Mike has worked in multiple areas of the substance abuse industry over the last five years, primarily in management positions. After excelling in the admissions department, he filled a role of Patient Financial Advocate for a large nationwide treatment center. After posting consecutive years of upwards of $1.5 million from his individual collection efforts, he was sought after to develop a Patient Finance Department for a well-renowned treatment center where he established the role of Director of Client Accounts. Immediately, Mike increased revenues of patient responsibility for this center, consistently collecting six figures monthly.
It became apparent that the majority of treatment centers nationwide were neglecting this crucial revenue stream due to a lack of fully understanding how to approach and communicate the required finances with patients and families. This led Mike to form Patient Advocacy Services, or PAS, allowing facilities to trust in his experience and seasoned team to drive this much-needed revenue stream for their programs. In his free time, Mike enjoys the company of his two dogs Layla and Kash. Mike also enjoys the gym, playing baseball, golfing, and traveling the world.
