About Flow Therapy
Flow Therapy was founded in Fort Worth, Texas and established the first treatment clinic in 2003. From the inception, Flow Therapy functioned as an extension of the cardiologist practice, delivering Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP®) on a referral basis. The decision to operate as an independent provider was key to Flow Therapy’s ability to build scale and thus truly transform the treatment experience. It is this mastery in optimizing the intersection between patient experience and exceptional patient outcomes that has set Flow Therapy apart.
Flow Therapy like so many successful start-ups, began in a humble fashion within an 11’x13’ room, with one treatment unit and three patients — one of whom was the CEO's grandfather, Irvin. Today, through tremendous dedication to this vision, Flow Therapy has extended its platform to impact the cardiovascular communities in six metropolitan areas — serving more than 20,000 patients and 800 cardiologists. As the nation’s largest provider of EECP® treatment, delivering more than 25,000 patient treatments annually, Flow Therapy has earned the trust of the cardiology communities it serves and has built a reputation for being a dynamic and effective chronic disease management partner. We are humbled by this responsibility and remain keenly focused on our sole purpose — to positively affect each life we touch, every day.
