    I am opening an optical retail store. How to find a doctor?

    I am opening an optical retail store in Tennessee. I want a doctors practice in my building. What would you recommend on doing to find an optometrist that wanted his own practice, but to be within a busy retail store? Thanks so much!

    You could contact the schools of Optometry and see if you can find a recent graduate that hasn't found a job yet. There will probably be quite a bit since you live in a state that has an Optometry school.

    I don't know the laws in your state, but in the state of Indiana you can contract with independent Doctors of Optometry. Guarantee them a set amount with incentives and you might get one to bite on. I'm sure the Optometry school there has a job placement site. Good luck!
