  • “Your partnership has been a powerful addition to my practice. I’ve seen remarkable improvement with many of my patients, several I had initially planned to start on medication but later ended up not needing it because of your work. Your model works well and I think every pediatrics office in the country needs this kind of support.”

    Clifford Seyler, M.D.
    Tullahoma Pediatrics, Manchester Pediatrics, Royal Pediatrics

  • “I just wanted to write and say how wonderful our partnership with MHC has been. Erin has been great, we've seen tremendous improvement with our patients, and they actually go to their counseling appointments now since it doesn't "feel" like they are going to a therapy center. It has been a real breath of fresh air. Anyways, just wanted to take a second to tell you we appreciate everything you all do.”

    Hunter Butler, M.D.
    Springfield Children’s Clinic

  • “The services you provide and the way you provide them is being proven in the growth. I know it is stressful at times to manage the growing organization, but MHC truly services the forgotten edges of our society. The dignity and humanity with which you do it has value that cannot not be assessed or ever truly appreciated. The individuals and families you impact, however, will never forget and will always pay forward their gratitude to others.”
