Meet the Money Doctors

We've assembled a volunteer panel of qualified CPAs that have attained the Personal Financial Specialists (PFS) credential for comprehensive financial planning to act as Money Doctors and answer questions from consumers regarding their financial planning issues. The program is offered as a public service and is designed to help and protect consumers by providing guidance on basic financial planning issues.

We specialize in helping clients position themselves to protect against inflation should America’s debt bubble pop. We have developed a six step process we call The Personal Financial Protection NavigatorTM: 1) We sit with clients and discover their goals; 2) We analyze client’s investments to determine how sensitive they are to inflation; 3) We prepare a written report to help each client understand their risks and potential to be impacted by inflation; 4) We invest client assets in a manner that seeks to protect them and help them thrive should an inflationary environment arise; 5) We monitor client investments and meet with them quarterly to keep them on course: 6) We periodically rebalance client investments, and advise them regarding changes to their saving, spending and other actions that are necessary to stay on course and increase their chances of achieving their goals.
