Dr. Gary Kompothecras, D.C., "Dr.Gary," launched one of the first multi-disciplinary medical clinics in 1996, intending to assist automotive accident victims. His top priority was assembling a group of qualified medical professionals who could attend to his patients' requirements and facilitate their speedy recovery. In that clinic and the ones that came after it, the medical staff grew to include M.D.'s, D.O.'s, Orthopedic Surgeons, Neurosurgeons, Radiologists, Physician's Assistants, D.C.'s, Nurse Practitioners, and Massage Therapists.
More creativity would ensue. The advent of technologically sophisticated medical technology allowed Dr. Gary's group practice to identify ailments not previously detectable via conventional physical exams. Consequently, patients were no longer required to settle claims based on a non-specific soft tissue injury diagnosis. The combined expertise of orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and chiropractors enables the clinic to provide the most significant level of service consistently.
Dr. Gary developed an efficient and cost-effective method of treating vehicle accident sufferers over time. The modification was crucial since many patients lacked health insurance other than the $10,000 in No-Fault coverage provided by their Florida vehicle insurance. After an accident, patients finally had access to the level of care and outcomes that only the best doctors and diagnostic technologies could provide.
The patients who have entrusted Physician's Group, LLC with their medical treatment have always been Gary Kompothecras's priority. Due to his dedication to providing excellent treatment, his practice was the first recognized by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations, today known as the Joint Commission. This certification is the quality benchmark for the whole healthcare business, including big hospitals.
After several interactions with patients, Dr. Gary realized that they were often unaware of the healthcare advantages associated with their vehicle insurance. Many accident victims were unnecessarily suffering because they did not seek medical attention. This revelation was the impetus for founding the 1-800-ASK-GARY (1-866-939-7352) accident hotline, which provides accident victims free access to an attorney and/or doctor.
One of our first patients was an employee who would soon become well-known as "ROZ" in television advertisements. She was so delighted with her treatment for her accident-related injuries that she wanted to share her experience. Roz's willingness to share her story inspired the television commercial in which she is featured. Her message, "do not be afraid or confused," was an immediate hit. Roz is still with us and routinely encourages accident victims to utilize their rights and be informed through television. The key to Roz's story's popularity is straightforward: IT IS TRUE. Her debut television advertisement was unscripted. It was just her tale, told in her own words, and it resonated with many who felt her grief and aggravation at not knowing who to turn to after an accident.
Gary Kompothecras trademarked the 1-800-ASK-GARY (1-866-939-7352) moniker, which is presently licensed to W.S. Media, Inc., which operates the ASK GARY Auto Accident and Injury Helpline. Dr. Gary continues to be devoted to providing the greatest care to worthy patients. In addition, both Dr. Gary and his enterprises have contributed substantially to several community-impacting projects.
Since 2001, over two hundred thousand individuals have called 1-800-ASK-GARY for assistance with traffic accidents and injuries. 1-800-Ask-Gary is a 24-hour, toll-free hotline for vehicle accidents and injuries.
