The Biltmore Beacon, a local publication in the Asheville area teamed up with the Young Professionals of Asheville to recognize 40 rising stars in the business community under the age of 40. The recipients of this designation were recoginzed at a gala at the Grove Park Inn on May 10th, 2012. We are proud to announce that Dr. Larry Golson, OD was honored as one of the 40 Under 40 for the Class of 2012! The following excerpt was taken from the Biltmore Beacon’s publication.
“Larry Golson tells budding entrepreneurs, “Put yourself out there and know at some level you are going to be successful. You have to want it.” Larry is a living example of that philosophy. His Envision Eyecare office can be likened to a Starbucks- ethically pleasing, good music, coffee, water and tea. Larry wants clients to feel like they are at a spa and, when they leave, feel like they’ve had the best experience they’ve ever had in health care –probably why 2,500 clients make the trip to Asheville from a 2 hour radius. Larry matriculated to the University of Georgia and Southern College of Optometry in Memphis. Born and raised in Atlanta, his love of the mountains made Asheville a natural when he was ready to have his own practice. His business has won countless awards for innovation. But Larry says his team of employees is what sets him apart. He has given back to the community through the downtown Rotary Club, Asheville Area Arts council, Big Brother, Asheville Green Works and Executive Associates of Greater Asheville.”
Congratulations to Dr. Golson for an amazing 4 years of excellent eye health care in Asheville!
