“Kay has worked with our practice since its inception. She been instrumental in helping us achieve the vision I had for establishing an elective vision correction center. Elective Med offers a particular asset to smaller private practices, like mine, in terms of their very sophisticated market analysis and advertising which often times is only affordable for larger ophthalmic practices.”

EMM has impressive skills in two distinct areas: Practice marketing (including PPC, SEO, campaign management, inbound call handling, call-to-consult conversion optimization), and practice administration (covering staff issues, compensation, cost containment, scheduling, patient flow, time management and the like.) I think this unusual hybrid of skills does not exist with other consultants serving the elective vision niche – usually they sort either into marketing consultants or practice management advisors, but not both. The value received from her company is very high.
