Beginning Billing:
Mori's billing class was really good. She sure knows how to keep you engaged in a seemingly "boring" subject. The class was quite fun! She is truly invested in your success and goes above and beyond. Mike Nam LAc

I took Mori's Billing Seminar in New Haven, CT. It was fantastic. She is dedicated and very educated in billing. The information presented was solid. She is a must have. Kevin J Pinzone, LAc

Thank You for the Great Class yesterday! I feel more confident dealing with insurance companies. now.    Matthew Bryant LAc

Thanks for all the info and help.  As I’m sure you remember, there we were, lingering at the door, an hour and a half after class was supposed to be over, hanging on your every word, hungry for more.  I learned more about insurance billing in four hours than during my entire practice management class.  Nathan Anderson, L.Ac.

Advanced Billing and Both Days
Mori West is amazing! I recommended her courses to anyone looking to learn how to bill insurance (or deepen your skills if you are already doing it)! She is extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and efficient - well worth your time and money! Thank you, Mori!
Andrea Werner LAc

Mori is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in her field, and wants to share everything she knows. She truly cares about her students and absolutely wants the best for them. At no point was she trying to sell her services or maintain secrecy about any information related to her work. I walked out of the class filled with information and inspiration, and, more importantly, with more confidence in my ability to adequately bill insurance and understand the entire process. This course is well worth the price of admission. An added plus is that Mori is extremely charismatic and super funny! I genuinely enjoyed her 8-hour course.  Christina Bird Ward LAc

Mori’s class is invaluable for any Acupuncturist who wants to learn more about insurance billing. Even if you don’t want to learn more because you think that billing is too difficult, her class will likely make you realize that it’s not as complicated as it seems.  Mori is clearly very knowledgeable about the profession and will teach you how to avoid the common mistakes and pitfalls of billing insurance.  She will teach you what you need to know in an organized, concise and comprehensible manner. Sarah Schwab, L.Ac.

Even Professional Billers Take her Classes: Hi Mori, Today's billing class was exceptional! You're an excellent speaker and teacher, all the material was presented with clarity and enthusiasm. I always learn something from you to aid me in my business and came away from your class today with more useful knowledge.
The timing of what you mentioned about Harrington Health was perfect. I've just recently gotten some Northern CA business and I am just beginning to educate myself with health plans specific to that area.
Thanks again for an insightful and enjoyable day.                 Nancy G. Owner, Cardinal Business Services
