Request for Proposal [RFP]

Generally, Dr. Marcinko screens for products, services or situations where narratives are being mistakenly applied. Out of favor industries are greatly of interest as well as companies with decent free cash flow multiples and manageable debt. Other pleasing attributes include a high-barrier to entry [BTE], a “must-have” rather than “nice-to-have” attitude in the marketplace, and a large potential recurring customer/client profile. Health care ecosystem specificity is a plus.

Dr. Marcinko also provides insight into the areas of Medical Practice Enhancement, Investing, Financial Planning, Asset Allocation, Portfolio Management, Investment Policy Statement [IPS] Analysis and Endowment Fund Management, Succession and Estate Planning, Insurance and Risk Management, Mortgages and Lending, Practice Business Valuations, Human Resources, Negotiations and Employee Benefits. He strives to fill a growing need for medically focused financial or managerial advice that traditional consultants have not been able to provide.

For example, most financial “consultants” either charge high sales commissions, or levy a percentage of fees for managing client assets. And, medical management consultants tend to extend their scope of engagement to tangential areas not originally needed, or wanted. Traditional fee structures create inherent conflicts of interest and significant barriers for an increasing number of time-compressed and economically constrained physicians and dentists, nurses and allied healthcare providers, entrepreneurs, health and insurance plans and/or related executives.

So, please feel free to send in your RFPs, simple [start-up] or complex [matrix unit or mature] business plans, book or white-paper review invitations and/or R&D project ideas for a confidential evaluation. Dr. Marcinko is at your service for independent and unbiased second opinions to the extent possible. The end result is a “no pressure” and “no conflicts-of-interest” experience; working as a fiduciary on your behalf 24/7/365.
