In 1985 an ophthalmology colleague and I joined our practices in the small town of Chehalis, Washington to form this organization. When I became the sole owner 10 years later, one of my first actions was to ask God to be my Senior Business Partner.
The journey has been exciting and rewarding, but not without stress and seemingly insurmountable difficulties. However, countless challenges have resolved when I leaned heavily on God. What I perceive as major predicaments often turn into great blessings.
The neat thing about my Senior Business Partner is that He knows the future. Knowing that He sees what lies ahead removes a huge load of worry from me. Every day I ask for His guidance—as do many of our doctors, staff and management team. Regardless of where He takes this organization, I trust His judgment.
I don’t wish to impose my beliefs on anyone but am often asked about my faith. I am a Seventh-day Adventist Christian. If you are interested or just curious, I welcome you to click here to learn more.
Thank you for trusting us with your care,
Robert Ford, MD
