“We were looking for the most qualified individual to help us direct a very important position within our company, and I believe we found him,” said Scott Hanna, CEO at QuickMedical®. “As our new Director of Medical Education, Dr. Landerholm will help us disseminate the latest in patient medical education, and contribute to our “Ask The Doctor” question and answer feature.”
In addition to the expertise of Dr. Landerholm, QuickMedical® has added a nutritional education feature through Pacific Nutrition and Wellness. They can provide customers with a comprehensive approach of medical nutrition therapy, fitness programs, free weight loss seminars, and behavioral coaching. Pacific Nutrition and Wellness works hand-in-hand with Dr. Landerholm in the nutritional and psychological assessment and management of his surgical patients.
Dr. Landerholm said, “As the new Director of Medical Education, I have a responsibility to insure that QuickMedical® provides the most up to date and accurate patient medical education. With help from my associate Melanie Machado, RD, CD, at Pacific Nutrition and Wellness, I believe we can offer a QuickMedical customer the latest in cutting edge medical information and technology.”
“There is any number of distributors throughout the US that can advertise and sell medical equipment and supplies at a low price; but few, if any that can take customer service and medical and product education to the level we demand at QuickMedical®,” said Loren Timmons, Marketing Director at QuickMedical®. “The reason our customers keep coming back to us over and over again, as far back as 1993, is because they get a No-Risk guarantee on every product they purchase and more value from every dollar they spend with us.”

With offices and warehouse located in Issaquah, WA, QuickMedical® is able to provide nearly 26,000 medical products to choose from with the convenience of ordering directly by phone, fax or website.
