For the past several years, I have acted as the President of Epic Teleradiology. Based out of Leesburg, Florida, my company offers cost-effective radiology services from American Board of Radiology-certified professionals. Additionally, I serve as Medical Director for Epic’s two affiliated facilities: Lake Surgery & Endoscopy Center and Endosurg Outpatient Center, LLC. Both of these firms hold Joint Commission accreditation, and they were the first in Florida’s Lake County to obtain this honor. Furthermore, Epic earned a Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval in recognition of its high-quality care and skilled employees.
On behalf of Epic, I regularly visit the Middle East to maintain connections and fulfill our contracts with organizations in Cairo and Dubai, such as the Saudi Arabian Oil Co. and the King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre. However, Epic makes its services available to any group in need of imaging analysis. With a 24-hour turnaround for final diagnosis and a rush option, the facility reads data from ultrasounds, PET scans, and nuclear medicine. Soon, Epic will provide cardiovascular imaging to its clients. Compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine), Epic can receive and interpret documents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
