Regional Water Treatment Manager at Steam Engineering/ BHS Marketing
Bob did a great job of explaining the options and developing an insurance package that suited our needs... I recommend him heartily!
I was scouting for better and cheaper health insurance since the health insurance I had for 3 years kept going up every year. I called a lot of agents to get quotations. It was only Bob that offered to come to my home in person ans explain the different options I had in replacing my health insurance. The other agents I talked to only wanted to explain them over the phone and were very unprofessional. Bob McCarthy did not only save me a lot of money with my new health insurance but also made me understand what coverage was better for me. I would recommend Bob 200% and I do to all of my friends that needs health insurance. Thank you Bob
My husband and I were new to Nevada and looking for health insurance for our family. I shopped and did research online and after many insurance agents/companies throwing themselves at us we came across Bob, his emails were short and to the point and he was not trying to sell anything he truly wanted to help and find an affordable package that fit our family. We met with him, he arrived on time and fully prepared with insurance policies that fit our needs based on a FEW specific things I was looking for. Overall Bob was pleasant, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. We got exactly what we were looking for, no catch.

Follow the steps below for checking on a business before you buy or contact the organizations listed on the left. Click here to learn more about how this industry is regulated.
1. Don’t pick a firm "out of a hat."
Finding a company on Google or Amazon is convenient. But it’s the equivalent of picking a name out of a hat. Better approach: Ask family, friends, and colleagues for referrals.
2. Follow the "paper trail."
If an online merchant fails to display contact info, proceed with caution.
3. Look for companies that follow "best practices."
Try to deal with companies that believe in doing business the right way. Narrow your search to those belonging to professional business associations that promote best-practice standards.
4. Tap the "wisdom of the crowd."
Understand that companies sometimes "game" review sites by giving incentives to their customers to write positive reviews or by having employees write them. Bottom line: treat reviews as an important "data point," but not the only measure by which to evaluate a company.
5. Inspect the work.
If you’re happy with what you’ve seen and heard, ask to see evidence of their work.
6. Put the firm under a microscope.
If you have any further doubts about the company—or if the purchase is very large—check with state consumer protection agencies or consider purchasing a background check on the business owners and/or principals.
