Mr. Jeff King
Breaking into the field of Durable Medical Equipment in 2010. Jeff has experienced the entire life cycle of an external orthosis. In 2010 he serviced and maintained DME programs for local orthopedic surgeons. Delivering CPM and ambulatory equipment post operatively to fitting and providing Durable Medical Equipment, inspired the foundation of the patient first approach to design. For the next 4 years he would be be working directly with patients on fitting and application of orthosis. In 2014, he worked with clinics directly managing DME programs from the clinical side. This would broaden his knowledge to a clinical perspective on patient reception, insurance contracts, filing claims and revenue collection. He is now a staple in the North Dallas area consulting and managing multiple DME programs for local clinics.
