"We chose Williams Group to assist us in selling our practice after we had issues finding a qualified buyer. They knew exactly what we needed to do during each phase. The process was smooth, and I don't feel that the transition would have been as successful without them!"
Neil Boderman, OD
"I had worked with Williams Group before and was pleased with the help I received through their FastTrack program. When I decided to sell my practice and was having trouble finding potential buyers, I reached out to them again. Williams Group was able to screen potentials, saving me time and energy, while handling all negotiations with serious buyers. I don't think I would have sold my practice as quickly as I did or for as much as I did without their help."

"Before hiring Williams Group, I didn’t know much about running a business, and my practice was all over the place. We had no benchmarks set, no goals in place, and were just hoping to grow. Since hiring Williams Group, I am less stressed and know exactly where my practice should be. We grew by $70K in the first year with Williams Group, and have been growing at a great pace each year since. Currently, I am in the process of furnishing my third exam room, and we have a new OD who sees patients once a week for me. Williams Group has helped with just about every aspect of my practice. For me, this was life changing and the best thing for my staff, my practice, and myself."

"Working in non-private practice settings have their own advantages and disadvantages, but it was always an ambition to run my own business. After 25 years of practicing in medical and retail, and feeling limited in scope and ability to make improvements, I decided it was time to pursue my dream. Starting a practice from scratch and making all the required decisions from location, design, equipment, staffing, budgeting, marketing, and many other factors can be daunting. Williams Group are the calm professionals who supplied the knowledge and direction I needed to keep it all focused. Their experience and advice helped me utilize the best decisions and yield optimal outcomes without going through trial and error processes. I am already seeing patient growth patterns occurring and taking effect based on all the infrastructure built from Williams Group’s guidance."

"The first thing I decided when opening a new office was that I needed help. I hired Williams Group and have attended several of their training courses over the years. We have done everything they have taught us. During our first full year, we billed a little more than $750K, and it has only increased from there. We are on track to bill more than $4.6M this year. I owe all my success to Williams Group."

"Because of Williams Group, we saved time and money when updating our technology. We are now able to diagnose and treat eye diseases quicker and manage them in our own practice longer."

"When our MD partner expressed an interest in selling a portion of his ownership in our practice, we needed help with both establishing the value of the practice and transitioning shares to the new MD partner. We interviewed consultants with experience in working with optometry and ophthalmology practices, in search of a team that had a background of working with both professions. Williams Group was that team. With them, we received a comprehensive practice valuation that we were all comfortable with. They also provided advice and documents that both our existing partners and new partner greatly appreciated as they allowed for a smooth and successful transition. Williams Group was clearly the right choice."

San Pedro Eye Care | San Pedro, CA
"We initially hired Williams Group before purchasing a practice. They helped us analyze each opportunity that we were looking at and even talked us out of a few before we found the best one. Fast forward to our first few years of business. We were keeping business metrics, but we were not using the statistical data to implement any changes, nor understanding where all of our money was going. We decided to sign up for Williams Group Alumni Advantage program. With their help, we began to see an increase in revenues, a decrease in cost of goods and expenses, and improved efficiency from our staff, which was one of our biggest concerns. So far, we have seen a 30% growth in annual receipts per year. Numbers aside, we have been having a lot more fun and feel more in control of our practice than ever before! We have and will always highly recommend Williams Group! They are worth every penny. It’s like having another staff member and then some."

"After being employed as an associate optometrist for a year, I realized I wanted to be able to make my own decisions. I purchased a 70+ year established practice and knew I was going to need guidance through the transition as well as help with learning how to run a business. Williams Group kept me on track to efficiently make the right decisions. They understand what it takes to run a successful practice, and I have learned how to leverage it. In just six months, we nearly doubled our average revenue per patient! Because of Williams Group, I have a good work/life balance, and I truly enjoy being a practice owner."

605 Vision | Chamberlain, SD
"Upon purchasing an established practice after residency, we began to grow so quickly that we didn’t know how to handle it. Due to the overwhelming growth, we could feel that we were terribly inefficient and missing out on opportunities. We went to school for nine years to become OD’s—we did not learn how to manage a business. Enter: Williams Group; super teching, scheduling, tracking, employee management…they helped us in every aspect of our practice. When we’d go home at the end of the day, we used to find ourselves stressed and complaining about the business management aspects of being in private practice. That is no longer the case after hiring Williams Group. In fact, for the first time in our careers we are enjoying running a business. With the expert guidance of Williams Group, we have added four exam rooms, built a new parking lot, bought a new practice to move into ours, and are beginning the hiring process for a new, full-time OD. Our annual gross and revenue per patient continues to increase; that is despite working through a remodel that completely gutted our office and required many days off! Having a personal consultant help with decision making has been invaluable. We see Williams Group as being our lowest-paid, highest valued employee. We wouldn’t be where we are today without them."
