An Interview With Owner Shelly Baker
Shelly first opened the doors to Advanced Laser Clinic back in 2003. Shelly reflects on the growth, the experiences, and the patients she adores. Below is an excerpt from a sit down interview done with Shelly about the passion she continues to have for Advanced Laser Clinic even after all these years.
Describe what your typical day looks like working here.
Shelly: “Patients always come first, paperwork always second, and I’m always behind.”
What do you want people to think of when they think of Advanced Laser Clinic?
Shelly: “My most important goal is to walk into the door and it’s homey and welcoming to not only myself, but all patients as well. And most of all, we’re honest—our integrity is very important to us. I just want them to feel important and that we really care about who they are and what problems they have no matter what it is.”
What are your goals for the clinic?
Shelly: “The goal for the clinic is to keep growing, I want to see this business succeed because I know the benefits it gives to anyone who walks through the door. Whether they need laser hair removal for unwanted hair or sclerotherapy to treat spider veins, I know the treatments we perform make people feel better about themselves and we change peoples’ lives.”
If you could go back and do it again would you still make the decision to open Advanced Laser Clinic?
Shelly: “Where I’m sitting at today, all these years later—definitely yes. I’ve loved every minute of it. I always tell my kids, or anybody else, it’s not about the money, it’s about loving what you do. And honestly, in all these years walking through the doors, there’s not one day I didn’t like being here. I love my patients.”
