David Rothfeld is a fellow physician so discussing with him my healthcare related business idea was a breeze.

He was attentive, patient and very friendly which made the discussion that much easier. (Healthcare business)
David was fantastic! He reviewed my business plan beforehand, provided substantive feedback during our session and put me in touch with a bevy of other resources I need to hit the ground running with our business.(Brick and mortar business)
David was clear and direct about our relationship and the topics he was competent, and issues that I needed to follow-up about with other professionals. Moreover, he spoke authentically, which is a quality that I appreciate in other professionals. Finally, David referred to several other SCORE resources that I could utilize (e.g., simple steps to starting a business seminar).(Sports Psychology practice)
