“I’ve had experience going to Dr.Mulholland’s workshops in the past. I think he’s a brilliant, not only businessman, business manager, but he’s also a very good physician, he does excellent work. I bought his book on how to manage and grow an aesthetic practice, and it’s been very beneficial. I think that one of the best things he taught me is that you’re not the doctor for every patient. That you basically want a patient that understands what you’re delivering, appreciates what you’re delivering, has consistent and realistic expectations.” – Dr. Z. Catherine Navarro, Vein Center of the Palm Beaches

“We just opened up a practice, Renaissance MD in California, so the more information the better. Listening to Dr.Mulholland was just really helpful because he gave us a lot of marketing tips, all the medical jargon about lasers, and he’s really passionate about what he does, and told us about all the tools you can put into your toolbox for aesthetics.” – Dr. Shazia Hyder

“I’m, by training, a family doctor in Illinois, and I got really interested in aesthetics about 5 years ago. How I met Dr.Mulholland is I came to a talk when he was in Chicago, talking about what it’s like to have an amazing practice like he does, and how passionate he is about his practice, so that was really catchy to me. I went up to him after the talk, at the time I was still in family practice, and I just asked, “How do I get to where you are?”. He thought about it for a little bit and he just said, “You just have to do it! You just have to start going to conferences, listen to other doctors talk, and start pursuing your dream.” And that’s what I did. When my contract expired in the hospital I was working with in June 2016, I opened up my own medical spa on June 20th! So, I’m really happy and appreciate everything he did to spark that little fire inside of me to do something I’ve always wanted to do.” – Dr. Nicole Norris
