As the founder and CEO of Treasure Coast Dermatology, Tim Ioannides is currently a shining example of how to be a successful dermatologist but things weren’t always going so smoothly for him. So how has he managed to do so well for himself over the years?
Well it all began when he first matriculated at the University of Miami School of Medicine.He decided he wanted to go into the field of dermatology and excelled in his courses. During this time, he completed a prestigious internship and ended up graduating with honors.
Upon receiving his medical degree, he took his first postdoc position in the private sector working in the clerical department and shadowing doctors to get an idea of how they interact with their patients and treat their conditions.
Soon afterward, however, he realized they were only interested in making money rather than helping the patients get better. As such, he ended up leaving the practice and decided to open his own office where the patients would get treated with dignity and respect.
One of the ways they set themselves apart from many other practices is the fact they attempt to establish a rapport with them as they believe this will help them better diagnose and subsequently treat their conditions. Additionally, he makes each of his employees take notes by hand so they can focus on the wellbeing of their patients in lieu of simply staring at their screens during their consultations.
One of the books he recommends to future aspiring entrepreneurs is entitled how to win friends and influence people as he believes it lets people see things from a different perspective and helps people to succeed in the business world. In the future, he hopes to be a part of the team that helps cure skin cancer.
