Client Quotes

Dave Fields
IT and Medical Equipment Director, Hospital at Loma de Luzz

Rich helped us move from an old, out of date, website to a new, modern, website that works great on mobile. He has been great to work with throughout the entire life cycle of the project. He gets back to us quickly, explains things in a way that a non-technical person can understand, and is very reasonably priced. We commend him to you as an great person to work with and an excellent resource!

Jeremy Gabrysch
Medical Director, Soddo Christian Hospital

Rich communicated clearly with us on the concepts and goals for our website. He understood quickly what we were trying to accomplish, and added to that significantly from his own expertise. The end result was a high-quality site that exceeded our expectations.
