Chris Black is the patient service technician for Rotech in La Follette.
LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – New name. New location. New start. Rotech is open to serve the community in its new La Follette location on West Central Avenue across from First Baptist Church. American Oxygen was purchased by Rotech last year and moved earlier this year in May, according to Respiratory Therapist and Rotech location manager Shan Ray.
A first-time patient of Rotech, Cora Phillips of La Follette, worked through her doctor to get her new CPAP machine at Rotech. Phillips said, “They (Rotech) were very thorough, and I’m glad we chose Rotech.”
Mandi Hammac, a respiratory therapist with Rotech, is shown here in the process of finishing the paperwork for a CPAP machine patient.
Ray said, “We love working with all of our patients especially our elder patients.” She has been a respiratory therapist since 1990 and calls working with Rotech a perfect fit.
