“I hadn’t heard of US Endo, but is sounded like something that would give us options and possibly rejuvenate us a little bit,” he said. “I was really interested in experiencing camaraderie with other doctors, exchanging ideas, and finding new motivations for myself and my team”.
Dr. Putnam partnered with US Endo in August 2021 and then attended his first Vision Summit, our annual Partners’ meeting, in October. He expected to establish positive relationships with his new business partners, but didn’t expect to be so inspired by the experience. “It was the most profound experience of my career. I left the Summit bursting with motivation and new ideas that I could not wait to share with my team,” Dr. Putnam said. “I knew something big was about to happen. I didn’t really have a specific goal. I just knew we were going to take a huge step toward our true potential.”
Dr. Putnam called a team meeting upon arrival back in South Carolina and was blown away by his team’s interest in improving efficiencies to increase access to care and to get more patients out of pain each day. It didn’t take long to see a significant impact. Within a two-month time span, and without working more hours, Dr. Putnam and his team were able to increase the number of patients they could help each day by 50 percent over the previous year. In his third month after the Summit, Dr. Putnam and his team had dialed in their new motivations and efficiencies resulting in a staggering 103 percent improvement – more than doubling the number of patients they were able to help. “We are absolutely jamming! We are helping twice as many patients each day and my team and I have never been so motivated and happy. We’re having fun again,” Dr. Putnam said.
“US Endo has completely and utterly changed my life. My experience so far has simply been phenomenal. It has been an awakening – a resurrection of my career and passion for this specialty.”
