20/20 Money Episode 35 – The Path of Multidisciplinary Success-The Story of Dr. Jennifer Stewart, OD

July 8, 2019

Hello, and welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Jennifer Stewart.

Jennifer is a partner at Norwalk Eye Care, a private practice in Norwalk, CT. The reason that I wanted to have Jennifer on the show is because of her insatiable quest for knowledge on how to run an incredibly efficient and profitable practice by becoming a student of the numbers within the practice. She’s also dedicated part of her professional life to the growing specialty of sports vision training, having launched a second business that’s actually located on the second floor of an ice hockey arena.

Our conversation starts out with some background on her journey into private practice, specifically around her journey into practice ownership. We then discuss her venture into sports vision and what it’s meant to her practice. Our conversation then shifted towards the business side of optometry. Jennifer shares her favorite non-optometry related business book as well as the key piece of practice management software they use in their practice to ensure they have a handle on all of their numbers.

Our conversation then took an unexpected turn as we dove down the rabbit hole of daily disposable lenses and the impact that those have made not only for their patients but also their bottom line.

Towards the end of the conversation, we talk about the role that being fit and active has played in each of our lives. We chat about the ripple effect that exercising has and how taking time to take care of yourself physically (through a workout) can actually give you some much-needed “alone time” to just think about your business.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 15min pre-discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about what it means to work with our firm or download our popular ebook called “Five Tips to Financial Freedom for Optometrists.”

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Dr. Jennifer Stewart.
