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.
Rick’s philosophy matches up with our own, and his recommendations are time-tested and proven to produce results. He has so much experience with many different kinds of optometry offices and the problems they all face. Since we started working with him, we’ve made tremendous changes to our office and office culture.
We’ve really taken off in the last 4 years, nearly doubling our annual sales to be in the top 5% for a single doctor’s office. Our increase in gross has all been due to our consulting and ideas from Rick. We rely heavily on him for our marketing, business plan, day-to-day office procedures and communications. The best thing we ever did for our practice was to use Rick’s consulting services.
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!
I’ve worked with Rick [since 2009], and he truly understands our business. He gets it. We’re trained as clinicians, but we need help with the business aspect of eye care. Rick is our coach, adviser and advocate. If you’re thinking about working with Acquios, sign up. I know you’ll be happy with your decision.
Over the past year I have used Acquious Advisors to help me navigate a practice buyout. Everyone at Acquios was phenomenal. Rick was constantly there to offer me the guidance and support I needed during this time. I am a fairly recent graduate from optometry school, and taking the leap to practice owner was one that I really struggled with. Rick and the rest of the team ran detailed financials on the practice I was buying, and made me feel so much more comfortable moving ahead with the purchase. Not only did they help me complete the buyout, but they also helped with the transition. They walked me through everything from coming up with an employee handbook to having to fire an employee. Rick got to know me and my practice. I look to him not only as a trusted advisor, but also a friend. I would highly recommend Acquios Advisors to anyone looking for assistance in purchasing a practice or needing guidance in running their practice.
