At Bio-Fit we've provided custom fabricated and custom fitted orthotics and prosthetics services  to different hospitals in the city and brooklyn, :Mt Sinai,St. vincent, Methodist,Kingsbrook jewish and more.

As part of my job i did prrety much anything that  came around : covering ortho clinics in various areas(pediatrics,joints,rehalb,spine,sport and more) and was involved in pretty much every aspect of the buisness daily tasks: patient care/follow up ,office manegment(billing,stock,appts etc.) running the lab(fabricating,supply managing ,    training new tech's,etc.)
