After nine years in the medical device industry, Darik Volpa witnessed a huge disconnect in communication between surgeons and patients.
Most of the time doctors were too busy or lacked the skill set to communicate well with patients, and patients were usually confused with strange terminology or too nervous to ask the right questions.
These opportunities led Darik to found Understand.com® in May of 2003.
