The Asclepius Group – Combining Efforts to Better Serve Medical Professionals

AGThe poet John Donne once wrote “No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main.” In essence, we are all better and more effective when we are a part of something bigger than ourselves. This quote reminds us of a group of professionals with whom we have the pleasure to associate, called the Asclepius Group. We are privileged to participate in this group as we seek to provide the very best service to our healthcare clients.

According to the Asclepius Group’s website, it is composed of “NAPFA advisors who have a significant portion of their practice dedicated to serving the financial advising needs of medical professionals.”  The mission of the group is to “collectively study issues that impact the financial circumstances of medical professionals.”

The Asclepius Group meets throughout the year to share expertise about working with individuals in the medical profession in an effort to help all the members provide tAsclepius Grouphe best possible service to their healthcare clients. Because the group members represent a variety of professional backgrounds, each brings a different and unique perspective to the financial concerns of healthcare providers. Each member of the group has a primary focus in the area of financial planning and advising, however many have work experience in other areas as well, including accounting, law and healthcare professions.

Because of our association with this prestigious group of individuals, our medical clients can be confident that they are receiving the best possible information and financial advice from the Financial Fiduciaries team. And, if we don’t have an answer, we have a network of professionals who can point us in the right direction.
