Vision Source's Ellisor and West Are Guests on Feb. 13 ‘Power Hour’

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J.—Glenn Ellisor, OD, the founder of Vision Source and Walt West, OD,, Vision Source's vice president of practice development, are the featured guests on the Wednesday, Feb. 13 edition of "The Power Hour," the free weekly online radio talk show hosted by Gary Gerber, OD, founder of The Power Practice, the practice management company.

"Vision Source is optometry's oldest and biggest doctor alliance. With thousands of members, what makes Vision Source special and why do doctors join?" asked Gerber. "Why not just join a buying group or negotiate pricing deals on your own? Why not just attend trade shows and local meetings for education and camaraderie? Hear what Glenn and Walt predict for the future of the industry and why they think doctors will struggle if they do not join an alliance. It's sure to be a thought-provoking discussion."
