Testimonials

 

Ryan-SchottI went into Dr. Despotidis’ SuperCharge event with very little idea of what to expect.  As someone new to Ortho-K, I felt I needed some guidance on how to take a dabbling facet of our practice and grow it into a profit center.  What I was so astounded with was the tremendous value SuperCharge offers.  Nick does so much of the leg work and drudgery for you by providing the logistical material when enabes you to get up and running as quickly as possible.  His help and concern does not stop at the end of the seminar; the value he brings continues as he provides webinars and blog posts throughout the year. His infectious and fiercely independent attitude is what Optometry needs, and I feel so fortunate to have attended SuperCharge.

Ryan Schott, O.D.


 

julie-lam

Since I was 14 years old, I wanted to become an optometrist and open my own practice. I fulfilled that dream for years ago when I opened up cold. I worked so hard to build up the practice and felt disappointed because I became a mouse on a wheel. I attended Supercharge for the first time in 2016 and then again in 2017. You re-invigorated my passion for private practice and made me realize what changes I could make to be happier. That’s ultimately the goal…to be happy!

Thank you for what you do and for helping to improve the quality of life of doctors like me. We are not quite where I want to be but at least now I know where we’re headed.

Julie Lam, O.D.

It gives me deep pleasure to write a few things about Dr.Despotidis after attending his “Supercharge Your Practice” workshop in Dallas.  The very first day back to my practice, I signed up an Ortho-K patient at a 60% higher fee than I normally charge.  Dr. D is very passionate about teaching practice management tools in a simple and applicable way.  I called him a few days ago with some questions, which he answered promptly.  I will attend his workshop again and I wish him even more success.

rich-jeffriesSeeing firsthand the excellent patient care that you and your team provide has truly expanded my understanding and appreciation of the critically important patient/practitioner relationship. I have had the privilege of working with healthcare professionals my entire career – including significant time in the Pharma industry.  Regardless of specialty, you set the bar for establishing trust and rapport with your patients.  My time with you was not only a learning experience, but a joy to watch!

My sincere thanks,

Michael-FauriaAs we approach my one year anniversary of our Supercharge experience I wanted to give you a quick update and a thank you for giving us the tools to move our practice in a new direction. It  is still a work in progress but we have made leaps and bounds in our movement within the last year. Our practice revenue overall  was up 5.8% last year and we saw 125 less eye examinations. Our contact lens revenue was up 22% or $58,000 over the prior year. So we worked less hard at eye examinations and made more money.

It was a lot of work to set up and get things started but it was well worth it. Your outlines were an invaluable guide for us and I doubt we could have progressed this far without them.

Thanks again,
Michael Fauria, OD


 

Sheryl-SimmsSuperCharge was a game changer in my office!  It has been almost two years since my attendance and I continue to differentiate my practice.  Thank you Dr. D for your expertise, it was an incredible seminar!

susan_pirroneThanks to your enthusiasm, materials, and ongoing hand-holding, we have managed to complete 90% of our new CRT program and have the last 10% in the works. Our enthusiasm for optometry is back in full force. Gone are the days of woe-is-me. How will we retire, if each day we have to work harder to keep afloat? Thank you for your dedication to optometry your quest for optometrists to love their work and lives. Thank you for your integrity and delivering just what you say you would. The materials you have so freely shared with us, have surely taken you years to develop. Thank you for SuperCharge.

jeff-klosterman

I’ve attended Supercharge three times:  Chicago 2013, Houston 2015, & Scottsdale 2016. Without your seminar, I would never have had that push to do more than any other eye professional has dreamed of.  For seven years, the growing headaches created by vision plans, inefficiencies created by EMR, and acronyms like MU/PQRS/MIPS kept me stressed not just in my practice, but also began to leach more and more into my home life. I also saw the negative effect it was having on my relationship between my patients and me. After SCYP in 2013, I decided to go “all-in” on developing an Ortho-K and myopia-control practice and break free from the insanity.  At each subsequent SCYP I’ve added ‘big-ticket’ items to establish for the coming year.  In just three short years, the results are astonishing.  I now spend approximately half of my clinic days on my Ortho-K patients.  I have a full day to myself, my CEO day, for planning the future direction of the practice.  I have ideal clinic hours, allowing me to pick my children up from school each day and never miss a practice, game, or recital.

Thanks to SCYP 2015 and 2016 goals, every six months I have dropped a VCP…leading me into 2017 in the position that so many optometrists say is impossible…taking care of my patients after dropping EVERY Vision Care Plan in existence!!  My Ortho-K practice continues to grow; our medical optometry practice is thriving, and the patient/doctor/staff relationships have been restored!

You were my catalyst, Nick. I’m eternally grateful.”

Jeffrey A. Klosterman, O.D.


 

michael_lyonsSince attending SuperCharge, there has not been a day that I have not thought about you, and your message. I have been “at the grind” for eight years in my private practice, knowing I could deliver better care on my own terms, but not understanding how. SuperCharge showed me how. Many of the basic principles you presented are now implemented in my practice. We will be offering our services at a higher level because we owe it to our patients and to ourselves. I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to show us your success and the path to get there.

Michael Lyons, OD

 


 

theodore_seesThank you for the awesome and motivating SuperCharge seminar. You gave me the tools…I just have to apply them. I realize that there are a lot of things I need to do to be the doctor that I want to be. It’s scary, but as you said, we can’t live in fear and must overcome it. Thanks again!

gina_wesley

First and foremost, thank you for such an awesome seminar.  Fantastic info.  I’m so much more confident to move forward and present GVSS as an option for my patients.  I’m applying the concepts from SuperCharge to MANY areas of my practice, not just corneal reshaping.  Such a valuable workshop; time and money well spent. Thank you for inspiring me in my practice. Supercharge was fantastic and I’m so thrilled with how what you taught is applicable in so many areas of my practice with the broad- thinking approach. Thank you!

Gina Wesley, OD

 


 

canaan_montgomeryI attended SuperCharge with my wife this year and was truly inspired by your message. Thank you for speaking truth into my practice at life. You brought about a moment of clarity for me when you said that our practice should facilitate the life we want to live, not be the centerpiece of it. I am finally seeing the path ahead for our young practice as it relates to my values and goals in life. We are dropping VSP today with plans to drop our final VCP with in a year. We are applying your course concepts not only to our ortho-K practice, but also to our VT practice. Again for your inspiration –I am grateful.

Canaan Montgomery, OD

 


jonathan-cho

I’m so thankful for SuperCharge. To your credit as a mentor you’ve been incredibly consistent with your insight, words of encouragement, and at times even honest rebuke.  I feel humbled to have new people entrusting me with their children’s care.  There’s a strong and proud professional moment when this happens. It’s amazing how word-of-mouth can spread in this specialty.  For this reason, Ortho-K keeps me on my toes and gives me so much more enthusiasm compared to managed-care patients.  What a difference! I try to enjoy the journey and not just fixate on the end goal.  Great work and Thank You!

Jonathan Cho, MS, OD

Thank you for your inspiration.

karen-higashi-reynolds

I think the coolest part of your presentation is that you mention your family and how important they are to you.  Of course, this is the part that I connect with.  Learning from you to make smarter decisions about your practice to benefit your family really hit home for me.

alice-tseng

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work you put into SuperCharge. Besides being informative and entertaining, it was a life changing! I have reread everything I wrote in my journal and I am supercharged to find a career I want and feel happy about. I know I can do it because you and your office has done it, and you showed me how by providing all the techniques and forms.

Once you put your mind into practicing Orthokeratology, you have to follow through with your heart & soul. Dr. Despotidis & his SuperCharge team never allowed me an excuse to quit.  They have been at my side every step of the way, always encouraging and supporting me to reach my life goals. Your workshop was something optometry school could never afford to me.

Alice Tseng, OD

 


shane-galan

I attended SuperCharge in the Spring of 2016.  The seminar was worth every penny and every ounce of thought.  Dr. Despotidis sheds the blinders off  and takes you out of your manage care frame of mind and enlightens  you to focus your time and skills towards  the private pay patient.

Sincerely,
Shane Galan OD PC

 

 


dwight-barnes

I’m definitely glad that I decided to register for SuperCharge.  I’m still sorting through the information, and I’m sure I’ll have some questions for Dr D, but wanted to pass along my sincere thanks for bringing not only his knowledge, but also his passion to the meeting.

christine-yeung-o-dIt was great to see you this past weekend and SCYP and VBD.  Thank you for a great workshop.  It’s made me think more about “the why” and put more purpose into what I do each day.

david-zuckerSupercharge fully delivers during this interactive event and Dr. D follows through on everything he preaches.  He answered every single one of my follow-up e-mails, as promised. He recommends to go ABOVE & BEYOND for patients, and he treats us, his doctor clients, with the same courtesy.

As in anything with life, most good things come with hard and effective work.  Supercharge gives you the motivation, tools, and the continued follow-up communication to help you succeed in Ortho-K or any other specialty in your practice. Do yourself a favor: go to Supercharge, and then stop at nothing to implement.

David N. Zucker, O.D.

 


 

stephen-chaseThank you for allowing me to overcome my fear and to have faith to move in a more exciting and productive fulfillment of my profession and life.  I have graded my patients as they come in.  The A’s and B’s are sent personal emails.  Many  have responded back positively.  Practice is more enjoyable.

Stephen Chase, O.D.

 

 


 

mindyI have been to your seminar twice, first time just to see the hype and boy was it good and then second time to actually buckle down! You would think why would I need to go twice but I’ve learned so much each time I’m there. We all know what we need to do to get our practice thriving but we all are afraid to put into actions our thoughts! But your seminar gave me the confidence to do what I need to do. After my first seminar I went back and within a year dropped all my visin plans (with the exception of two) and Medicaid and said “I’m done working for pennies! I just want ‘A’ patients and to hell with those ‘D’ patients!” My staff thought I was crazy but we actually increase profit that year by at least 12%! The second seminar I went becaucse I actually wanted to get my ortho K practice into gear and I have implemented lots of what you taught us. I continue to change my practice for the better each time I go to your seminar and thank you to you and your awesome seminars I have the confidence to know I can build the practice of my dreams without working so hard! Best wishes and Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! (my staff thanks you too because they don’t have to deal with those crappy vision plan patients anymore!)

julio-arroy

I attended twice before but I am intrigued and excited as I know there will be new fresh ideas I will be able to pull from the workshop. My first time was in 2008, then again in 2013, it is time to take it again. Last year we signed up an average of 25 new ortho-k patients per month, some months we surpassed the 40 patients signed-up ceiling. Vision and/or medical insurance are no longer the first source of revenue in our practice, it has been like that for a few years now. Up to 50% of all new business comes from ortho-k. Many of the systems, strategic planning and in-office protocols that we have created over the years have the base and inspiration in SuperCharge. I could say that Dr. D.’s Supercharge, the desire to succeed and a bit of hard work has given us a higher level of freedom, setting the road to our success. I am very appreciative of that. Thanks for putting this wonderful course together.

connie-vuoung

I attended SuperCharge in 2012.  Since then, my practice has changed tremendously!  My practice’s main income came from VSP and we were doing about 2-3 Ortho-K per month at that time.  Since taking Dr. D’s course we’ve grown 10 fold! Following his recommendation I dropped insurance companies and now the majority of my  income comes from Ortho-K services.  We see on average 20-30 new Ortho-K patients per month!….The information you learn from his course will change YOUR life.  I have been enjoying so much more quality time with my family.

arleen-shwartz I have attended SuperCharge twice and each time I get something new out of it, most importantly, the new goals I’ve set for my practice and my for my life. What I have learned works for building any specialty and I have used these methods over and over again. The most important thing that I learned is never give up.  Dr. D has been a constant role model for me. His generosity and obvious love for what he does and the ability to give it back is truly inspirational.

valerie-lamTHANK YOU!  I went home after the SuperCharge and told my family about how I conquered my fears and karate chopped a board!  That was the best way to wake us up and get fired up. More importantly, thank you for your advice and all the preparation that went into that workshop.  I could tell it was well planned and a lot of thought went into making it worth our while. Thanks again for your concern and compassion!  AND YOUR TIME!  In reality that is all we have that is truly valuable.

bill_potterI like Nick’s style because of his motivational ability and commonsensical approach. Most anyone can present the technical info, but Nick transcends the mundane and gets you wanting to charge up the hill and get it done!

 

 


 

jason-bolenbakerThanks for the great experience at SuperCharge. As I write this I am still jazzed from breaking the board. As I was listening to the presentation I knew I was in the right place. Thanks for helping to identify my excuses to not make my life and practice the way I want it.

kelvinAttending SuperCharge has changed my corneal reshaping practice dramatically. I attended a second time hoping to be re-energized and focused to implement more of your programs. I received that and more! I was surprised at how much the presentation and materials changed. I highly recommend SuperCharge even for those who have attended before.

tammy-wittmannI thank you for producing possibly the most important seminar of my career. SuperCharge was mind blowing in many ways. You went above and beyond the norm. You made me believe that I can be “different”.  That I can be “more”.  That I can achieve what I believed to be unachievable in this climate in our industry. The reason I believe it is because you gave us EVERYTHING we need to make it happen. You made us think about WHY we want to make changes.  You gave us the tools for HOW to make the changes, be a better leader, and hire better staff!  That alone is priceless AND you made it fun.  Dancing!  Singing!  Breaking Boards!  You are changing lives.  You bring hope and excitement.

Tammy Wittman, OD



 

peggy hartIt was extremely useful to go over the pricing and levels for the practice duringthe workshop. The next day in the office, I was able to confidently explain specialty CL treatment. Before, I was quoting low fees and miserable trying to manage the high maintenance that goes with complex fits. SuperCharge has given me the tools to definitely help my patients to the best of my abilities. I can’t wait to go to the workshop next year!

Sincerely,
Peggy Hart, OD

This event was a practice-changing experience, maybe a life changing one. We admire Dr. D’s honesty for sharing his own practice challenges. We were provided with a comprehensive roadmap to success for our specialty lens practice that we have applied to other areas of our practice

dom_wilson

I made the journey from Australia to SuperCharge. Our practice had been doing ortho-K but it hadn’t taken off in a big way. This presentation explained exactly we needed to do in order to take orthokeratology from a peripheral interest to a core part of the practice. Dr. D’s obvious passion and genuine desire to help others made it the most motivating seminar of my entire career. After the event I was provided with excellent personalized email support to help implement the new ideas.

Dr. D did a wonderful job presenting a high energy, no nonsense approach to changing your practice. He helped me see new ways to find more enjoyment in what we do while being compensated for our efforts.

The material was well organized and detailed. Dr. D’s actions during and after the seminar confirm that he is passionate about helping others. He followed up with me after the seminar and answered questions and provided support. I am currently making positive changes in my practice because of Dr D’s seminar.

I am truly passionate about Ortho-K, but I didn’t realize I was losing money until I attended SuperCharge. Dr. D gave one of the best seminars I ever attended. He has invigorated me to practice the way I want to practice. The course and materials pay for themselves many times over.

jeff-ward

SuperCharge was the best seminar I have ever attended.  Dr. D rocks! It was obvious tons of time went into preparing Supercharge and the attention to detail was simply astonishing. I’m implementing many of your ideas and am excited about taking my practice to a new level Thanks again, from one of your raving fans!

dennis-luong

The most descriptive word for SuperCharge is “powerful”. The most important thing that I learned from this course is how to make a personal commitment to carry out my marketing plan in vigor. My practice certainly benefited by attending the course.

kraig-abe

Attending SuperCharge was one of the best investments I have made in growing my corneal reshaping practice. The information provided was invaluable and I was able to implement some of Dr. D’s ideas immediately and set long term goals as well. The attention to detail was outstanding. I appreciate Dr. D’s willingness to be available to answer any questions that I have had since attending the seminar. I highly recommend SuperCharge for both new and seasoned practitioners.

Kraig Abe, OD, FAAO, FIAO

 


david-bartels

I have always considered Dr. D one of the best marketers in the optometric world. He has a wonderful story and shares his professional development with the group. After attending the seminar, I left feeling energized, excited and hopeful. With the present economic challenges we face SuperCharge is a must attend.

moshe-shwartz

Being a pediatric specialty contact lenses practice our capture rate for corneal reshaping was rather low and I kept wondering where I was going wrong. Even though Dr. D was speaking to a large group I felt that he was personally addressing me. He completely understood everything I was going through and his approach is refreshing and invigorating. A few months after the seminar my corneal refractive program had enrolled more patients in 9 months than a few years. Dr. D is a true gem to the Optometric community with his unparalleled drive, passion and knowledge. His seminar is a must for any contact lens specialty practice.

Moshe Schwartz, OD, FAAO

 


april-jasper

SuperCharge is an outstanding seminar put together and presented by Dr. D, one of the best and most experienced ortho-K experts in the industry.  You will leave this course with hands on information that you will take home and use to change your practice. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in changing their patients’ lives and changing their own life.

 

April Jasper, OD, FAAO

 


gary-gerber

If you learn from trial and error and provide the same care as your competitors, you’ll wind up with the same results. A better way would be to learn the systems Dr. D has developed for providing exceptional patient care, while thriving in private practice. Dr. D has been a client of The Power Practice for over 20 years and his success represents the reward of working smart, not hard. Attend this seminar, listen to him, take his advice, but most of all – take action, you won’t regret it!

Dr. D is a true innovator who recognized early the need to distinguish his practice from others. By taking his detailed plan on Ortho-K and implementing it in our offices, we have not only set our practice apart from others, but we have created patients for life. I recommend this seminar to anyone who wants to supercharge their practice, patients and staff!

SuperCharge was a life changing experience.  Dr. D give me all the information and organization required to take my practice to a new level.  Not only using Corneal Refractive Therapy, but also by reigniting my passion to place my heart and soul in all that I do in my practice. His secrets have changed the lives of thousand doctors and their families by giving them back profits, referrals and recognition.

Through a carefully crafted and fine-tuned presentation, Dr. D will teach you the systems you need for a specialty ortho-K practice. He will inspire you to keep focus, help you train your staff to deliver exceptional service, and show you how to market effectively. This isn’t your typical seminar that promises the world but then you are left wondering what to do next. With all the practical information, you will never regret attending this semimar.

Taking Dr. D’s seminar is one of the best things for any optometrist to move forward with success. After I attended the seminar my practice had the best growth ever, in all of my years as an optometrist.  I am looking forward to continuous growth as I implement more of Dr. D’s strategies.

thomas-doud

I have been providing ortho-K and vision therapy for about 10 years. I struggled with the management of staff and patients as they go through the process. SuperCharge put many of my concerns into a logical process that is easy to digest. The Supercharge philosophy allows doctors and staff to understand how to do things that will grow the practice and, just as importantly, make optometry more fun. Every optometrist should take this course.

 

Thomas R. Doud, O.D.

 


rafael-martinez

Thank you very much for allowing us to understand your philosophy. It was impressive to see the professionalism, friendliness and dedication of your team. For us our children are the most important and it was great to see how you solve and improve the quality of life of children with therapy called CRT. I look forward to meet again and listen to one of yourtalks and explain your philosophy.

brian-berliner

The seminar was fantastic! Dr. D provided us with a comprehensive approach to market and integrate ortho-K into our practice…..successfully! The workshop provided us with the nuts and bolts of an ortho-K practice, time management principles, multimedia ideas and an overall game plan necessary to develop an even more super (turbo charged) practice. Our practice is growing and performing more Ortho-K than ever!

paul-levine
Dr. D continues to be an inspiration to the rest of us. He is driven, focused, organized and highly successful, and so generous to share all of your “secrets for success”.  I appreciate the amount of time you put into your craft, but also the time it takes preparing lectures, webinars, documents, etc. I always learn something I didn’t know when I attend SuperCharge. I also am grateful that you took the time out of your busy day seeing patients to call me and listen to some of the issues I am dealing with in my practice. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Paul Levine, OD, FAAO, FIAO

 


eileen-lo
I have attended SuperCharge twice and have built my ortho-K practice based on many of Dr. D’s recommendations. I have used his techniques in trapping, consulting and signing up new potential patients. I learned about how to run my busy practice efficiently and systematically. The seminar  is very comprehensive and always engaging and entertaining. Dr. D is always very enthusiastic and truly interested in helping me and my practice. I highly recommend any new or established practitioners to attend  SuperCharge.

Dr. Eileen Lo, OD, FIAO

 


barbara-manion
If your practice is struggling in the current economic conditions or it’s just in the doldrums this is the course for you. Dr. D provides clear, concise, tactical changes for your practice that make sense. He provides manageable mini goals that you can implement right away and gets you to clarify your major goals and the methods to get there! I could see the results in my own practice right away. This is the best spent time and money if your looking to take your practice to the next level.

Dr Barbara Manion

 


bob-gerowitzI just wanted to take a minute to send you a long overdue Thank You. You inspired me to do my own presentation and my talk went terrific! We had 20 guests in attendance and since my presentation; I’ve started 2 patients. This year we had 55 new starts; up from last year and I owe a lot of that to the fine tuning you gave me at SuperCharge!

Rob Gerowtiz, OD, FIAO

 

 


abo-ncleThe SuperChargeYourPractice workshop is an opportunity for eye professionals to obtain the knowledge needed to start and grow a corneal reshaping practice. I had the opportunity to work alongside Dr. D and found that his office operates exactly the way he teaches! His approach is extremely effective. Health care reform is the newest and most important reason to attend. Dr. D provides you with the skills to break away from the vicious circle of trying to maintain a practice on insurance reimbursement. As an alumni of two SuperCharge workshops, I can attest I learn something new each and every time I attend. I have been working with ortho-K practices and can validate these marketing techniques work! I am looking forward to the next SuperCharge!

caroline
If you feel like your skills at presenting ortho-K to your patients could use a kick start, you should attend SuperCharge.  If you feel like you could benefit from a better organized ortho-K machine, attend this seminar.  It is four hours of nonstop ideas.  I’m not kidding, Dr. D does not take a breath.  You will come away with a ton of ideas to improve your ortho-K practice…I know, I did and I’ve attended twice.

Dr. D has been a true inspiration for my ortho-K practice. When I attended SuperCharge I not only received the knowledge, but a renewed passion for this unique segment in my practice. Each time that I went to SuperCharge the number of my ortho-K’s increased!  I don’t equate this to coincidence. Go to SuperCharge and get supercharged!!

SuperCharge is a one of kind workshop!  I was able to integrate what I learned seamlessly,  literally the next day.  Profits have been up with my new implemented strategies, and more importantly, I am very now happy and stress-free with all elements of my practice. My staff also appreciated the changes and philosophies we adopted, so thrilled in fact I brought my staff across the country to attend SuperCharge for the past few year. Thanks for opening our eyes!  We enjoy private practice and the lavish lifestyle afforded by adopting your vision and philosophies of practice.

We are a four-location practice in establishment since 1997.  In that time, we have seen vision insurance reimbursements shrink, and in the last 5 years, medical insurance reimbursements as well.  We wanted a new mode of practice independent of insurance. CRT, although around for a long time, has never really been mainstream and embraced by optometry.  The more recent studies showing the therapeutic effect of CRT on myopic children, along with our continuing struggles with insurances, prompted us to delve further into CRT.

Taking SuperCharge was a real treat, since Dr. D has effectively systematized the art of CRT and made the task of incorporating CRT in our practice much less daunting.  At this time we are ready to launch CRT in our practice and have used much of what we learned from Dr D to create our systems.

jeffery-martinI formerly ran my own private practice, ran a TLC Laser Center, and had run an office for a large Ophthalmology group.  I thought I had a good handle on how to run a practice.  In truth, I had a great handle on how my practice could run me! How can you plan success?  This was the most important concept I learned at Supercharge. You can plan success, IF you understand what builds teams , what processes support employees and helps them succeed, and why the Doctor has to lead by example, not decree. I thank Dr. D for opening my eyes to the possibilities of how much joy being in private practice can still be, even despite all the current market forces that challenge us.  Attending SuperCharge was a big Inflection Point my practice needed to become what I wanted it to be.  This is the best seminar I have ever attended, and strongly recommended.

SuperCharge has been a transformative experience for myself and my staff.  We are constantly tweaking our help guides and improving our systems and processes.  I watch videos from the seminar on your website to keep my motivation going. The funny thing is while it has helped the ortho-K side of my practice, it has  done more for the other aspects of my practice as well.  It has helped me develop my practice into the success I have always wanted.  I also appreciate the helping hand from Dr. D when I have questions or need clarifications.

I am very pleased that I attended  SuperCharge. Dr. D’s presentation was clear and well thought out. He obviously loves CRT and enthusiastically shared with us many of the systems that he utilizes within his own practice. I  put several of them to use immediately upon returning to my office. His handouts have proven to be extremely helpful in our office for not only the growth of our CRT practice, but have been useful in other areas also. I highly recommend Nick’s workshop for any practitioner who wants to provide more CRT in their practice.

I cannot say enough about SuperCharge! It has changed the way I practice and has increased the gross sales of the business. Dr. D’s philosophies and management strategies create unique business opportunities with an increase in sales almost instantly. His enthusiasm for what he does is contagious. I was captivated for the entire four hours! I would highly recommend Nick’s workshop if your practice seems to be lacking something and needs to truly be “supercharged!”

Dr. D provides “The keys to the castle” and you get to plug and play (if you are disciplined and persistent). He eliminates the need to learn “ortho-K business techniques” so all you have to do is contribute time and persistence.  Learn from, Dr. D, the best coach out there.

Meeting Dr. D at SuperCharge was a treat. There was never a dull moment.  The system is not just for ortho-K practice, I was able to implement it for the entire office. I am proud to say that I finally finished my office procedure manual because of SuperCharge. Thank you for sharing and your continuing support even after the workshop. You’re an inspiration.

I was one of the first the first practitioners certified by Paragon to fit CRT and have been doing Orthokeratology for over 25 years. My knowledge was recently clarified and reenergized by SuperCharge. The principles that I originally stated have been clarified and expanded upon with greater clarity and focus. The introduction and first three chapters on establishing a foundation, visualizing your outcome and marketing helped me rethink my approach to CRT. For me it was a rebirth into the best way to present overnight corrections and how to effectively document the visits and inform the patients. The enthusiasm of Dr. D is  most impressive. His skill, personality and belief in corneal reshaping are the keys to success. I give my highest recommendations and also my gratitude to Dr. D for his efforts in creating and presenting our profession and patient base with SuperCharge.

I loved SuperCharge and shared the major points with my staff as soon as I got back to the office. I’ve implemented some of your ideas and refined more of my own that have worked for me, based on the principles you presented. Lately, I’ve been recommending CRT with all the parents of my developing myopes. I am consistently doing two or three new fits per month, up from doing 8 all of last year before your seminar! Thanks again for all your enthusiasm and blueprint for success.

Rarely do you attend a seminar where you are not only educated but entertained. Dr. D has the incredible flair for both. I have had the opportunity to witness Nick in action over the last 10 years as I have enjoyed his lectures as part of a national practice management study group. He is completely dedicated to excellence in the art and science of CRT and is able to present it to the audience in a way that can make you laugh and cry. Yes, his expertise about the topic is second to none, but it is his passion and energy which makes attending Dr. D’s seminar something you have to put on your “must attend” list!

As a vision therapy practitioner, I appreciated Dr. D’s perspectives on how CRT and vision therapy practice management go hand in hand. Dr. D gives practical advice in applying and integrating key practice management strategies to grow and take any practice to the next level. I went home with not just ideas, but with the confidence and tools to implement marketing strategies for my CRT and VT practice immediately.

william_ferrenceI know it is hard for you to get to know your attendees on a personal level, but getting to know you as you spoke, I was surprised how much we have in common. I have come to realize, many times certain life defining events, do not happen by chance, but occur for a purpose and a reason. I believe SuperCharge is one of those events! Thank you, once again, for giving your time and energy to inspire me and to think and act differently with regard to personal and professional success.
