I am proud to announce that Scott Carson has joined the Board of Directors at DOTmed.com, Inc. Everyone in the company is excited to have him on board.
Scott Carson is a veteran of the medical device industry for 24 years.
He and I have been friends for 15 years.
Quest Imaging Solutions provides all major brands of surgical c-arms (new and refurbished) and carries a large inventory for purchase or rent. With over 20 years in the medical equipment business we can help you fulfill your equipment needs
In 1996, Scott founded US Medical which became the first internet distributor of previously owned capital medical equipment. This company was named among Inc's 500 fastest growing companies. In 2002, he founded Med1 Online, a medical supply company of reconditioned equipment as well as capital medical equipment. Since then he has started a number of companies in the lasers and aesthetics industry.
Scott has had a positive influence on DOTmed and I wish I had a dollar for every time that he has made a suggestion as to how we can improve our online offering. He has the ability to zero in on what is important and what is not and he has a tremendous reputation and far reaching connections in healthcare.
Scott promises to help DOTmed grow so that we can help our users make more and better connections.
I asked Scott why he was willing to serve on our board and he said a few things:
"As a reseller, DOTmed has always provided both segmented end user buyers and other dealers, this helps buyers and sellers. The rating system and ability to leave feedback allows users to know who they are dealing with. I am excited to help DOTmed continue to build community of buyers and sellers while maintaining and expanding on the DOTmed brand of integrity and doing the right thing."
My feelings about Scott are perhaps best summed up in this LinkedIn recommendation I wrote for him in 2014:
Scott Carson is a creative, innovative, persuasive and insightful entrepreneur. He can make complicated concepts easy to understand and he has a warm and engaging personality that makes him comfortable in the boardroom or the loading dock.
Scott can see things that most people miss in a business deal. He's a team player and he can find a solution when other people throw their hands up.
Scott is a bridgebuilder that he can turn enemies into friends and get them working together towards a common goal. I've never seen him lose his temper or lose his cool. He's extremely persuasive and if he says he's going to do something he does it.
You can reach Scott at just about any hour of the day or night because he's always on duty.
Scott is a dedicated husband and family man. He is articulate so he does not have to rely on foul language.
I believe that Scott will help DOTmed increase efficiency, quality and improve access to healthcare and I am glad to have him on the team. For that matter, all of us at DOTmed are excited to have him on board.
His strengths will help the company bring more affordable resources to the healthcare community.
Phil is a member of AHRA, HFMA, AAMI and the Cryogenic Society of America. He has contributed to a number of magazines and journals and has addressed trade groups.
Phil's proudest achievement is that he has been happily married to his wife Barbara since 1989, who helped him found DOTmed in 1998.
