Whether you see it or not, he has a primary care component to his practice - he does not just do VT and BV work. His office is no different from any other established, high volume, high revenue office that's owned by an OD who's over 50. If you love VT and want to do it after graduation, have at it. I'd even go as far as to say that you'll probably have an easier time finding a job if you're willing to move since hardly anyone wants anything to do with VT after they graduate. But just don't go into it thinking that you'll be able to duplicate what he's done - it just can't happen anymore. That's how people get deceived. They see what's out there right now and they think that's the optometry they're signing up for. It's not.
how...how did you know that? lol yes I was speaking of Dr. Valenti as an example of someone who appears to have specialized. And I completely agree, I doubt anyone could achieve what he has done in the field.
