What Our Clients Are Saying
One of my best decisions in the last two years has been to choose PriMed consulting to be my malpractice insurance agency. I have been so grateful for their outstanding attention to all details regarding my Ob/Gyn malpractice insurance and for always showing so much concern for any questions i have regarding coverage options or risk management issues. They negotiated a fair premium on my behalf! PriMed manages my malpractice insurance so I can completely focus on practicing medicine. I give my highest recommendation to PriMed Consulting for any physician seeking to change or improve their malpractice insurance coverage.
BRIAN PARK, MD
Over more than a decade, I have worked directly or indirectly with Prem Belani and his staff at PriMed. I have always been satisfied with their diligence and support. Prem is a source of timely data and wise, creative advice and he and his staff are always advocating for the health care provider in the current morass of the medico-legal world. He leaves no stone unturned and has always been ready to provide information and intervention on a moment's notice. He is dedicated and self-less in his focus on any individual's or department's medical liability needs. Working together over these years I consider him a valuable member of my health care team and I could not imagine working with a different medical liability broker.
