DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With a goal of making quality medical products and educational caregiving resources accessible to all, DiscountMedicalSupplies.com, the nation's first physician owned and operated medical equipment and supply e-commerce site, has—in just one year—become the fastest-growing medical supplies e-commerce site in the United States, serving 30,000 total unique customers and 90,000 visitors a month. With a 40-person staff comprising practitioners and caregivers, DiscountMedicalSupplies.com provides practitioners, patients, caregivers and the public with name-brand medical products at 40% to 50% less than retail price—which the company backs with a price match guarantee.
"We take the pain out of ordering medical supplies thanks to our excellent prices and user-friendly website," says founder and CEO Dr. Jon Segal. "Our dedicated customer support staff, all of whom are caregivers themselves, are available to help customers with all their personal questions and concerns."
Offering more than 40,000 products, DiscountMedicalSupplies.com features an easy-to-use e-commerce platform that enables customers to place and track orders 24 hours a day. The site has one virtual "storefront" catering to patients, caregivers and the public and one virtual "storefront" dedicated to practitioners.
DiscountMedicalSupplies.com also provides free educational content to serve as a resource to the public and the nation's caregivers, of which there are more than 65.7 million (according to a 2009 study by The National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP).
Site features include a live chat, price match guarantee, a blog, extensive call center hours, bilingual customer support staff, order tracking, same-day delivery and free delivery with certain purchase total. Products include diabetic, incontinence, mobility aid, personal care, rehab and pain management, and wound care supplies.
Segal was inspired, in part, to form DiscountMedicalSupplies.com by his family's personal health history. When he was 13 years old, Segal witnessed his father's decline and death due to cancer. Prior to that, the family had taken care of him in the home for years, and the experience left a lasting impression on Segal about the nature of caregiving. After graduating as a chiropractor from Life University in 1998, the Long Island native became a leading consultant in the chiropractic industry, educating chiropractors—and later, physicians of all kinds—in insurance billing and how to grow their practices. Segal also owned a chiropractic practice in Hollywood.
Partnering with experts in the medical and online retail industry, Segal established DiscountMedicalSupplies.com and DiscountChiropracticSupplies.com in 2012 to deliver high-quality medical supplies and products to everyone at the lowest prices available. In light of his childhood experience, Segal particularly wants to serve the growing population of caregivers in the United States.
Customer service representatives, fluent in English and Spanish, are available via phone or live chat Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET and Fridays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET. Service available to U.S. customers only.
Discount Medical Supplies is headquartered in Delray Beach, Fla. For more information, visit www.DiscountMedicalSupplies.com or call 888-444-6741 or 516-612-8799.
