“Shannon did an amazing job for our group, as always. Participants rated your presentation above what we consider excellent! We highly recommend her!”

“I have been coding for over 15 years and have attended MANY E&M classes, courses, etc.. When I was asked to attend the E&M Auditing Boot Camp, to be honest, I did not feel I needed anymore training. If I did not know E&Ms by now, I should not be coding. My mind instantly changed when taking this Boot Camp from Shannon, especially the detail and simplicity of explaining Medical Necessity. No one has ever explained MN as well as Shannon did. This is by far the best class I have ever taken, with the teaching tools given to make it easier to chose an E&M. I definitely believe now refresher courses in E&M are vital to our job performance and I will be taking those courses only through NAMAS from now on! Loved the Boot Camp!!!!”
