Not many people can say they went from being a med student to having their own thriving practice in just a few short years but Tim Ioannides is one of the few who can. Many people are wondering how he managed to attain such a level of success but he assures them it didn’t happen overnight. From a young age, he knew he wanted to go into the field of dermatology so, when he was accepted into the University of Miami med school, that was his area of focus. He was offered a challenging but prestigious internship which he accepted and eventually went on to graduate with honors. Afterwards, he stayed at the university for a few years so he could complete his residency.
Upon the completion of his academic career, he accepted his first postdoc position working in the private sector for a dermatology practice. He did clerical work in the front office and helped the doctors tend to the patients so he could get a feel for it. Soon after, however, he quickly realized their corporate greed was interfering with their ability to properly treat the patients and he left so he could open his own business where the patients are met with kindness and compassion. They do this by having all of the employees take notes by hand so they can concentrate on the patients rather than their screens. Dr. Tim also makes it a point to personally see each and every person who comes through his practice to discuss the best treatments.
For those looking to get into entrepreneurship, he recommends they read the book how to win friends and influence people as he thinks it has valuable insight into how to run your own business. He also hopes to one day discover a cancer cure.
