Entrepreneurship in the world of medicine can take on many forms. For Tim Ioannides, M.D., becoming an entrepreneur changed the course of his career forever. As the founder of Treasure Coast Dermatology, Ioannides has spent the last 15 years providing his loyal clientele with expert medical dermatology services. With a focus on treating clients proactively through preventative education and skincare, Ioannides sets the bar in the practice of medical dermatology practices.
Exploring Entrepreneurship and Medicine
As an entrepreneur and medical professional, Ioannides has a unique perspective that most business owners don’t share. In addition to his business prowess, Ioannides is a highly skilled dermatologist as he earned his medical degree from the University of Miami, completed an intense internship at the University of Florida, and finished a residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Tim Ioannides began his foray into entrepreneurship after cutting his teeth in dermatology working for a plastic surgeon. This side of dermatology showed him the industry’s excessive focus on cosmetic procedures. This was all the inspiration Ioannides needed to pursue his own entrepreneurial dreams by starting his medical dermatology business: Treasure Coast Dermatology.
Building Treasure Coast Dermatology
Dr. Ioannides holds that his business success comes from his commitment to stellar customer service and focus on bringing a sense of humanity to his field. Ioannides initially grew Treasure Coast Dermatology’s clientele with the relationships he established working at the cosmetic surgery practice. Continuing this practice of growing a loyal following by connecting to his customers, Ioannides often writes letters to clients to thank them for their business.
The success of Treasure Coast Dermatology can also be attributed to the way Ioannides runs his practices. Never one to use physician extenders, Ioannides always sees every patient himself. During his time with his clients, Ioannides focuses on truly listening and connecting with his patients by recording voice notes rather than using a computer. Always giving 100% of himself to his patients and his practice, Ioannides’ continued success certainly comes as no surprise.
