On this episode, Karen talks with Dr. Darren Waters, owner and Medical Director of Greater Mobile Urgent Care. Dr. Waters discusses the challenges and opportunities that presented themselves to his Urgent Care practices when the COVID virus and lockdowns disrupted his normal clinical operations. Without laying off any employees, GMUC weathered low patient numbers, massive changes to the daily operations, and all the business unknowns to find new revenue streams while still delivering quality healthcare during a pandemic. Then Dr. Waters gives us the 411 on the new COVID vaccines being distributed throughout the U.S. Plus, Karen talks with Dr. Waters about his sharp entrepreneur instincts, partnering with a family member, and the most challenging issues at GMUC since March of 2020.

– In a business crisis, you’ve got to find another niche, another way to get by. You have to be very fluid and adaptive.
