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.
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.
[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.
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.
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.
