Rick’s been in the industry for a very, very long time. He used to work in optometry, so he’s seen it all. He knows everything in the field when it comes to vendors, staff and different optometric companies – and he’s worked with so many doctors across the nation for so long that I can go to him with any question and he has an answer for it, or he can get an answer for me very easily. He brings the nation’s optometry experience to my practice. That’s powerful.
[Since 2013], I have had the privilege of working with Kirk as I start my own optometric practice. Kirk’s mentoring and knowledge of the field have been instrumental in my growth over this first year. He is very professional and maintains a positive attitude in stressful situations. I get asked all the time about the one thing that I would recommend to someone starting their own practice, and the first word out of my mouth is always a good consultant. Kirk has helped me build the team, materials and confidence I needed to make my practice a success.
As an office manager, I often feel the pressure of managing chaos and struggling to keep things running smoothly for my doctors. Since beginning our relationship with Acquios Advisors, I no longer feel that stress. Rick is my secret weapon! Working with Rick for the past five years has been the best investment we have made in our practice. It has provided me with the opportunity to better manage my responsibilities and focus my energy on being the leader my team needs. We are now operating more smoothly; we have increased our productivity, production and profitability; and I have a better understanding of how my office is running. Rick has been such a huge contributor to not just my professional growth, but also my personal growth. I can truly say that I love my job, and love what I do, thanks to Acquios Advisors.
I am so thankful that I chose to work with Acquios. As an upcoming new business owner, there have been so many questions and areas of the business that I honestly have had no knowledge about. Kirk and Rick have been incredible. They respond so fast, had the best financial terms of any I had seen, and have already helped me save so much money in the negotiations. The biggest thing that sets them apart for me is how personable and kind they are. So many others I have talked with have been stuffy and intimidating and just made me feel inadequate. I have never felt anything but encouragement and support to my unending questions. It’s a small business that truly seems to care about ME and MY practice and not just a financial venture for them. I feel like they are both my advising team, colleagues and friends. It is by far the best business decision I have made as I know it will continue to positively impact every aspect of my business in the future. I can’t wait to see where this new venture leads!
As we know, most people are more inclined to post a bad review vs a good one. So I wanted to take this time to tell you both how much I appreciate your time and invaluable insights for my practice. Like good small businesses, you both provide personalized and customized care. I feel that on every phone call. I thank you for opening my eyes to opportunities. And I look forward to building a better business. Rick and Kirk don’t just provide you benchmarks but help you change the way you look at your practice.
