Tim Ioannides’s interest in dermatology inspired his parents, who taught him that fulfillment is found through helping others. His parents were well known in the medical field through their contributions focused on changing lives rather than fame. After medical residency, Tim started dermatology practice in Miami, offering cancer screening but focusing on cosmetic procedures. Tim felt unfulfilled during practice since he considered skin cancer as the most preventable yet most common. Tim felt he was not doing enough to fight the condition.
Tim Ioannides moved to Port St. Lucie, where he soon discovered it had the second-highest skin cancer rate, contributed to by an aging population with little to protect their skins from the sun and seaside location. Tim established a business that covered all aspects of skin cancer. He acknowledges his team of nurses as part of the success of his organization. Tim also believes that patient care is possible by maintaining a close-knit team, eliminating confusion at the workplace, and maintaining caution when interacting with pharmaceutical representatives.
Tim Ioannides has avoided computerized record-keeping as a strategy of improving business. He believes in effective communication by giving patients undivided attention to understand their communication fully. Patient satisfaction gives him ultimate fulfillment and joy when they detect cancerous growth early. He also finds fulfillment through educating others about skin protection methods, especially after exposure to the sun. Tim considers the beach fun, although it poses more danger of direct exposure to the sun’s UV rays, increasing chances of skin cancer, educating people on sun avoidance tactics, and proper sunscreen application.
