Being a sole practitioner for 17 years with multiple locations in different cities was a wonderful opportunity and experience for me. I absolutely loved every minute of it. During those 17 years, I thought I had seen everything, and overcome pretty much every challenge imaginable, but who could have imagined COVID-19 and the economic struggles we are all facing in 2020?
Having DCA as a business partner during this unprecedented tragedy has provided a wealth of support, expertise and team work I could never have experienced as a sole practitioner. During this difficult time, DCA has shown tremendous support to staff, has leveraged powerful supply chain support, answered every call and offered the depth of experience only a seasoned DSO can offer.
Myself and my entire team deeply appreciate all DCA has done and continues to do as we all work to come out of this struggle together. It is a pleasure to work with the professionals at all levels of DCA and we note the sincere and genuine leadership. I am happy to have somewhere to turn for solutions I could not possibly offer on my own as a single proprietor.
