BIZNOTES: Therapy clinic opens, dental practice closes

Two biznotes from the health-care world:

NOW OPEN: ATI Physical Therapy has opened a second West Seattle location. First one is in Westwood Village; second one, on the east side of outer Jefferson Square, at 41st and Alaska. Their announcement says they offer physical therapy “for sports and orthopedic injuries” as well as “vestibular therapy.”

NOW CLOSED: We checked on the status of Glo Dental Studio, which opened at 3295 SW Avalon Way two years ago, after hearing from two patients who had shown up for appointments only to find the door locked and the voicemail full. The practice’s website is no longer working. Further searching turned up a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by proprietor Dr. Ronald Winn, who sought to have the case dismissed because, a document says:

Despite exploring every option available, cash flow has become insufficient to continue operating the dental practice. As of June 25, 2019, the practice has closed.

The case docket indicates the dismissal was granted a week and a half ago.

    Here’s to hoping that cursed spot gets a laser tag place!

      Holy cow what a great idea! Though with zero parking in the area, there’s no kind of business I can imagine that would actually survive.

        The building has dedicated commercial parking.

      Or a place where you can smash things!

    So a month after the practice closes two patients show up for their appointments and then tip off WSB?  If nobody notices your business is closed for a month that explains the cash flow problems.

    Really, how does one fail in dentistry?

      Seriously.  Thanks for the chuckle.

    cash flow has become insufficient to continue operating the dental practice. ” per the above.Perhaps the cash was being diverted to other needs the dentist has & therefore they didn’t have sufficient cash to operate their business?  

Sorry, comment time is over.
