Suzanne Webb has worked in the Healthcare Industry since 1988. She has worked for hospital groups and later as CFO for hospitals. She learned the inner workings of the insurance industry and how they work.
Over the past 15 years, she with her husband Kelly owned a medical billing company that focused on Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC’s) and surgeons. Over the years, the relationship between the surgeon and the patient has changed. It’s all about what the insurance carrier wants NOT the Physician.
They are connecting vetted surgeons (over 21 inspection criteria) and then vet the Ambulatory Surgery Center to verify that it has a low infection rate. Imagine going to Esurgeries.com and picking the best surgeon and safest environment for you or your family.
