3 Essential Family Practice Office Products July 16 2015
We at MonsterMed are PROS at setting up new offices, especially Family Practices who love our low prices and our 24/7 online ordering system. While every office orders differently, here are three products that are very common and essential to your Family Practice Office.
This general use Exam Table is perfect for the Family Practice and not only because it’s named that. The Clinton Family Practice Exam Table carries a low price, running under $700, with most of the same features you can find on a $1,200 Exam Table. Value like that is extremely appealing to new practices. Clinton recently redesigned their Family Practice Exam Table by adding an optional built-in Step-Stool. The Family Practice Exam Table features a wide variety of stylish colors, which are sure to match to your office design, and ample storage space that is essential for space-restricted offices.
Though its name may suggest, 3M’s Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is not just for cardiology. It is specially designed for improved acoustic performance and exceptional adaptability, featuring an extremely versatile double-sided adult or pediatric chest piece. The clear sound quality the Littmann Cardiology III produces gives Family Practice practitioners the best chance for an accurate diagnosis.
There are few things that you count on being visible in any exam room…one is a diagnostic wall system. The Welch Allyn 777 Integrated Wall System is essential to any Family Practice because of its affordability, security and availability. The 777 Integrated Wall System gives the practitioner everything needed to make an accurate diagnosis, within an arms reach. Did we mention that they are completely customizable? Combine blood pressure, otoscope, ophthalmoscope, specula dispenser, thermometry, vital signs monitor, clock, handle charger and more in one convenient, secure location.
If you are setting up your office or updating your current equipment, give MonsterMed a call. We can help you customize your office to meet your needs while saving you $$$.
Frequently Asked Questions: Exam Tables May 11 2015
With hundred of calls daily, many include FAQ’s on our best selling products. We at MonsterMed proudly introduce our new blog segment, Frequently Asked Questions: Let’s start with Exam Tables.
Since one of our most popular exam tables is the Midmark 204 Exam Table, we receive many calls each day to purchase and/or ask information about the table. Questions include things like upholstery thickness and weight capacity, but most common is the difference between the two upholstery tops, Stitched or Seamless. The 204 is offered with your choice of a Soft-Touch Stitched or Seamless Upholstery Top. The main difference between the two tops is the Seamless Upholstery Top is much easier to clean because it does not have any stitches or folds in the upholstery, plus it’s unique, sleek look. Another FAQ for the Midmark 204 Exam Table is assembly. The upholstery top and drawer panel covers is offered in a separate box than the exam table base. Attaching the top to the table is unbelievable easy and there are instructions as well as YouTube videos online to explain it further.
An exam table that is gaining popularity fast, because of its competitive price, is the Clinton 8870 Family Practice Exam Table. One of the most common questions asked by customers looking for an Exam Table is the difference between this and the Midmark 204 Exam Table. These two Exam Tables recently hashed it out in our battle-dome during one of out Product Battle Blog Posts. Click here to see that battle. Again, assembly is a common question and very easy to answer for the 8870. It comes fully assembled and ready to use right off the pallet.
Recently, we have been being asked about Midmark’s 223 Barrier-Free Power Exam Table. Commonly asked is whether or not an office needs to own a table like this. Our answer is always yes! Every office should own at least one Barrier-Free Power Exam Table if they are seeing many young, elderly, disabled or expecting patients. The Midmark 223 Barrier-Free Power Exam Table will make this population of patient’s trip to the office a much more enjoyable visit with a barrier-free access to the table.
These are just some of the most common questions that are asked about Exam Tables. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate asking our friendly and helpful customer service representatives.
How We Ship Medical Exam Tables March 12 2015
We at MonsterMed.com are experts in shipping and delivery of all types of Medical Exam Tables. Many medical practices don’t know that they are able to purchase large medical tables such as the Ritter 204 Exam Table or 630 HumanForm Procedure Table, online. But these types of tables are easily shipped across the U.S. Plus, when you buy a table online, you are able to view all possible options and accessories that are available, such as table top upholstery colors and styles. And though coordinating the delivery for a 300+ pound piece of equipment seems difficult, its not for us pros!
We would like to take a moment to explain the shipping procedure of a large item like a medical table.
-Information needed for a shipping quote
There are many factors that come into play when obtaining a delivery quote. Being table shipping pros, we are able to answer most trucking questions without needing to bother you. In most cases, all we need from you to obtain a quote is your zip code, quantity of tables and the type of delivery you prefer. A request from a customer can look as simple as this: “I need a white glove rate for a 204 exam table to zip code 17403”. Simplicity made simple! Our specialists will then contact numerous trucking agencies to obtain the best rate.
Truck deliveries are not as clear-cut as UPS or FedEx deliveries. Each service carries additional fees. The most inexpensive and basic truck delivery is Dock to Dock. Dock to Dock includes a simply delivery to a dock at your facility and is only an option if your facility has a dock for the truck to back up to. If the delivery location does not have a Loading/Unloading Dock, you would have to use the next option Liftgate Delivery. Also called Curbside Delivery, Liftgate Delivery costs more that Dock Delivery because a trailer with a Liftgate is needed for bringing the shipment to the ground. All that is included with this option is bringing the shipment to the ground for the customer.
Any additional handling of merchandise by the delivery company will increase the delivery cost. Inside Delivery can be misleading at times for customers. While the name implies that the table will be brought inside, the accessibility will determine how far it will be taken. The delivery company will only bring the shipment as far as the pallet will allow. If the pallet is too large to fit through the door of the facility, it will not be brought inside. This is where a majority of problems occur with this type of service. If you question whether this will be an issue for your delivery, contact us for the size of the pallet and measure your entrance way to determine if there will be an issue.
-White Glove Delivery
The most popular and delivery option is White Glove which takes the work out of the customer hands and puts it into ours. With White Glove Service, you will receive a phone call prior to delivery to schedule a delivery date and time. On that date, our agents will show up with an assembled, unpacked exam table, ready for installation. They will then bring the table to the room of your choice and remove all shipping debris. The only thing you have to do is have the space for the table clear. This is the most popular option for delivery of an exam table.
Being we deliver so many tables, we have built a nationwide delivery network at the most competitive prices available, and we pass those savings onto you, our beloved customer. Give us a call today and upgrade that old exam table. You will be happy you did!
We at MonsterMed.com are excited to introduce a new blog segment entitled “Product Battle!” In these posts, we will take two or three items from the same product family and compare them in three different categories: Price, Aesthetics, and Features.
The clear winner in this category is the Clinton 8870 Exam Table. Coming in at under $700 (as of 3-18-2014), this table is the most economic exam table you will find on the market today. Don’t think that this table is “cheap” though. As you will read later on, it has the features and durability of a $1,000+ Exam Table.
Though the 8870 was the clear winner in pricing, the category of Aesthetics clearly goes to the Midmark Ritter 204 exam table. When it comes to style and look, no one can even compete with the Midmark Ritter line of tables. The Midmark 204 crumples up and throws away the “box” style of traditional Exam Tables with its sleek rounded edges and stylish color choices that coordinate well with any exam room.
While there has been a clear winner in each of the previous categories, table features are a bit trickier. The Midmark 204 and the Clinton 8870 standard features include stirrups, a pullout footrest, a manually adjustable backrest, a roll paper dispenser and seamless upholstery (though an upgrade on the Midmark 204). Where they differ is in the base of the tables. The Midmark 204 has an 115VAC electrical outlet giving the user additional outlets for their medical devices during an exam. The Midmark 204 also features an enlarged pullout footstep allowing the patient easier access to the table. While the Clinton 8870 does not have either of these features, it does offer an inexpensive footstep, which has the advantage of portability. Not having the footstep built in does gives Clinton the advantage of adding an additional drawer at the foot of the table while there are only two on the Midmark 204. The Clinton 8870 gives you a storage door on the patient’s right with an adjustable shelf inside while the Midmark 204 provides three pull out drawers on the side of the exam table with a pass-through design allowing access from either side of the table.
And The Winner is…
This battle is too close to choose a winner. Each table has advantages and disadvantages when compared to each other. If you are willing to sacrifice an electrical outlet, a built-in footstep and a sleeker design, then the 8870 will save you some money and still meet or exceed your needs. If those options are important to you, then buying a Midmark 204 Exam Table is likely your better option.
You cannot go wrong with either of these tables, so please call us and let us provide you with a custom price quote today or visit our Exam Tables online at MonsterMed.com. Also, if you would like to see a product battle between a few products, please email us your ideas at Sales@monstermed.com
