Barakat Orthodontics

Dr. Rana Barakat has operated her orthodontic practice in Northern Virginia for 16 years. She was referred to the CST Group in 2005 for help in structuring her business appropriately. “When you’re studying to be a medical or dental professional,” Dr. Barakat says, “you’re not trained in finance and business. You rely on someone who has accounting and financial expertise for medical and dental practices.” She adds that “The CST Group has helped me set up a proper business entity and much more.” Dr. Barakat indicates that the CST Group has assisted with her practice’s financial matters in the areas of business valuation, taxes, and payroll services. “They are extremely knowledgeable and professional,” she says, adding that “They are also very timely and responsive in responding to questions.” Dr. Barakat is also happy with the personal service level offered by the CST Group. “They have the expertise of a big company,” she says, “but they always know who I am when I call. They have taken their time to know me and my financial goals, and they’re very good at letting me know proactively about the changes and developments I need to know about.”
