Ohio SBDC Helps Doctor Open Her Own Clinic
Ohio Development Services Agency.
Dr. Jenny Wariboko worked in urgent care clinics in the Dayton and Cincinnati areas and had a dream of starting her own clinic. The Ohio Small Business Development Center at The Entrepreneurs Center in Dayton helped that dream become a reality, and now Dr. Wariboko is the medical director and owner of First Priority Urgent Care in Trotwood.
“I went to school for medicine, treating people,” Dr. Wariboko says. “I had that down cold. The business aspect was the thing you have to learn. They really don’t teach you that in med school.”
That’s where Adrienne Heard comes in. She’s a consultant at the SBDC at The Entrepreneurs Center.
“We helped her think through competition, marketing,” Heard says. “We helped her think through financing. We lead you through the process of becoming a successful entrepreneur, because it’s their dream. I just want to help it come true.”
