New Referral Relationship Manager, Joe Simpson

Meet Joe

Born in Philadelphia, PA, Joe earned a B.S. in biology from Southampton College in 2003 and has worked in the veterinary field since 2005.  During that time, he has worked in a variety of roles including as a veterinary technician, in vaccine production for Merck Animal Health, and a human resource/practice manager for a local AAHA accredited veterinary hospital.  Prior to joining VRC, he spent the last 3 years as a veterinary services representative for Petplan Pet Insurance.

During his freetime, Joe enjoys spending time with his wife Brittany and their two amazing daughters.  He also enjoys hiking with his two crazy dogs Harley and Oswald, running, and spending time at the beach.

What is a Referral Relationship Manager (RRM)? 

VRC has a Referral Relationship Manager to ensure that the needs of local general practice veterinarians are being met, to distribute up-to-date materials about new specialties and services, and to introduce our specialists to the referring community. Joe works with referring partners to schedule Lunch & Learn events and VRC doctor Meet & Greets that enable us to nurture relationships with one another. He also coordinates Continuing Education courses at VRC for rDVMs and technicians.

When you schedule a Lunch & Learn or Meet & Greet with doctors at VRC, we travel to your location (with complimentary breakfast or lunch) and provide education, training, and relationship building opportunities

Exciting Service Update: Emergency Ultrasound Available 7 Days a Week

Emergency ultrasound is now performed 7 days a week by either Sarah Fatula, VMD or John Anastasio, DVM, DACVECC.

 

What is an ultrasound and how does it work?

Ultrasound uses sound waves at an extremely high frequency to produce pictures of internal structures without radiation. Ultrasound images are also able to show internal movement in real time, including blood flowing through vessels. Ultrasound is often essential in the diagnosis of internal conditions like pancreatitis or symptoms like abdominal pain. It is also used to guide needle biopsies, which are performed to assist in the diagnosis of diseases such as cancer.
