Dr. Tim Ioannides is a different type of doctor. One who puts his patients and employees over profits and acclaim. He is a dermatologist located in the Florida area and has been successful despite his unorthodox methods. His journey can be an inspiration to other medical workers who have a true passion for helping people.
Dr. Tim Ioannides says that he has built a successful practice by staying true to his passion, helping people with skin concerns. His journey to establishing a successful practice has taken great strategy. When he first opened his practice, he had to offer cosmetic procedures to generate patient traffic. But once his practice established a loyal patient base, he began to phase out the cosmetic procedures for more dermatological focused ones.
The offering and phasing out of the cosmetic procedures also meant that he had to be very strategic about his profits. Cosmetic procedures are traditionally more profitable than non-cosmetic procedures. Tim Ioannides had to put his business skills to use to ensure that his practice would become successful. He did this through a savvy marketing strategy, first offering cosmetic procedures and gradually phasing them out.
The non-cosmetic procedures he offers are paid either out of pocket or billed through the insurance company. Tim Ioannides says that he had to be realistic to make a profit and kept in mind the operational cost associated with his business.
Dr.Tim Ioannide’s built his patients base from his previous work at former offices. When he opened his practice, the patients followed him. He says that he does not advertise for new patients, and most of his patients are through word of mouth and referrals.
Dr. Tim Ioannides is a graduate of the University of Miami’s School of Medicine. His dermatologist practice, Treasure Cost Dermertogly, is located in Port St.Lucie, Florida.
