How to Be Your Customer's First Call, with Zach Reitano of Ro
After each member of his family grappled with a life-threatening illness--himself included--Zach Reitano's made it his entrepreneurial mission to provide personalized healthcare to everyone on the planet. In 2017, Reitano and his co-founders started healthcare tech company, Ro. With offerings that span Roman (for men's health) to Rory (for women's health), Ro quickly took off and was named one of the most innovative companies in 2019 by Fast Company. In the episode, Reitano shares how Covid has accelerated the adoption of telemedicine, why building trust with patients is so critical, and why putting his dad in Ro's commercial was one of his best decisions to date.
