Kevin is the BEST!  I’ve been working with him on several quotes.  He is very knowledgeable, professional, and considerate.  In addition, he follows through on commitments in a timely fashion, and answers his phone when I call.  Couldn’t ask for a better rep!"

Office Manager, Klamath Heart Clinic

In the middle of 2015 we made a wholesale change in our independent representation to MedPro Associates. We were quite concerned about a possible drop in business as the baton was getting passed from one group to another. Not only did business not go down, it went up at a faster rate than we ever could have hoped for, and we closed the year with a very strong finish. There has been no letup in 2016 and we are well ahead of plan. MedPro has been a tremendous addition to the Bovie Medical team and are professional, hardworking and a pleasure to work with.”
