With 20 years of experience as an registered nurse working in diverse markets within the health care industry, and working with less-than-perfect answering services, our President & CEO Tam Barendregt realized that a great need existed for quality communication services in the medical field.
Excellence and accountability were her top priorities. After researching the best companies in the industry, gaining valuable insight from trade associations and spending many hours in the selection of industry-leading communications equipment, Answer Excellence became incorporated in September of 1986 in Clearwater, Florida. We look for and hire service-driven employees, train and monitor them effectively, enhancing our ability to form true working relationships with our clients.

The story continues…
