Testimonials

Scott Sander, OD

"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."

Gene Calkins, OD

"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."

Cheryl Alderson, OD, and Charles Dominguez, OD

"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."

Alex Permann, OD

"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."

Douglas Rienks, OD

"When I purchased an existing practice 16 years ago, I quickly found the difficulties that came along with it. We were floundering to get patients and struggling to make cashflow; all finances were going into the practice. I heard of Williams Group through a friend who had great success with them, and I liked their idea of what’s good for the patient is good for the practice. Williams Group helped me build the foundation of my practice. We went from having difficulties with practice growth to grossing more than seven figures annually."

Spencer Luke, OD, and Daniel Beckner, OD

"We have benefited from the services of consultants twice before, but no other consulting group taught us what Williams Group did. Providing us management tools and guidance to improve patient flow, profit, and employee training and role definition was invaluable. Our annual gross has increased by nearly 10%, and we have been able to raise wages and increase vacation time while still growing the practice. We feel we are headed for a brighter future."

Mary Lou French, OD

"The knowledge and consulting I received from Williams Group facilitated the growth of my practice to the point that when it was time to sell, my practice was making more than it ever had. While only working 3.5 days a week, Williams Group helped me double my income which, in turn, maximized the selling price of my practice."

Jay Schlanger, OD

"Although I had some knowledge in how to transition a practice from workshops and meetings, I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it alone. I was highly concerned with finding the right buyer that would ensure my practice would survive after the transition. Williams Group has seen it all. They can tell you what works and what doesn’t. With their guidance, not only did I find a quality buyer, but the whole process would have cost me a lot more if I had attempted it alone. They continue to be the only ones I trust."
