The need to impact peoples’ lives positively is what drove Tim Ioannides to switch practices from practicing cosmetic dermatology to performing medical dermatology. With the current rise of cases of skin cancers and skin disorders, Tim Ioannides wants to help as many people as possible with their skin conditions. Cosmetic procedures are more popular among dermatologists since they attract a large number of customers. The desire to look a certain way or like somebody drives many people to seek cosmetic procedures. Therefore, for a dermatologist who is after money, cosmetic procedures are a lucrative venture. For Tim Ioannides, it was not about the money but the fulfillment that came with helping people who need the surgery.
To practice medical dermatology safely with no disturbances, Tim Ioannides had to open his institution. He named it Treasure Coast Dermatology, an institution which is now a leading center in field. Treasure Coast dermatologists perform medical procedures only. Some of the procedures offered by Treasure Coast include treatment of skin cancers and disorders, removal of tumors, biopsy, and dermatological education. The education creates awareness about skin cancers and teaches people how to take care of their skins. By educating people, Tim Ioannides is reducing the number of cases of skin disorders.
Tim Ioannides admits to making mistakes in the past that he learned from. Being a first-time business owner, Tim was oblivious of better ways of solving office conflicts, and this cost him a lot. Tim Ioannides focused more on an individual’s talents and capabilities, overlooking the negative attributes that affected people around them. Tim Ioannides now know better as he focuses more on teamwork than an individual. If any of his workers is changing others around them due to their attitude, Tim has learned to correct them despite how good they are. Teamwork is a core part of Treasure Coast Dermatology and has contributed to its success.
