“The addition of the Appleton, Wisconsin office to our current locations in Florida, New York and California enables us to offer quicker decision-making, more efficient communication and teamwork, and greater speed and flexibility in responding to our customers’ needs in the region.”

“Schenck is a significant player in serving physician practices, and we felt teaming up with edgeMED would be mutually beneficial to both our organizations and clients,” said Greg Barber, CPA, president/CEO of Schenck. “With this move, our clients have access to greater resources through edgeMED’s best-in-class technology and intense focus on medical billing services, while continuing to benefit from our comprehensive consulting, tax and accounting services.”
