Program Testimonials

“They always say to work smarter not harder! We all know that we have to work hard being equine professionals and as professionals we need to understand how to work smarter as well. It sometimes feels next to impossible to run a practice and practice medicine. The Oculus 10’s group has been invaluable in understanding the business side of owning a practice. We all know how to practice medicine but we need to know how to practice business! The 10’s group is educating me on exactly that! I have already put procedures in place, reworked financial statements and tightened inventory control; all things that have already started to make a huge difference in my bottom line. If you own a practice, manage a practice, or plan on doing so in the future you need to participate in an Oculus 10s group.”

“I have really benefited from the first year of the 10s Program. The Accounting & Financial Reporting course with instructor Wendy Potratz is well taught and informative. The instruction, business tools, and templates provided by the Oculus Company are very useful. The camaraderie with the other veterinarians and business partners (sponsors) in my group is enlightening and enjoyable.”

“Being a part of the 10s Group has given me the tools to make my 1-2 doctor practice more profitable and has allowed me to become much more efficient with my time. The collaboration with like-minded veterinarians is invaluable.”

“After years of business conferences, CE, journal articles, and taking management courses at two different universities, I was looking for something more to move my practice forward. I investigated numerous MBA programs with the thought that this type of course of study was my only option. I was looking for a collegial atmosphere with evidence based education and value for my time away from my practice. I then found the Oculus 10s Group. The 10s Group offers the education of MBA courses, the direct application to equine practice, and the stimulation to move my practice forward with support from an open and honest group of practices.”

“I have been with Chaparral Veterinary Medical Center for over 14 years and I have always wanted to be more involved in the business side of our practice. Being a Practice Manager (not a DVM) there have been limited opportunities until I joined Oculus. This opportunity has given me the chance to meet with others knowing that we are all in this together and we all share the same ups and downs in the industry. Oculus10s Groups are unique in the sense that I am able to represent our practice from the role of Practice Manager. I am able to learn new business strategies, accounting and every day practical applications that can be put into practice at our mixed animal clinic. Our owners are still very involved but this allows them to focus on what they enjoy the most, practicing veterinary medicine. The first year went by quickly and I am excited to see what this year will bring.”

“As a new practice owner, the 10s Group has provided me with the perfect forum to help me better understand the intricacies of equine business practice. Building my business and accounting knowledge base from the ground up is exactly what I needed in moving into the ownership phase of my career. Becoming part of an educational business group with like-minded progressive individuals, such as the 10s group is a must for any practice owner.”

Dr. Rodney Belgrave DVM, Dipl. ACVIMMid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center Ringoes, New Jerseywww.midatlanticequine.com

“When I was initially contacted by Dr. Chuck Johnson about joining the 10s group I was skeptical. I have been unimpressed with other practice management groups and their philosophies. This is different. It’s all about education. You learn the fundamentals of business management so you can lead your own practice to its fullest potential. The team, environment, and curriculum are outstanding.”

Dr. Steve Latimer DVM Northwest Equine Veterinary Associates Maple Valley, Washington www.nwequinevet.com

“One of the most difficult things to do in veterinary medicine is to develop the skills, knowledge and practical applications to run your business in a productive manner. I made the decision to join a 10’s group with great trepidation because the idea of business was foreign to me as a practice owner. I have been to practice management and continuing education sessions but it seemed that their only strategies were: “Collect at time of service”, “Create new profit center for the practice” etc. After the first session with Oculus I was convinced this program would help me in my business where I am and not just give me ideas on how to run my business. The skills, tools, and knowledge of the course materials along with practical applications like budgeting and equipment break even analysis, are just a few things I have learned during my time in the group. I feel that the groups are very well organized in that all the practices are a great asset to each other. I could not express my thoughts about the program except by saying you should have enough knowledge for an EMBA but still be able to practice veterinary medicine. I think that Oculus 10’s groups provide the best of both worlds.”

Dr. Paul Y. Wan DVM, Dipl. ACVS Equine Veterinary Specialists Medical Center Norco, California www.equinevetspecialists.com

“I have always been interested in business, and in my position as a multiple practice owner with both small animal practices and a mixed animal (companion/equine) practice, it went from an area of interest to a necessity. Oculus Insights has been what I have been looking for, for years. With a relaxed learning environment that provides an exuberant amount of information, Oculus 10s Group gives me flexibility to work at my own pace with very supportive instruction as well as great networking opportunity. The support of the veterinary industry allows this to be a very affordable option for anyone with a passion for business and a desire to succeed and surpass expectations as a veterinary business owner or manager. The tools alone are invaluable in helping understand the material, as well as applying them to my own practices. I feel very fortunate to be allowed to participate in a group that wants me, and the veterinary profession as a whole to prosper.”

Dr. Ryan Zimmerman DVM Westview Veterinary Hospital, Inc. Freemont, Ohio www.westviewvethospital.com

“The Oculus program is providing us with the business education and tools needed to sustain our practice and increase our efficiency and profitability. As veterinarians, we were taught to assess our patients and develop a comprehensive care program tailored to their individual needs. We were not taught to create and manage our businesses in a cost effective and proactive manner. The group at Oculus seeks to change this through education from industry experts and interactive discussion among members.”
