How I feel about Fluence: “I chose to join the firm, selected from the top of the list after listening to doctor after doctor rave about their experiences. I enthusiastically tell people I work for Fluence: a top-notch CPA and consulting firm filled with talented people who strongly advocate for the best interests of their clients. Rarely do you find a place that cares so much about team development and the maintenance of long-term client relationships. I consider it a privilege to come to work.”
