To Whom It May Concern,
I have known and worked with Mr. Tom Nater and Quartek Group for over three years. He and the Quartek Group came to my attention as I was looking for a medical design expert to help create a new modern medical clinic in Port Dover, Ontario.
I had researched other architects and contractors but they did not seem to have the necessary experience and understanding of medical clinic design. Their designs in my opinion, lacked innovation and understanding of medical office workflow as it relates to the efficient design of the work space. Mr. Tom Nater was enthusiasticallyrecommended to me by the physicians of the Tillsonburg Medical Clinic as they had him design and build their medical clinic. They continue to be very pleased with the design and efficiencies of their work place years after its completion.
In early November 2011, I contracted Mr. Tom Nater to be the project manager and design consultant to renovate a 2,000 square foot former restaurant and transform it into a state-of-the-art medical clinic. Mr. Nater represents a full service firm that brings to the table an extensive range of skills, expertise and unique perspectives on clinic design. These services include and are not limited to site development, interior and exterior design, workflow analysis and above all, the coordination of the overall project. He is highly organized, very collaborative, communicates well and is above all else able to provide very unique and innovative solutions to the various design challenges.
He and his team are always readily available to answer questions, deal promptly and professionally with any issues, and coordinate effectively the various team members in such a construction project. Mr. Tom Nater and his team were able to complete the medical clinic renovation within 10 weeks of starting deconstruction/construction. I needed to be out of my old office by July 1, 2012 and we were able to move into the new office July 5, 2012 and were ready to see patients on July 6, 2012.
The new clinic has met all my expectations and more. It is a modern architecturally unique design of space based on the understanding of how I as a medical practitioner and my staff work. From the unique waterwall in the waiting room with its soothing sounds, to the bright open business and reception area that optimizes the use of natural light, to the well laid out exam rooms with coordinated design features, the clinic impresses all that have visited it. The design has allowed me to increase my productivity without really feeling overworked. We have also experienced an unexpected growth with over 200 new patients applying in the first two months to the new office. I have only heard positive comments from my patients and the community in regards to the new clinic and it has been a well received addition to the downtown core of Port Dover. I would highly recommend Mr. Tom Nater and his design team for any future projects. It has been a privilege and pleasure working with him and I cannot thank him and his team enough for making my vision of a modern medical clinic a reality.
Yours sincerely, Dr. Harold Hynscht
