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.
I have worked with Kirk for more than 5 years. He has helped us place a real-time budget in place that has become the bible for any fiscal decisions we make for our practice. Kirk has made site visits to our office and has been helpful in organizing our staff to be more structured and productive. He has also been helpful in increasing staff morale. He’s quick to respond any time we have a question or concern and has been helpful in solving any problems that occur. He is very adept in all aspects of our optometric practice and has been very helpful in any management aspects. He has been a lifesaver.
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 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.
