We had the great opportunity to work with Kirk Kastens on multiple levels as a cold start practice. He was phenomenal in strategizing our next step and developing a system to make us productive from the start. We received terrific help with budgeting, goal setting, hiring, and patient scheduling as we continued to grow. Kirk’s extensive experience in “real world” private practice was a tremendous asset to help us turn a dream and a vision into a reality. We found it easy to communicate and relate our needs, which enabled us to put a plan in motion. We would definitely recommend Acquios to help with your current needs and your future growth. Top notch!
Rick is so personable and down to earth, but practical as well. He’s helped us with the business side of our entire practice, using his past experience to provide us with good insight and feedback about everything from finance and budgeting to the products we sell. He’s taken a vested interested in our future – you can tell he really cares and wants us to succeed. I appreciate both his extensive knowledge and his sincere approach.
[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.
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.
