The office provides home health care to patients in the greater Broward County area.
The agency placed in the top 25 percent of Fazzi Associates' Patient Satisfaction National Database, which ranked overall patient satisfaction results from the 2012 Home Health Care Consumer Assessment of Health Care Providers and Systems Survey (HHCAHPS®).

"We appreciate our patients taking the time to provide their feedback, recognizing Med Tech Services for meeting and exceeding their expectations," said Lynn Wilson, the company's Regional Vice President of Sales & Operations in Florida.

We knew they provided exceptional patient care and now that exceptional care is reflected in one of the top national databases."
The HHCAHPS survey is provided to all home health care patients covered by Medicare. Patients are asked how well the agency communicated and discussed medicines, pain and home safety; if care was provided in a professional way; how they would rate the agency overall; and how strongly they would recommend the agency to others.
