What our clients are saying!
The Power Practice® started working with me from the inception of my practice. I opened cold turkey in 2001. Since that time they’ve been with me every step of the way.
Their wisdom on marketing and just day to day operations has been indispensable. They are always available for my questions and respond promptly whether it is by email or phone. I would venture to say this would be hard to find elsewhere. Overall I have been very satisfied with my choice in using The Power Practice® and would highly recommend others to do the same.

I’ve been a solo practitioner since 1989 and a Power Practice® client since 2003. I do regret not hiring The Power Practice® before seeing my first patient years ago. I spent the firs 14 years of my career trying to build an optometric practice on my own.
Sure, there are practice management books out there, but who has the time to read them and hope that the methods really work. Optometry school did a great job of teaching me how to be a good clinician but a terrible job of preparing me for what it takes to run a successful practice. Needless to say, the first 14 years of practice has been fraught with mistakes and omissions; I paid the price for these that could have been easily avoided.
Working with The Power Practice® has been a real pleasure. I’m guessing that I must have sent them over 1,000 emails to date and, never once, have they failed to respond promptly and with concern. They are committed to helping you build your practice and will expend considerable energy along with sage advice in doing so. They are full of endless proven creative ideas that will give your practice a large edge in your community.
If you think that not hiring The Power Practice® is money saved, you are wrong. By not hiring them you will ultimately spend more money and waste years like I did by using the trial-and-error method. You will ultimately recoup your costs so hiring The Power Practice®.
If you are a new practitioner I highly recommend using them to establish your career on the right path. If you have been in practice for a number of years already, I also highly recommend The Power Practice® to take your established practice to other levels. Please feel free to call or email me if I can be of further help to you.

I began my optometric career working for commercial type chains. After getting burnt out, I decided the only way to go was to open up cold – this was in 1990. I had hired various consultants and had some growth but began to stagnate. In 1995 I felt it was time to get some significant consulting to change the flat pattern of growth. At the time I was in an 850 sq. foot office and had a staff of three (2 full time and one part time).
I researched the possible consultants and narrowed it down to three – Kattouf, Williams and The Power Practice®. With regard to Kattouf, references told me that he used a lot of forms and not much else. Many also commented that there was no follow up. Some doctors commented that he tried to push his way of practice on the OD instead of allowing the OD to improve the existing practice and style.
With Williams I heard few positives and mostly heard that their methods were “canned” and that follow-up was also poor. Williams is a big group and I felt that individual attention may be lost at times.
Needless to say, I chose The Power Practice® to consult with my practice. The thing that appealed to me about them was that Gary, the founder is a real practicing OD that lives, eats, sleeps and breaths optometry (and that’s the truth! Just ask any OD in northern NJ. Gary has the best practice in the area and is always ahead of the pack -He never ceases to amaze me!)
They came to my practice and went through the process of collecting data, diagnosing the problem areas and coming up with an extensive treatment/management plan. I had explosive growth immediately and was able to pay the consulting bill in less than three months. They all have a keen sense of customer service, patient flow, making lasting impressions on each patient, utilizing technicians through delegation, recall and last but not least staying considerably profitable.
I think that we all are creatures of habit — but sometimes we develop bad habits. It takes experts like those at The Power Practice® to see these bad habits and change them into good ones.
They also stay on top of the ever changing playing field of optometry and finds new ways to win the game. They are always available to speak with and continue to develop new plans of action.
The bottom line – my practice has nearly tripled since consulting with them. I now own my own building, (which is extremely difficult to do in these parts with limited real estate) have a staff of eight including a full time optician, and a beautiful new office. Lastly, I will be hiring an associate sometime this year.
Without sounding like a canned testimonial, I owe much of my success to The Power Practice®. If I had to do it all over again, I wish I would have hired them in the first place.

After starting with Dr. Gerber and the Power Practice® team in 2003, we were able to learn valuable managerial and organizational skills that turned our desire to improve patient care and increase profitability into a reality.
Before the Power Practice®, we tended to spin our wheels by relying on our set ways of running an Optometric practice which caused our growth to stagnate. With Dr. Gerber’s guided assistance and the detailed Power Practice action plan, we learned many new ways to improve our practice through enhanced patient care which greatly increased our profitability.
Our detailed action plan is unique for our office and not a cookie cutter format that we were supposed to try to fit into such as other consulting firms sell. We tried one of those to no avail – we ended up with an increased level of frustration knowing we wasted a large amount of money and barely made any profitable changes to our practice.
The Power Practice® understands that each practice is unique and they work to make sure that we are meeting the goals of our individual practice and keeping up with our plan.
Along the way we have hit some road blocks, but they have always been there to help us through it and take another step forward. The Power Practice® has turned an overwhelming and seemingly impossible transformation into a day-to-day reality. I, as one of the doctors in the practice, have learned that if I break a task into components with feasible steps, I actually can still be a doctor as well as change the organizational structure of my practice to meet the goals that we have set.
I can’t say enough positives about Dr. Gerber and the Power Practice® team. We are still evolving and learning new improvements every day and I am very reassured that the Power Practice will be there to assist us with this transformation.
