20/20 Money Episode #291 – Implementing equipment purchases and expanding scope of care with intentionality in your optometry practice with Dr. Ryan Gustus

June 3, 2024

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Ryan Gustus, OD. 

Ryan joins me on the show live from Vision Expo East to discuss something that is very timely given the recording location: how practice owners can think about the implementation of various pieces of equipment in your practice to ensure that it’s done with intention and leads to profitability. As an example, Ryan shares the personal experience and process that he went through when he and his partner made the decision to implement an IPL in their multi-location practice to treat dry eye for their patients. Ryan also shares a unique way in which he actually had patients partially pre-pay for their upcoming treatment, even before he purchased the equipment, as a way to validate their commitment to the treatment, thus giving him the confidence to know that it was the right decision for their practice.
