Walt West, OD

Vice President – Practice Development

Prior to joining Vision Source®, I practiced for 27 years in Brentwood, TN, served as Chief Editor of Optometric Management, worked as an independent consultant and as a professional speaker, presenting to audiences in 16 countries across 5 continents. At Vision Source®, I search for any means to enrich the lives of our members, their staff, and their patients by improving the office culture, practice profitability, and the patient experience.

Most people don't know . . .

My eighth grade guidance counselor recommended I go to the Vo-Tech because I'd never make it in high school.
