​Rikki Ragland

I was fortunate to work with Rikki Ragland when I was the Director of Neurosurgery Spine Service at the Evanston Northwestern Hospital 2006-2008. I found Rikki to be a very knowledgeable and professional as a medical public relationship expert. 


She spent multiple hours making sure that my colleagues and I felt comfortable and looked professional in front of the camera and microphones. She single handedly helped my practice and other practices become reputable and successful.


There is no substitute for the training, credentials and expertise in the medical field but if you are looking for a company to guide you through the challenges of dealing media and PR, I cannot think of a more qualified professional than Rikki Ragland.

In her role as a PR Director Rikki is organized, efficient and extremely competent. I have worked with Rikki for the past 2 years and we’ve collaborated many times. She assists with updates to the NorthShore web site by generating ideas for article topics, providing guidance on which doctors to contact to get the article written, as well as facilitating the communication between the doctor and the writer. 


​​Her communication skills are excellent and in my opinion it’s due to her extremely vivacious personality. She is very charming, has a great sense of humor and is a delight to interact with both on a professional and personal level.
