Dr. Tim Ioannides is the owner and founder of Treasure Coast Dermatology in Florida. His private practice has five locations in Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce, Stuart, Vero Beach, and Sebastian. He earned a medical degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine and held a medical internship at the University of Florida School of Medicine Health Science Center. He went back to the University of Miami School of Medicine, where he completed his residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Dr. Tim Ioannides discovered his desire to perform medical dermatology while working for a cosmetic surgeon. This led him to start his own medical practice. He recently gave an interview on Ideamensch.com to discuss his experience as an entrepreneur and what he does to be successful.
Like most entrepreneurs, Dr. Tim Ioannides starts his day early and does a quick workout, then helps his wife with their children. Once he is at work, he spends his day coordinating with his staff, seeing patients, dictating notes, and conducting research.
One thing that separates Dr. Tim Ioannides from others in the medical profession is that he doesn’t use electronic medical records. He feels that staring at a computer screen to look up a patient’s medical records takes time away from making personal connections with the patient through eye contact and engagement. He says that many patients come to him not feeling very confident about their skin conditions. By focusing on the patients instead of a computer screen, he can help to build their confidence about what he can do for them.
Dr. Tim Ioannides extends this personal care beyond his medical office. He takes a proactive approach in his relationship with his patients’ by writing them letters. He says this adds humanity to the medical field, which in many cases can feel impersonal.
