It’s been a long road for Tim Ioannides but he’s managed to overcome every obstacle set in his path and he is now the founder and CEO of Treasure Coast Dermatology, a successful practice that has expanded from just one location to five different offices throughout Florida. So how has he managed to attain such a level of success? He recently sat down to discuss his experiences and where he hopes to go in the future of his career. He began as a first-year student at the University of Miami med school where he endeavored to study dermatology so he could help patients suffering from various skin conditions. He was accepted into a prestigious medical internship program which he accepted and ended up graduating with honors before doing his residency.
After the completion of his academic career, Tim Ioannides accepted his first job working in the private sector at a dermatology practice. Whilst there, he helped with clerical work and shadowed the other doctors to get a feel for what it’s like working with patients. However, he soon realized they cared more about profits than patients and subsequently left that job so he could open his own practice dedicated to treating patients with kindness and respect. He did this by ensuring he personally meets with every one of the patients who come to his practice and having his staff takes notes using a pen or pencil so they can focus more on treating them than looking at screens.
For those looking to become entrepreneurs, he recommends they read the book how to win friends and influence people as he believes there are a lot of helpful tips in there. He also doesn’t use traditional marketing practices to promote his business as he finds word of mouth is the most effective method.
