Dr. Scott Colonna and Dr. John Ormando are the owners of Westminster Eyecare Associates and Uppercut Practice Development Professionals. For more than sixteen years, they have directly performed over 300,000 eye exams, growing their practice from $600,000 in annual revenue to in excess of $5 million. Having never experienced a year with negative growth, the doctors have achieved double-digit growth in virtually every one of those years.

After developing a highly trained team of over fifty employees, comprised of doctors, managers, techs, and other administrative professionals, Dr. Colonna and Dr. Ormando no longer personally perform exams or oversee the day-to-day minutia of the practice.

Interestingly, their practice is located in Rhode Island, the least-business-friendly state in the country. Unfortunately, Rhode Island also offers extremely low insurance-plan reimbursements to eye-care providers. Nevertheless, the doctors have been able to conquer these obstacles, and more, to create an unrivaled business through exceptional training and incredible office culture, maintaining their position in the top 1 percent of highest-grossing optometry practices in the country. As the creators of Uppercut Academy, the first online interactive virtual training platform for eye-care professionals, the doctors are proud to share their invaluable expertise in culture, accountability, training, and growth with you, the independent eye-care practitioner.

“Their technician training series gave me everything I needed.”

Uppercut Academy made it possible for me to jump right into the optical field after 20+ years in dental practice management. Their technician training series gave me everything I needed to jumpstart my transition, and now they’re the foundation of our training pipeline. We used to send our new hires for two weeks of paid training, and now we get training tailored to our needs, on our schedule, in our facility, and at a much better cost.

“…the guidance they have given us has been PRICELESS”

It’s been about two months since we’ve onboarded with Uppercut. We thought we had the roadmap to success, we thought we know how to do it until we got in touch with Uppercut. Since then, the guidance they have given us has been PRICELESS.

“…things have changed for the better.”

The culture in our office wasn’t the greatest before hiring Uppercut. After implementing the suggestions that Uppercut suggested, I can honestly say things have changed for the better. Our office culture now flows and the employees’ communication is better with not only just the patients but with each other as well!

I had the opportunity to see him speak at an event this weekend.

He is amazing – after the event I was “mind-full” and he took the time to answer my questions- his compassion and knowledge extend beyond his medical practice and to mine! Dr Scott your applied knowledge is certainly a cut above the rest!

“We have seen at least a 40% increase in Optical Sales…”

Jason Clute has provided us (an already massively successful location) with a huge surge in optical business by taking a deeper dive into our opportunities and where we were currently successful. Working with Jason, we created a highly motivational and lucrative bonus and spiff program for the practice. We were able to completely absorb those payments by Uppercuts ability to drastically lower our cost of goods and increase our revenue per patients. We have seen at least a 40% increase in Optical Sales the last few months over prior years!
