Oh, it’s nearly the most wonderful time of the year! This holiday season, we’re continuing our tradition of looking back on our most-read practice design stories of the year. Here’s part one.
When Jaclyn Benzoni, OD, MS, FAAO, found her new home in Long Island to be too long of a commute to New York City, she began looking at a private practice closer to home—one that she would end up taking over in 2016. The practice, Merrick Family Eye Care, has an interesting ownership model. She and a colleague—Lori Landrio, OD—have different practices in the same space. They share a front desk, equipment, and optical and split the rent, but each her own staff. Read Dr. Benzoni’s story.

She knew that neither that life nor one sitting behind a research desk felt like the right fit. Read Dr. Adema’s story.
