"FOAA has tangibly demonstrated their value to our team from literally the first time I talked with Dr. Vilasi by phone. Their responsiveness and sensitivity to our needs-our local situation-has been surpassed only the by clinical reassurance and the supportive service they are now providing to our patients, our surgeons, other specialists and staff. FOAA clearly understands that providing care means far more than delivering a strong clinical outcome within the footprint of the OR. They understand that 'top quality' is the entire team's responsibility, and they definitely make a positive contribution to that team goal."
