“I have known Mike and Chelsea for more than a decade.  I first met Mike in the successful firm he founded and managed, and I met Chelsea through that practice as well.  I have always found them to be ethical, capable, and focused on how they could deliver value, and expert assistance, to the people they served.”

“The Reeds strike a perfect balance of energies you want on your team and in your corner for business and entrepreneurship. Chelsea and Mike are intensely focused but patient listeners. They embrace drive and achievement but also mission and service. They can take your vision and distill it to actionable, staged goals that turbocharge progress. They marry hard skills with soft. Having worked with them in a very intense, driven, highly focused environment with type A people, but also with a public service mission and non-for profit background, I’ve seen both of these dynamics at play with both Chelsea and Mike as leaders with complementing, but different skill sets.”

“Chelsea Reed has always been a leader. A great facilitator, flexible, smart and savvy, with innovative ideas and deep integrity, I have found her to be the water that lifts all boats in our community. How? She brings not only commitment, but also has that spark that ignites action and gets results.
Who do you go to when you want to get to the next level? I met Chelsea and Mike back in 2016 through the Palm Beach North Chamber, and over the years have seen them help business owners strengthen their brands, gaining visibility and credibility in new or niche markets. Whether an entrepreneur or an established biz, if you have an idea, product, or service and can’t bring it to market it does the world little good. Chelsea and Mike have the tools and the experience to help you make it a reality, as well as one with impact.”

“Chelsea’s data-driven approach urges every decision that is made to be based on facts, not just on a “feeling”. Her ability to strip a problem down while being solutions-focused results in streamlined processes, best allocation of resources, implementation of performance metrics, and most importantly – action! With Chelsea at the wheel, things get done.
Through her various leadership roles, Chelsea often finds herself at the head of whatever table she is sitting at, however she has a gentle yet captivating way of making everyone gathered feel seen and heard regardless of the agenda. She is a consensus builder, offering keen observations, posing careful and tactful questions – the perfect model of polished diplomacy. Chelsea’s ability to translate big-picture goals into practical, achievable steps has proven invaluable in the many instances where big decisions must be made by a varied group.”

“Mike Reed exemplifies four wonderful traits:  (1) intelligence, (2) emotional intelligence, (3) domain knowledge and (4) the skill to focus on and prioritize the critical issues without losing track of the less-pressing matters.  I have worked with Mike in the context of M&A transactions.  Mike understands the people issues, which are paramount, and combines that with superior thinking about financial structuring and post-transaction operational integration.  Once an M&A transaction has been completed, I have witnessed Mike’s skills in putting together and handling a complex integration that takes into account both the technical requirements of the process and the people issues.  On a personal level, I would trust Mike with anything and everything in my life, no questions asked.”

“I met Mike and Chelsea Reed as a new graduate in the Physical Therapy field.  I had no idea at the time how much they would positively influence my life with an abundance of knowledge in both medical and business mentorship.  I am honored to say I am now an owner of a concierge private practice specializing in spine care.  I am able to treat patients in a way that provides care most conducive to maximizing potential for the patient and graced with satisfaction as a clinician.  We created a model that took my family into consideration without having to sacrifice job satisfaction and patient centered results.  I could not have achieved this without their guidance and expertise.  I will always stay very appreciative to them both.  It is also great piece of mind to know they are always just a phone call away!  I highly recommend partnering with them to achieve more goals than you ever thought possible.”

“As a small business owner in Palm Beach County, I have always been able to count on Dr. Reed and Chelsea Reed for thoughtful and specific guidance with my business. Their experience and more importantly their integrity have made them an invaluable resource to myself and this community.”

“Walt Disney one said, “the way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing,” I’ve always found the best way to become successful in life is to look at what successful people did and follow them. Otherwise, someone will come up with your idea and you’ll end up working for them. 

16 years ago, I had a dream to start one of the first Concierge medical practices in Palm Beach County and one of the few concierge family medicine doctors in the country at that time ..I had been a practicing family physician for 10 years seeing on average 25 to 35 patients a day, five days a week. At the young age of 37, 

I was so stressed and burnt out from medicine that I was ready to quit a profession that I loved and always wanted. My idea was to start an old-fashioned family doctor office providing house calls and bringing back medicine to the way it was in the 1940s and 1950s. Unlike most of the current concierge doctors that start with a large practice of a few thousand patients, I started with one patient, and I took my doctors bag and brochures and walked door-to-door in the neighborhoods surrounding Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens. Shaking hands and introducing myself at people’s doorstep like a vacuum salesman would have back in the day.

At that time, I was lucky enough to have one of my best friends, Dr. Michael Reed by my side at every step. Michael was not only a friend to me but an inspiration to help me grow my practice. Anytime I needed advice, support, or encouragement. Mike and his wife Chelsea were always there. His knowledge of running a successful business helped guide me to continue striving to get to what my dream practice was, and I never let anything, or anyone stop me from obtaining that…

Fast forward to 2023 and I now have one of the most successful Concierge Medical practices in Palm Beach County. Voted one of Jupiter’s “Top Docs” in 2022. I am no longer excepting new patients into my practice and see on average 5 to 10 patients a day and work only 32 hours a week. It was a long, hard road but I know in my heart without Michael Reed I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank you Mike not only for your friendship but for your guidance and always helping me remember who I am and who I always want to be.”
