A Few of Our Happy Clients

I am the Chief Medical Officer at a Federally Qualified Health Center and have had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Shabazz during my first HRSA site review. She provided great insight and suggestions. Dr. Shabazz has traveled all over the nation reviewing health centers, providing technical assistance, and mentoring physician leaders. She is accessible and continues to serve as a mentor. I highly recommend Dr. Shabazz as a resource for leaders in ambulatory healthcare

Former CMO of a New Jersey community health center

As a newly appointed FQHC Chief Medical Officer, I have found Dr. Shabazz’s business and leadership acumen invaluable. Her initial onsite assessment was detailed and included clinical, operational and financial reviews. The advice she delivered was candid and sound. It emphasized best business practices as well as HRSA requirements.

In addition, I have found our weekly calls especially useful and exciting. I am able to share immediate challenges and receive impromptu guidance. She is an inspiring coach and I am grateful to have found her.

Dr. Catherine Christie, Former Chief Medical Officer - Hampton Roads Community Health Center, Portsmouth, VA

I would like to acknowledge and thank Dr. Constance Shabazz for the support I received from her earlier this year. She provided me with technical assistance and CMO coaching. She was extremely helpful and provided me with excellent practical advice that has been of major benefit to me in my day to day work. Dr. Shabazz is a professional, thorough, attentive, knowledgeable, and empathetic individual. Her vast experience allows her to work effectively and provide an excellent learning experience.

Dr. Carmen Mallamaci, Former Chief Medical Officer - North Hudson Community Action Corporation Health Center, West New York, NJ,

As a first year Medical Director, I was struggling to understand all of the duties and decisions that I had to make in my new role. Dr. Shabazz provided me with invaluable information, perspective, and guidance. After assessing my learning needs and the status of our center, she laid out a solid foundation of knowledge necessary to being an effective medical director in a FQHC. Since her on-site consultation, she has been available to me for follow-up questions and to keep me on track in pursuit of the goals that I set for myself and my center, while validating the challenges that I confront and helping me to problem-solve effectively. I recommend her enthusiastically.

Dr. Lynda Bascelli, Medical Director - Project H.O.P.E., Camden, NJ

Dr. Shabazz visited my clinic in the summer of 2010 to help the administrator and me, the Chief Medical Director, to improve our patient service quality. She was not only just very familiar with the HRSA program requirements and the roles of a Chief Medical Director in a FQHC, but also she had the ability to identify the weaknesses and strengths of my clinic. She also provided me with the details about how to set up the quality improvement policy and plan. I am a new graduate and do not have a lot of experience on how to manage the clinic, especially when the clinic needs to meet the complicated requirements of the federal government and the needs of special populations. To me, Dr. Shabazz is the coach who had the required skills and confidence.

Qilin Song, M.D., Ph.D., MSPH, Former Chief Medical Director - Metropolitan Community Health Center, Washington, NC

I’m a new Medical Director in my first week, feeling overwhelmed and wondering if I was even doing the right things. Dr. Shabazz graciously took time to bring her expertise to bear. She’s been training Medical Directors for years and it was very evident. She exuded a calm confidence that put things in perspective as we discussed them. She didn’t seem rushed and she really wanted to make sure things made sense to me. I’m more confident in moving ahead with my next steps with solid information and tested experience in my corner.

M. Altaf Kaiseruddin, MD, Former Medical Director - Inner City Muslim Action Network (IMAN), Chicago, IL
Dr. Shabazz and her colleagues have provided invaluable guidance to FQHCs and organizations that are becoming FQHCs.  Their technical expertise, years of experience, and ability to convey that experience to community health center staff and board members is exceptional
