FAQ with Florida Med President,
Q: I’ve applied for and received other licenses by myself,
why do I need your licensing service?
A: The Florida Licensing process is very complicated and requires a lot of work and effort to complete from start to finish. Most of our clients don’t hire us because they are in a hurry, they hire us just to avoid the hassle associated with all the paperwork and red tape that goes in to getting a Florida Medical License.
But here’s another reason; The Florida Board has levied over $3,000,000 in fines, in the last 5 years to applicants who made HONEST and INNOCENT mistakes in their application. Most of these fines and mistakes could have been avoided had these Physicians hired Florida Med to help them with this process.
Q: How long does this process take?
A: Of course this can vary from Doctor to Doctor depending on background, work history etc... but most of our clients get through this process in about 2-3 months. We usually tell them to plan on about 3-4 months just to be safe.
Q: $800 seems like a lot of money for this type of assistance, why do
you charge so much?
A: If you think about it, $800 for 3-4 months worth of work is not very much money. To be perfectly honest with you, we are giving serious consideration to raising our rates. For the amount of work that we do over the time period that this process takes, $800 is peanuts. Again, there is a lot of paperwork required for this process and a lot of time required to complete this process and, again, the Florida Board of Medicine is not playing any games, just ask all those Physicians who got hammered with $5,000 fines over the last two years.
Q: What sets you apart from other Licensing companies?
A: Quite frankly, no one can provide better assistance with this process than we can and that is a FACT. We've been in business longer than all of our competitors and we are literally located just a few miles from the Florida Board of Medicine. We go down there every day to deliver applications, documentation etc... that is needed by the Florida Board for our clients. Our close proximity to the Florida Board coupled with my expertise, knowledge and experience sets us apart to say the least from our competitors.
Q: How do we get started?
A: Just fax or email us a CV and give us a call. After we get your CV, we're going to need about 10-15 minutes of your time on the phone to review what you've sent us. We want to make sure we understand everything and have all the necessary info before we start typing and preparing your application.
If you have any additional questions for us, please give us a call and we'll be happy to help you.
