Just wanted to tell you thank you. I would be way too nervous to make these big decisions and move forward without your business expertise. I can feel confident growing and moving forward because of you! Thank you. Have a great day!
[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 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.
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!
