Robert is a financial advisor with North Star Consultants’ Medical Division, working primarily out of Cincinnati. He runs an independent financial practice working primarily with specialty physicians and dentists. With a focus on providing a comprehensive financial services experience, Robert helps his clients grow and protect their wealth. Ultimately, Robert’s goal is for all his clients to reach financial independence and to have the option to retire comfortably. 

Working with medical professionals has allowed Robert to work with those who he believes share many of the same values he also holds in high regard: family-oriented, goal-centered, honest and compassionate. His main priority is to help his clients make wise financial decisions and to bring them financial security. Robert believes transparent communication between both parties is vital to accomplish this. 

Robert spends most of his time working with young physicians as they settle into practice and often settled into life. He has found that by working with physicians in the beginning stages of their careers, he can help them form the proper savings habits necessary to pursue their financial goals efficiently and thus make a greater impact in their lives. 

Robert has conducted educational speaking engagements at several of the teaching hospitals across the country including Cleveland Clinic, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Ohio State University, University of Michigan, Spectrum Health, University of Pittsburgh, Mercy Health, University Hospitals/Case Western, Detroit Medical Center, Summa Health, Akron General, MetroHealth, TriHealth, Michigan State University, Wayne State University, University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Indiana University, Henry Ford Health, St. Vincent Health, Wright State University, Mount Carmel Health, OhioHealth, Nationwide Children’s, Cincinnati Children’s, Akron Children’s, The Christ Hospital Health Network, St. Elizabeth Healthcare and University of Toledo.
