Details

“I was extremely impressed with Melissa’s organization and attention to detail which made her training extremely valuable to me. Melissa is erudite, personable, and entertaining. The materials that she developed have been of incalculable help to me in my efforts to organize my office and create a smooth transition to new systems.”

Confidence

“Melissa worked with me to implement nutritional assessment and testing and train my staff. We began by completing an online questionnaire about our practice and then discussed it at length in a conference call. Her background in business and practice management really gave me confidence I could make the changes. When she visited our office, she spent 2 long days reviewing intake and creating a better flow, ordering and inventory, check-out procedures, patient communications, staff utilization and discussed new ways to approach things. She provided many useful forms, website links and handouts for my staff.”

Dedication

“I met Melissa at the Standard Process practice building seminars she taught in Loveland, CO. I wanted to put in writing what this seminar has done for our practice. My husband has been practicing in the Denver area since 1980. He has run the practice by himself with me doing very limited administrative duties off and on over the years as my work schedule permitted. Recently, I left a non-profit management position and began working with my husband full time. After attending this seminar in the Spring 2010, I began to implement many of the practice building tasks and ideas she presented there. As a result, 2010 was the largest grossing year in the history of our practice. Our income was up 20 percent over 2009! We added Wellness Classes, a monthly newsletter, appointment reminders, took a look at our customer service policies, placed patient education material throughout the waiting room and treatment rooms. Melissa recommended the use of Systems Survey Maestro™ as well and that has increased supplement sales to 1/3 of our total gross. We’re looking to taking that even further in 2011. I am so grateful for the time and energy that Melissa has put into her presentations. Melissa, please know that there are those of us out here who have found your information, your suggestions and energy invaluable. Thank you so much for your dedication and your willingness to share your knowledge.”

Implementation

“I wanted to express thanks to Dr. Taylor and Melissa for all they do to serve me and my practice. We appreciate all the help so we can achieve success implementing their suggestions and by using their knowledge and expertise. They share so readily and givingly. I enjoy, and I'm motivated by their passion for health and nutrition – it radiates from them as they share. Please, keep doing what you do so well for me.”

Dedication

“I would like to say “thank you” to Dr. Chris and Melissa Taylor for the time and dedication they put into the Fusion Practice Coaching Program. Having been in practice for just over a year, I have needed a lot of assistance during this time. Chris and Melissa have been available whenever I have needed them to help with protocols and to get my nutrition practice started. Thanks for all you do!”

Chad Frandsen, DC

Energy

“My wife and I have been doing 1-1 counseling with Melissa via the phone and using post session materials and tips between calls for just about 2 months. We are feeling the energy level increase in our clinic. This is the vision we have seen for ourselves for years and now we’re finally making it happen. The nutrition side of our practice is already beginning to transform and we have not even hit our target date yet. Thanks Melissa.”

Effectiveness

“We have been to many Standard Process seminars and the Fusion Practice Coaching Program has been extremely helpful to us. We have been applying the tools the Taylor's have given and have found them very effective in helping us to create our own personalized nutritional program in our office. Not only are these seminars helpful to new practices, but also offer many ways to improve an existing practice. We are so appreciative to Dr. Chris and Melissa Taylor for their time and services.”

Knowledgeable

“Dr. Chris and Melissa Taylor are an invaluable resource to Standard Process practitioners like us in the field. We recently moved here from the mid west and are so impressed with how the Taylors manage things in Utah. Their counsel, whether over the phone or coming to our office, has been vital to our success as a nutrition practice. It is great to have such knowledgeable resources available, allowing us to better serve our patients. We have attended nearly every seminar they have given since we relocated here. Each month our nutrition sales continue to grow, which is a great revenue source for our practice. Without their help, our practice and nutrition sales would not be what they are today. With their help we hope to continue growing our practice.”

Interactive

“I’ve been learning from Dr. Chris and Melissa for over a year through their seminars and other training sessions. They are unbelievably knowledgeable and always make everything very interactive. Over the past two months, Melissa has been coming to our office and providing one-on-one training on a weekly basis. Not only has it been beneficial, but it’s taken our practice to the next level. As I said before, I knew Melissa knew her stuff, but never could have anticipated the expertise she not only had in nutrition but also in business. She has been able to come in and through just observing for a short time, tell us where our attention needs to be focused and what is a priority. She’s helped us create and decorate a brand new nutritional space in our practice. She’s worked with us on new patient phone calls, consultations, emails responses, documentation and processes, our website, power point presentations, and the list goes on. She’s incredible at working with each one of the staff and adjusting our business practice in a way that’s doable and fits each person’s personality. She really puts effort into explaining things in a way that we grasp in our own learning style. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I believe that knowledge is power, and when you’re running a practice, patient conversion comes through education. This is where Melissa excels. I wish I could be a constant fly on her shoulder to absorb all she knows. I don’t think we could have her come in more than once a week because it takes that long for us to process everything she’s shared and complete our homework. Every session, I gain 4+ pages of notes to implement into our practice. She will take you along as quickly or as slowly as you want to move and make sure you’re on board every step of the way."

Enthusiasm

“Dr. Chris and Melissa Taylor are the best resource anyone wishing to expand the nutritional aspect of their practice could ask for! Their enthusiasm is contagious, and their knowledge and expertise are top notch. I have done one on one training with them, attended seminars presented by them, had them come to the office for staff training, and it has all been great! They have even done several Purification classes for my patients that were a fabulous success. I can't speak highly enough of them and wholeheartedly recommend them as coaches and mentors!”

Care

“Dr. Taylor, Melissa and RoquesAnn went above and beyond in helping our practice reach higher levels of success. The ideas and tools that were shared during our Fusion Practice Coaching seminars and 1-1 sessions have been invaluable to our team in serving our patients to the highest degree of care. I recommend that all of our chiropractic associates sign up for the program.”

Jenn Stockwell, Practice Manager, Stockwell & Associates

Appreciative

“I am afraid I really lack the words to express how truly appreciative I am to have Chris and Melissa as such valuable resources and mentors. They are just a phone call or email away (with usually an almost immediate response) from getting expert advice or answers to any product, clinical or business question. In fact, Chris complained to me that I don’t call enough (which is true). The luncheons are so informative and educational that I am truly disappointed if I have to miss one. I believe Standard Process West should consider themselves extremely fortunate to have Chris and Melissa as their representatives; because I know how fortunate I am to have them here in Utah.”

Dan Monson, DC

Amazing Teachers

“I can’t tell you how impressed I am with Melissa, her teaching ability and knowledge. Her seminars are ones that I try very, very hard not to miss because I learn so much. She is my favorite Standard Process West Mentor. Chris and Melissa put on the most organized, information packed seminars and leave me wanting more. Standard Process West is lucky to have them and I congratulate the company for snagging such great teachers.”

Excellence

“Dr. Chris Taylor and his wife/manager/super woman, Melissa run a first class operation! They have put together an excellent program that, if followed, will lead to success in running a whole food nutrition practice. I have employed only a few of the gems that they teach into my practice and I have noticed improved retention and improved outcomes. I highly recommend their classes and practice management programs. They are very personable and especially willing to help in any way they can. They practice what they preach. Not only are they great educators but they are great people. They are “real” and have a passion for sharing natural means of getting well and staying well. I have appreciated all the help that they have given selflessly for the profession of Chiropractic and to me and my family personally. My confidence in using therapeutic nutrition to help many of the maladies of our day has vastly increased since taking their program. Lastly, their assistant, RoquesAnn Armstrong, is an amazing person who embodies their mission to help all practitioners of the natural healing arts to improve their knowledge of therapeutic nutrition. So to sum it all up:  Anyone who wants to improve their knowledge regarding running a whole food nutrition practice would be missing out BIG TIME if they didn't take the time to learn from these gifted healers."

Effectiveness

“Nutrition was the missing element in my practice. I had one or two classes way back when, but I had no idea where to start acquiring the knowledge I would need to safely and effectively treat my patients. I called Standard Process West and they provided me with a way to contact Melissa Taylor. So you may ask, “What have the Taylor’s done for me?” I have attended several of their nutrition seminars in Salt Lake City, I have had countless phone conferences with Melissa, and I have been able to contact them anytime with questions that come up through the normal day. To this point, there has not been a question they were not able to help with (and believe me, I have asked a lot of questions). Their knowledge of any and every product we have access to is second to none. Melissa has spent many hours on the phone with me going over products, how to market nutrition, how to make effective protocols and going over diagnostic testing to better understand which products to use and when. I encourage anyone wanting to add nutrition to their office or anyone looking to increase knowledge they already have, to call them. I have always believed that if you take care of the patient, the money will follow. The patients I help are more important to me than the money I can make, but if you need to know numbers, my monthly revenues exceed $3000 and up and this is only after 18 months.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Chris and Melissa for almost three years now. They have spent more time than I can tell you helping me learn the products, how to use them and how to market them. They are always available for questions. They have made it very easy for me to convert my chiropractic practice into a therapeutic nutrition practice. Their knowledge of the Standard Process and MediHerb lines is incredible. I appreciate everything they have done for my practice, my family and myself.”

"RoquesAnn is amazing! I started working with her during the Fusion Practice Coaching Program. The one-to-one training was invaluable. RoquesAnn helped with everything from supplement protocols to the heart sound recorder results. She is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions as well as giving me some great ideas for our office. I am so glad to know and work with RoquesAnn, it is truly a pleasure."

Lifesaver

“When I started carrying Standard Process supplements, I was almost completely clueless about all things nutrition and health. I knew I was in over my head when I saw how big the product list is! Luckily, I was assigned to the best mentors a person could ask for. RoquesAnn was a lifesaver for me, helping me find my footing and figure out a plan for wrapping my head around whole food nutrition. Thanks to her, I now feel competent and I have several successful case studies to back up my confidence. I could not be more grateful for her assistance and support.”

Genuine

“When I began working with RoquesAnn Armstrong with Whole Food Practice about 6 months ago, I had no idea the changes that I was about to go through. I had studied functional nutrition for years and had a strong understanding of whole food nutrition and its importance in health practice, but I always struggled with putting my knowledge into practice. RoquesAnn quickly identified my strengths, but she could tell that there was some sort of a mental block within me that kept me from fully implementing functional nutrition. I noticed the genuine interest she had in helping me become successful as she facilitated the process of breaking down some of those barriers. From conference calls, suggesting books to read, and critical thinking guides, I can say that my nutrition practice is growing quickly thanks to RoquesAnn Armstrong and Whole Food Practice."
