Independence Medical is a racket... They buy products through Edgepark Surgical (a company that RGH enterprises owns, as they are the parent of Independence Medical as well).
Edgepark marks up products and sells them to Independence Medical and Milliken Medical (also owned by RGH). All of RGH's companies are cannibals. They steal business from their customers (who use them to drop ship orders). They call your customers and offer to provide them with lower cost products from Edgepark Medical and they offer to have Edgepark do the insurance billing for free.
This is dishonest as our company had RGH in a non-disclosure and non-compete agreement, yet they choose to selectively defraud their clients. I SUGGEST that all of the medical providers out there buy from OTHER companies as this company and all RGH Enterprises companies are fraudulent and dishonest companies. Do not trust what they tell you as their company managers and their president approve these deceiptful policies. They also provide accounts to companies that are not even licensed medical companies...
I hope that the BBB and other companies put an end to Independence Medical's deceiptful practices. We are not the only company that they have done this to, and you know that we will not be the last. If the mfg's knew what Edgepark Surgical was doing with buying products as a retailer and then selling them to other companies to distribute them wholesale, they would also be in trouble with the mfg's. I suggest that all mfg's pull their products from them and supply other honest suppliers.
Independence Medical owns Reliamed (owned by RGH Enterprises as well) and this company makes products from Taiwan suppliers and sells them in the US and Europe. They basically try to have you force your products over to the Reliamed brand products and they have selectively chose to discontinue all name brand products. I hope that Independence Medical, Edgepark Surgical, Meyer Distributing, Milliken Medical, and Reliamed all meet the fate of the titanic!
Beware, you have been warned. Their are tons of other suppliers out there that can beat their pricing and do not practice account cannibalization!
