Tim Ioannides has done pretty well for himself over the years but the 48-year-old founder and CEO of Treasure Coast Dermatology had to start from the bottom just like anyone else. Now that he’s been in the medical field for over two decades, he has recently given advice to aspiring entrepreneurs who are looking to follow in his footsteps. He told them to always pursue their dreams and to make sure they’re passionate about whatever field they go into or else they will not feel satisfied with their career. He learned this and many other lessons when he was excelling in his classes during medical school at the University of Miami. While he was performing well academically, the university offered him an internship too tantalizing for him to refuse.
After completing the internship, Tim Ioannides graduated with honors as he prepared for his future. He was offered his first postdoc role helping out in the front office of a dermatology practice and shadowing the other dermatologists to see how they interact with the patients. Of course, it wasn’t long before he realized that they cared more about making a quick buck than actually helping the patients get better so he left and decided to start his own business. They take great pride in the fact that they try and foster positive relationships with each of their patients so they can better diagnose and treat any conditions they may come across during consultations.
He also personally sees every patient so they can discuss the best possible course of treatment for each individual. One of their points of pride is using pens or pencils to jot down their notes so they can focus more on their patients instead of staring at their screens. So we hope they will have continued success going forward.
