Cleinman Performance Network

Meeting with our peer groups are extremely important, and we always take back very practical ideas from our peer group discussions. Excellent!!
Melissa Billings, OD, Vision Park Family
The Cleinman experience provides me with a unique opportunity to gain access to the best information (that I could never have learned in optometry school) about all aspects of my business from fellow optometrists and other experts in the field.

Cleinman makes you work ‘on’ your practice, not ‘in’ your practice!


Gary [Hawk] definitely facilitates the group by helping us maintain focus – he brings excellent references from other Cleinman meetings and past personal experience.
Richard Miller, OD, Miller Eye Center
Our facilitator, Amanda [VanVoris], is awesome! Very interactive, promotes thought and guides discussion extremely well.

Solutions/Strategic Reviews

Being involved with the Cleinman organization has been the most stimulating and beneficial professional relationship I have ever had in 25 years of practice. The whole experience from benchmarking to the Strategic Review, and interacting with Al and his unique perspective, came at a time when I was both very receptive to and in a position to respond to, all this great information and stimulation. It has made the possibility of future growth seem limitless or at the least, limited only by my level of desire to grow. I look forward to many years of positive and fruitful interaction.
Rick Smart, OD, Smart EyeCare Center
I sincerely appreciate you guys. You turned my life around.
Phil Etchells, OD, Apple Valley Eyewear
I was having dinner with my parents in Carmel a couple of weeks ago, and I was relating to them the 3.5 year time line from initial conception to final occupancy of our “new world headquarters.” It gave me time to realize and remember my good fortune to be a Cleinman member. You were indeed correct that after completing the two key components of the Strategic Review, including moving my practice, I would begin to reap the benefits. All of this wouldn’t have happened otherwise. I never get tired of seeing the amazement on each my patient’s faces when they walk through the door of my new location for the first time!
Tony Giannotti, OD, Giannotti Vision Care


This experience gave me a whole new perspective on optical!
Mary Helen Krushall, Colony Eye Care Center
Cleinman is a wonderful network to learn from, that I’ve enjoyed every year.

Education Classes

This is the best experience I have had with any training in regards to optical.
Very informative and so encouraging to me as a new member of the vision industry!
This particular experience was amazing, best course I have taken to date.
Jennifer Hensley, Robbins Eye Care
It has been a wonderful experience, with new information of how to polish my sales and make the office a pleasant experience.

So wonderful that it’s 20% lecture and 80% interactive!
