy

Periodically, we have had a consultant in addition to our CPA evaluate our practice and make recommendations. Our most recent and by far most effective consultation has come from 8150 advisers’ Steve Stalzer. His experience selling and buying PT clinics also gave him great insights to our situation. His personality of humility, but wise makes him excellent to work with. His fees are fair and reasonable compared to others we have used. When incorporating his recommendations our profit line increased, from 14% to 20%. Over the years we have used several consultants, but I would highly recommend Steve over all we have worked with.
