Vision Quest – The Administrative Advantage™ Buying Group

Vision Quest has been a member of Advantage Administration’s MSO buying group for one year and we’ve taken advantage of the program for many purchases throughout the practice and ambulatory surgery center.

We have incorporated a BOOMERANG™ patient retention program with Opticall, which has […]

It is with extreme pleasure that I provide a letter of reference for Byrd Evans. Our practice began its conversion to EMR in 2013, quite an undertaking, particularly in a practice of our size.

Mark J. Piotrowski, M.D.

To Whom It May Concern: We quickly learned the benefit of having an outsider to come into the practice every +/- three or so years to evaluate overall efficiency.

Re: Advantage Administration, Inc. Dear Mr. Carroll: I would like to personally thank you for helping the Florida Eye Institute when our practice was in a state of turmoil.

John D. Sheppard, M.D., M.M.Sc.

Dear Joe, Ten months have passed since Advantage Administration passed the baton to our own rejuvenated in-house management team.

James Vander, M.D.

Richard E. Mills, D.O.

Eight years ago my Ophthalmology practice was facing problems in the areas of management and finances. I had a busy, growing practice, but sometimes was unable to pay myself.

I would highly recommend the Advantage Administration, Inc. team. When my Administrator of 11 years moved on, I was struggling to learn the ropes of running my practice again.
