Eye Own a Business Episode 20-Nutritional Supplements: Which ones, educating patients, in-house sales, and more!
Dr. Steve Vargo
February 28, 2023
Every eyecare practitioner wants what’s best for the patient in the chair. So, why do we sometimes stop short of providing the best care? In this episode with Dr. Selina McGee and Zac Denning of Science Based Health, we explore the role of nutrition and nutritional supplements in the care of patients, and address some of the most common reasons ODs struggle to make this a more meaningful part of their practice.
Perhaps the reason is that you’re not comfortable “selling” products in the office, or you lack the time to discuss these options with patients, or you struggle getting your staff to embrace their role in communicating this treatment option to patients. All of that and more is addressed in this interview. A lot of the ideas presented are not just applicable to supplements, but any area of your practice that you desire to grow.
