VGP Elite members have complimentary access to a Practice Coach, a fundamental tool to help practice leaders with expert support, goal setting, and accountability. VGP Practice Coaches work directly with Practice Owners, Practice Managers, and other members of the leadership team remotely. Your Practice Coach can meet with you or your leadership team to discuss any of the major areas of management within your practice. During these meetings, you can review your P&L, budget, discuss personnel issues, role play, discuss ways to solve interpersonal disputes, review your inventory process and procedures, help create and implement marketing strategies, and much more!

“VGP practice coaches have really focused my business. They provide so much feedback and experience. Everyone needs a coach, there is no reason to go this alone. I highly recommend the VGP practice coaches to anyone owning or operating a veterinary practice.”

—Dr. Richard Gesell, Acton Veterinary Group

“Veterinary Growth Partners coaching staff has been an invaluable part of our growth as a hospital. The insight shared and direction given by our practice coach has assisted us in creating a positive, collaborative team - a culture that many hospitals would be envious of!”

—Alexandra Juriga, Veterinary Dental Center
