WHERE TO BUY YOUR COMPRESSION GARMENTS?
There are many options for people to purchase their compression garments. Today, I wanted to share why you might choose The Compression Closet to buy your compression garments. A few years back, I was privileged to participate in an educational workshop by Lymphedema Seminars. This organization provides continuing education seminars for lymphedema therapists. One of the presenters, Karen Ashforth, a lymphedema therapist for several years, included me in her presentation. Karen shared with this group why she chose The Compression Closet for her patients and what set us apart from other companies. I want to share her thoughts with you as they might help you decide where to buy your compression garments.
First of all, Karen stated that “The Compression Closet is cost-effective.” We strive to keep our prices low while providing the best compression garments for the lymphedema condition. We can offer these competitive prices because we are an online business and do not have the overhead cost that many medical supplies stores have. We also work with customers, providing payment plans and deferred payments as needed.
Furthermore, Karen also felt we had one of the market’s best return/exchange policies. “The Compression Closet is very easy to reach when there is a problem. I don’t have to go through several customer service reps to get an answer,” Karen said. We at The Compression Closet understand that lymphedema is not a one-size-fits-all condition. Therefore, we may have to go through a handful of exchanges and returns to get you the best garment for your needs. That is why we have a full 30-day return policy from the delivery date. We also provide a shipping label for you to return your garment, so there is no additional cost. We want you in the correct garment! The garment that gives you the most effective compression therapy for your condition and your lifestyle.
BACKGROUND & KNOWLEDGE OF PRODUCT
“I appreciate your background and knowledge of products as a fitter. It helps when patients (or therapists) need to problem solve about garments,” Ashforth said. “I trust your judgment and recommendations to my patients. They all love working with you, too.” I have worked with lymphedema therapists and their patients for over a dozen years. So, I do understand the challenges that can occur with fitting for lymphedema. Although I certainly don’t have all the answers, I have an extensive network of therapists and reps I can collaborate with to help develop solutions. Brainstorming and problem-solving are one of the skill sets I bring to this job.
YOUR AVAILABILITY AND ATTITUDE
Karen also said, “Your attitude – you are willing to go the extra mile and are never grumpy about returns or difficult patients. Furthermore, you’re available for my patients.” I genuinely desire to create meaningful personal relationships with my therapists and the patients they serve. I care, I listen, I consult, I exchange, I refund, and I work with you to provide solutions to the challenges of lymphedema.
GETTING MORE PATIENTS INTO COMPRESSION
Additionally, Karen mentioned my desire to help therapists get those patients who cannot afford compression into garments with my incentive program. The way my incentive program works is for every ten patients you refer to The Compression Closet, I give you a garment for 1/2 off. If you refer 20 patients to my website, you can provide one of your patients with a free garment. I also have some samples and returned garments in good condition that I can provide for those who require compression and have no means to pay. Working together, we can provide compression for more people who genuinely need it.
WHY THE COMPRESSION CLOSET?
In conclusion, Karen said, “You make my job easy because I trust your judgment and integrity. Your personal touch won me over and set your business apart from other vendors.”
I want to be your go-to compression provider, as well. Through self-care and love, we can empower those living with lymphedema to achieve a better quality of life.
Improve the quality of your compression – improve the quality of your life. Compression made simple.
RESOURCES AND INFORMATION
When I originally designed The Compression Closet, it was a website where you purchased garments for lymphedema. Over the years, I would get more and more questions about the lymphedema condition, and customers wanted to know where they could learn more. Therefore, I created a blog post on my website to help educate and inform my customers and the public in general about lymphedema.
You will also find a Resource Page on my website. This page includes resources for those dealing with lymphedema and lipedema. I am continually adding to these resources, and if you ever have a resource that you have found helpful, I’d love to hear about it to see if I can include it on my website.
WHY THE COMPRESSION CLOSET?
So, why The Compression Closet? Above are a few reasons why you might choose The Compression Closet as the place where you buy your compression garments. However, the most important reason is that I care!
