Systems For Success Testimonials
Testimonials from Representatives
"Systems for Success is what every doctor is looking for in their nutritional practice. It shows the doctor how to deal with the staff, the literature, the supplements and most importantly the patient. There is no doubt that when a doctor follows the protocols that Lori has set forth they will be successful in implementing nutrition in their practice. Lori is fantastic and has developed an unbelievable model for success."
Adam Davis, Western New York Nutritional Services
"One of the most important and valuable seminars for my practitioners."
Press Maycock, SP Representative
"Another dynamic seminar - What a tremendous learning opportunity for health care practitioners. You two are an awesome team, and we so appreciate your commitment and passion. We loved the inspiration and can't wait for more of it!"
Sammi Heartl, Event Coordinator - SP of Northern California
"Lori Vashaw has so much to share with our healthcare professionals regarding how to envision, plan and run a truly successful practice. She speaks from real experience running an extraordinary successful practice in Upstate New York. She makes no excuses and lives what she preaches. In the past only those customers willing to travel to Oswego, NY could learn how Lori runs her practice. She is a no nonsense businesswoman and if you want your customers to learn what she does and apply her methods to be successful, then bring Lori to your territory."
Bruce Poritzky, Applied Nutritional Services NY and NJ
"Lori Vashaw provides a comprehensive seminar that tells practitioners what they need to hear, not what they want to hear!
Her seminar will help launch your nutrition based cash practice using simple and easy to follow steps. It is a must see for anyone trying to grow or jump start a nutrtion practice!"
Benjamin Viola, Director, Standard Process Nutrition Northeast, Inc.
"If you want to be successful in practice financially, emotionally and spiritually, this course is a must! Lori gives you all the tools you will need and makes it so simple. You will be inspired and ready to be successful Monday morning. There's no excuse for anything less with this course!
Lisa Lynch, RD Standard Process, SPMetroNY
Cindy Grogan, Standard Process Associate Representative
"I often get asked by practitioners about which seminars are the best to start with. The truth is that all of our seminars are great starting points no matter how long you have been providing nutritional support for your patients/clients. What the real issue seems to be is how to then use that information in an effective manner in your practice. This is where we have had a hole in our educational opportunities. No more."
"Lori Vashaw, BS, CHP runs what is by many accounts the most successful nutrition practice in New York State. The Riverview Wellness Center is located in Oswego, NY and there is currently an 8-10 week waiting list for a new client appointment. Lori wants to help as many people as possible but cannot see them all, and she thinks that eight weeks to wait for an appointment is just too long. So, Lori has developed a seminar to train other Primary Health Care Practitioners to provide the level of care and to realize the level of success that she has. The seminar is called "Systems For Success" and Lori teaches just that – the systems needed to effectively run a practice no matter what modality you use."
"The first class we held at the Riverview Wellness Center in February during a period when Oswego County was getting pounded with lake effect snow. Seven dedicated practitioners and I made our way to Lori's practice and took part in what was the first run of Lori's seminar – one would have thought it was her fiftieth event. Lori conducted the event like a seasoned pro: she presented in a fluid manner that left me with the feeling that anyone really can provide the care that Lori does if they follow her carefully planned out steps."

"I tend to shy away from "practice management" seminars, because there is something about them that feels sleazy and salesy. I was astounded at how different Lori Vashaw is from the rest. Within the first hour of her Systems for Success seminar, I had complete trust that she was not out to get our money, nor was she out to teach us how to get money out of our patients. Her mission is clear - to help us become more efficient at helping others-and it shows in her words, body language and entire presentation. Not only that, but it works! I have so much more energy and excitement for the growth of my practice now. I realized how much time and energy I was wasting on reinventing the wheel with every new patient. I have implemented many of the systems that Lori shared with us, and my practice is absolutely rejuvenated! I'm making effortless connections in the community, and the new patient calls are coming in much greater numbers because I am in a position to receive them. Thank you Lori!"

"Informative and precise."
Shirley Espinoza, DC
"Lori's Systems for Success seminar was what gave me the confidence to step fully into the realm of nutritional consultation in my practice. I always suggested good nutrition, but never with the systems in place to ensure compliance and success with my patients. This is the perfect seminar for the doctor who has the information but struggles to solidify nutrition as a cornerstone of their practice. You will love and be challenged by Lori in this fun and stimulating seminar. It's an absolute must for those incorporating nutrition into your practice."

“I have been thinking about your course almost constantly since we were in Oswego, taking your Systems for Success, three weeks ago. First of all, I have to say, that in my experience of twenty years of continuing education, as a Chiropractor, I have never taken a course where the generous spirit of the lecturer was so evident. While reviews of your course by previous attendees had indicated that yours was outstanding, I was not prepared for the extraordinary depth and thoroughness of the resources you offered. Now that I am back in my office using your material, I am more and more impressed each day. Your procedures and paperwork are elegantly simple. There is no hype, no extraneous posturing, just a carefully wrought, set of administrative tools. Each part of each system that I implement makes my patient visits less stressful and more authoritative. I am happy and feel that I have far more value for my money than I have ever gotten before, and yet, I have only begun to mine the jewels from this seminar.
I am beginning to understand how you can have a three-month waiting list!"
