“I know firsthand that providing patients with access to exceptional healthcare when and where they need it requires best-in-class technology, clinical resources, and patient engagement,” said Mr. Febbo. “I am impressed by LifeMD’s continued success with launching new product offerings, building a B2B pipeline, and strengthening the balance sheet – each of which is necessary to help remove the complex barriers that stand between a patient and appropriate healthcare provider. I look forward to collaborating with LifeMD’s Board and leadership to help make the delivery of healthcare services more accessible, affordable, and patient-centric.”
