FYidoctors Makes Historic Expansion into US Market
FYidoctors announces that it has officially expanded its geographic operations into the US marketplace with the addition of six eye care clinics in California.
The foray marks a major company milestone as the first time FYidoctors has added new operations outside of Canada.
“We are absolutely proud to mark this historic chapter in our company history,” says Dr. Alan Ulsifer, FYidoctors’ chairman and CEO. “In 2008, our company launched with the intent of becoming Canada’s largest doctor-led eye care provider. Today, we are exceeding that vision by marking a historic foray into the most populous state in America. The welcoming of our new business units in California ushers an exciting and noteworthy time and makes us the largest doctor-led network of clinics in North America.”
To the network, FYidoctors welcomes optometry clinics located throughout California, in key consumer markets including Los Angeles, Mountain View, Northridge, Sun Valley, Roseville and San Jose.
The US operations will be led by VP FYidoctors and Chief Strategy Officer Dr. David Redman, who was also named 2018 AOA Optometrist of the Year. Dr. Aaron Lech has been named to the role of Chief Medical Advisor and will oversee all health-related aspects of the business. The pair are tasked to ensure FYidoctors’ US operations, in keeping with Canadian operational standards.
Dr. David Redman, VP and Chief Strategy Officer, FYidocors, told Optik, “the new clinics will eventually be transitioned to the FYidoctors banner, brand and business platform, ensuring all their learnings are leveraged as FYidoctors continues to grow in the weeks and months ahead.”
“I am thrilled to play a role in this historic expansion,” continued Dr. Redman. “And I look forward to helping grow FYidoctors’ in the US market. Our company’s value proposition for clinics who wish to leverage the power of a family of providers while maintaining doctor-led operations presents a major upside for many operators. Our future is bright.”
