Testimonials

Torax Medical and physi­cian thought leaders have collab­o­rated … building a strong scien­tific foun­da­tion of evidence to support the safety and effi­cacy of the LINX proce­dure. GERD patients who do not respond to medical ther­a­pies can create a tremen­dous cost burden on a health care system and are often at higher risks for compli­ca­tions resulting from not fully treating their disease.”

Todd Berg

President and CEO of Torax Medical

We are very excited to see such lasting results from a 1-​month, drug-​free treat­ment that can dramat­i­cally improve the quality of life for our patients and reduce total medical costs. It was also very promising to see high ther­a­pist and patient satis­fac­tion and 85 percent patient adher­ence, confirming that using Freespira® as a first line treat­ment for panic disorder and panic attacks makes good sense clin­i­cally and finan­cially.”

In the begin­ning, when I heard about HeartFlow®, I wanted to talk to my divi­sion chief, Dr. Srinivas Murali, about exploring it. But then I heard that Highmark Health and VITAL were already talking to HeartFlow®, which is a company from California. They needed a physi­cian cham­pion to put HeartFlow® to the test, and I expressed interest.”
