At Home Animal Hospital

AT HOME ANIMAL HOSPITAL

Dear Prospective Equipment Outreach Customers:
I am a veterinarian on Maui, Hawaii who has recently opened a small animal hospital. This is my first hospital and as you can imagine it was a huge undertaking. Our hospital is small, about 1200 square feet, but full of wonderful equipment from Dan Brosler and his team from Equipment Outreach. Dan did my ENTIRE equipment order for me. He spent COUNTLESS hours on the phone with me over a period of at least 6 months picking and refining our equipment list. He also managed to get me great financing from two sources which I wouldn’t have been able to find without his help. And the support didn’t stop when we opened our doors. Dan has come to Maui to see our hospital and still calls to check in on us to see how we are doing. The customer service is over the top excellent. My equipment order is perfect- he sells only the best brands and knows what works for people and what doesn’t work. His advice to me was priceless and the opening of our hospital went off without a hitch largely due to his help. I am a lifelong EO fan and will only ever make my future equipment purchases through Dan and his great team. PLEASE call me in person if you want to talk to me about EO. I would be happy to speak to any prospective EO customers. Choosing an equipment dealer is a huge and important step to opening your hospital. You will not go wrong with Equipment Outreach. Good luck!

safe harbor animal hospital

SAFE HARBOR ANIMAL HOSPITAL

December 7, 2011

This letter is dedicated to any Doctor who dreams of owning their own practice, big or small.
Whether you have just a dream with no idea on how to make it happen or you know exactly what you want, Dan and the staff at Equipment Outreach are your secret weapon.

I found Equipment Outreach in a veterinary periodical and called as a last resort in making my dream of owning a veterinary hospital a reality. I live in a small town and wanting to support my community I tried getting a local loan. However, I was turned down at every turn. Most of the banks wouldn’t let me get past, “I’m starting a new business…” No one was interested in loaning a new start-up business no matter what it was. I had found the perfect building at a perfect location owned by a perfect entity. I was offered an awesome lease with an even more awesome rate, but no one would even look at a loan for a start-up business.

Then…I called Dan!! I must have spent an hour talking to him that first day as I told him my visions and dreams. He quietly listened and asked me a few questions about how I practiced and what I thought were my strengths and weaknesses. He then made a few phone calls, introduced me to some of his banking colleagues and in no time I had an equipment loan. He then set to work formulating an equipment list designed specifically for my needs. Some of those needs I hadn’t even realized!! –I then went to work on my building and designed the space with his equipment in mind. The vendors working with him were extremely helpful and even assisted me in tailoring my building to suit some of my equipment. Timing was crucial and he was able to time the arrival of my bigger equipment just right with the completion of the construction.

I signed my lease on Friday, March 18th at 4 pm and saw my first client Saturday April 30th.

I now have one of the most state of the art hospitals in the Pacific Northwest and can also claim to have the best x-ray and digital systems in the Pacific Northwest as well. All thanks to Dan and his team at Equipment Outreach.

Dan is also a breath of fresh air when it comes to salesmen. We all know the “used-car” mentality that we live in fear of, but Dan is very unique. We went through my equipment list line by line many times with Dan listening to my questions and concerns faithfully. Even if it meant not making a sale he helped me choose equipment he could be proud of selling. He even helped me find used equipment in excellent shape when I didn’t need something brand new, like cages and tables. His theory was that if he was honest and found me equipment that I would be happy with for years I would never stray. He sells not for the moment, but for the future with his main goal of making a lifetime client!!

I am a lifetime client of Equipment Outreach.

To Whom It May Concern,

Dan and the crew at Equipment Outreach have helped get our practice off the ground smoothly, and help to keep it running smoothly as well. Everyone is professional and friendly, and they go the extra mile to make sure that we have what we need and understand what we have. Our practice has gone from opening to a million dollar practice in less than 2 years, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of EO. Thanks, guys!

Sincerely,

Cori Majeska, VMD

 

fresno pet er and referral center

FRESNO PET ER & REFERRAL CENTER

I stumbled across Equipment Outreach inside the vendor hall…Talking to a single rep at one stop could help us in all aspects of our purchases would save us time and potential exposure of our impending project/ideas…Dan gave us significant time and talked to us about our needs and wants….making recommendations and pointing out things we may not have thought of. Once we were farther along Dan looked over our design plans and gave valuable input…getting us all the necessary info undoubtedly saved us significant time and money…

[When reviewing additional quotes]…in the worst case scenario I was paying the advertised SHOW price for the product and in the best case scenario I was saving all the way around. My advice would be don’t nickel and dime and monkey around wasting time. Just call Dan…He’ll take good care of you … I promise.

There’s a huge difference dealing with someone that is a business owner/operator with vast experience in owning and managing hospitals and a standard sales person hired by a manufacturer and spoon fed the company lines…the advice and recommendations he gives are based on that experience. His network is far and vast…start a relationship with folks you can count on. The peace of mind that comes from knowing the voice oat the other end of the phone has your best interests at heart is worth its weight in gold.

5000 MILES AWAY IN FINLAND

Dear Colleagues,

I have been working with Dan and the team at Equipment Outreach for nearly 10 years now. While that in itself may not seem unusual, that fact that for the majority of time I was based in Finland is. Despite the fact that there is a plethora of suppliers locally I have not been able to find anyone who competes with Equipment Outreach on service, reliability and price. When things have gone wrong it has never taken more than a single phone call to Dan to solve the problem.

When we built our new, purpose designed equine hospital in 2005 I decided to put Equipment Outreach to the test and we sourced nearly all of the equipment needed for our start up from them. Buying our equipment from over 5000 miles away when we had local suppliers certainly raised some eyebrows, but when our equipment arrived on-time, under budget and exactly as specified we couldn’t have been happier. I have no hesitation in recommending Dan and his team to anyone, anywhere because I know that you will be well looked after. I am happy to be contacted by anyone considering using the company who wants more information, the best way being via email atbensykes21@hotmail.com.

Best regards,

Dr Ben Sykes BSC BVMS MS Dip ACVIM Dip ECEIM MBA

DAN IS A SUPERSTAR! BY STAN AVEZOV DVM

“If all establishments were like Equipment Outreach, Inc the world would be a better place. They treat all of their customers with the utmost respect and care and are highly accommodating. Dan Brosler is a superstar! The man knows anything and everything about veterinary equipment and the industry. He has been very supportive in helping me establish my new veterinary practice from the most basic to the most challenging tasks. Sometimes, spending hours on the phone with me discussing different possibilities and options to help me stretch my dollar.

Dan is surrounded with very wonderful and knowledgeable people. Take Tammy Waite, his trusted assistant. Tammy is great. If you have any questions about a product or need locating something and ship it to you pronto, ask Tammy. I love working with her as well.

Equipment Outreach, Inc will help you no matter what your budget is. The best suggestion is to be upfront and honest with your needs and expectations. The rest, Dan and his team will try to do for you.

Overall, I am very impressed with a quality of service and dedication from Dan and his company. I am looking forward to working with him for many years to come. He is filled with great tips and money saving ideas. Dan is a true businessman that is looking to establish long term relationships. I strongly recommend Dan and Equipment Outreach, Inc.”

I CAN’T WAIT FOR MY NEW EQUIPMENT

For a first time practice owner, having Equipment Outreach, particularly Fred Petzold, by my side was invaluable.  Fred made it his mission to understand what I wanted to accomplish in my practice and what my areas of focus were going to be.  He helped direct my limited resources towards the equipment with the quality and capabilities that were appropriate for my particular areas of interest and needs, and that would serve me well as I expanded my skills and offered additional services.  Fred found some awesome deals in both new and used equipment, which allowed me to more fully equip my hospital and stay within my budget.  He made sure I had everything I need, a lot of things I hadn’t thought about, and made sure I had it all on time. Sometimes even a little ahead of time.

I had a horrible time with my digital dental x-ray sensors.  The system took beautiful pictures, as promised, when it worked.  Unfortunately the system was broken more than it was working.  Within 4 months, I had to replace 4 sensors, and due to a backlog in manufacturing, each time I was without a sensor for a couple of weeks.  Since dentistry is an area of interest, and I include full mouth dental rads with every procedure, this was a HUGE problem.  I told Fred about my woes, and he set me up with a brand new system, an upgrade from what I had originally purchased, at no extra cost to me.  He dealt with the original manufacturer returns and the new system is on the way.  I don’t have the new system yet but I am very excited to get it!

Fred is someone I counted on to keep me on track about having everything I needed to open on time.  When I was having a stress-attack, he was there to help me work through it. He never minded my questioning every little item on the suggested list, asking all the details about every piece of equipment. A lot of the equipment I wanted, I had never worked with before- digital dental rads, excellent dental equipment, autoclave, ultrasonic instrument cleaner, etc. and he made sure I got what I needed.  He shared his experiences from working with many veterinarians over the years about which manufacturers have quality products and which not so much.  I am sure my woes with the digital xray sensor were a fluke, as nobody else I have spoken to has had trouble with this manufacturer, but Fred made it right.

I can’t recommend Equipment Outreach highly enough.  And Fred’s a really nice guy.  Next time he’s in the area, I’ll be sure to take HIM out for a couple of beers!

THOMAS AUSTIN – VETERINARIAN AT GRACE ANIMAL HOSPITAL

Using Dan Brosler and Equipment Outreach to meet all our equipment needs for our start-up veterinary practice was one of the best decisions we’ve made. Dan helped us with more than buying the right equipment. He was like having a business coach through the entire process. And, he is still with us almost 2 years later helping us in any way he can.
