September 2011 Event
At the SAIO event in September of 2011, our speakers included Dr. Wilson, Dr. Hayes and Dr. Folwarski. Dr. Wilson owns a partnership in a successful private practice in the Kansas City area. He spoke with us about the importance of Electronic Health Records (EHRs)/Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), how to choose an EHR system, and the financial aspects of setting up/switching a practice from a paper practice to an electronic one. Dr. Hayes and Dr. Folwarski are both graduates of UMSL from the class of 2011 and were going through the process of opening up a private practice in Wildwood, MO which is just outside of St. Louis. They spoke to us about the steps that they have gone through to set up their practice including creating a business plan, getting a business loan, choosing a location, and finding equipment.
Drs. Kim Folwarski and Christy Hayes have officially opened their private practice, Wildwood Vision Specialists! They held a Grand Opening celebration and trunk frame show on Thursday, August 30th, 2012! Congratulations on the new practice! To see more, take a look at their website!
