Fruit Street Health offers an innovating approach to telemedicine. It augments the relation patient-healthcare provider by integrating several body parameter measuring devices into to the flow of patient's visit. It helps patients become more engaged in their own care and health.

Amy Coleman, MD Owner, President at Wellsmart Medical Services

Fruit Street Health with Laurence Girard is THE example of the truly evolved start-up. As an investor, it became immediately apparent that this was now my company too. Conversations about progress, ideas, concepts, design and analysis are open bays of discussion and discovery, with full transparency. The staff of Fruit Street are lion-hearted representatives of their specialties. It is truly apparent that we are all learning how to succeed, strategically, in this forum. Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and this company is an invitation to do just that. As a physician, I am a user of the product as well. With all of the insight from other physician user/investors of this platform, there is a true camaraderie that is a breath of fresh air. Laurence is the grounding for all of this to occur. It is more than just a software platform. Laurence has created a well-grounded portal where medical professionals are truly working together. BRAVO!!

Stephen Roberts, MD Medical Director for Health Services at Medical Care Consortium Inc. Group Holdings, LLC

Fruit Street Health is on the cusp of disruptive innovation in changing the way we deliver healthcare in the application and integration of wearable device with telemedicine. This new value-added platform and network will result in improved care coordination, behavioral coaching and better self-management in chronic disease processes. This will certainly lead to a windfall in ROI for the medical device industry and the healthcare community as a whole.

Tommy Ibrahim, MD, MHA Chief Physician Officer at Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines

Laurence and team are innovators and advanced in their thinking and in leading their enterprise. He is an excellent communicator and engager and has done a phenomenal job with Fruitstreet and bringing in investors and partners to move this startup forward. He has worked with large companies just as FitBIt, Davita, Sodexo, and others to bring digital patient monitoring and remote care to physicians across the country. This company will do very well under his leadership.

Armando Villarreal Physician at University of Rochester Medical Center

Telemedicine is a growing field in Medicine, that allow providers get in contact with patients wherever and whenever is needed. Patients appreciate the availability and convenience of the service. Fruit Street has gone beyond a regular telemedicine practice, by taking advantage of wearable devices that have become quite popular and accurate. It allow physicians to determine the state of health their patients have at every visit, and allow us to provide more accurate information tailored to the specific needs of the patient in front of the screen. It is truly a revolutionary way to help patients accomplished their goals.

Christopher da Costa MD,PhD, MBA, FACP Vice President of Clinical Development at Synthetic Biologics, Inc.

I am pleased to write this recommendation in support of f Fruit Street Health. Its CEO, Laurence is the quintessential indefatigable entrepreneur who has remained stoic in his vision for the Fruit Street telehealth platform and who continues to persist in the pursuit of this vision despite the monumental challenges facing fundraising efforts and physician engagement initiatives. The consistent and steady progress being realized by Fruit Street is a testament to the dedication, competence, and unwavering determination of its founders and management team. Fruit Street has been successful in generating immense interest within the healthcare provider community, in partnering strategically with investors and innovators in wearable technology and communication software, and in raising awareness of the potential impact of cutting edge technology on the delivery of cost-effective healthcare solutions in our current healthcare environment. I would recommend Fruit Street without reservation.

He also very loyal to his investors , he admits to his failures and takes responsibility . When he started this company he brought in the investors who lost money in his previous venture with him. He is always sharing what he does with us ill informed MDs. At the end of the day, I believe I invested in Laurence.

Marco Zahedi

Laurence has built a very successful company through hard work, dedication, and totally original and unique approach to healthcare crowdfunding. One would describe his as leader and visionary in the field of healthcare crowdfunding and his skills have been sought out and coveted by many crowdfunding institutions. On a personal note, I have know Laurence from over 1 year now, and since that time he has literally converted me from a skeptic, to an investor, and through his daily efforts, into a full believer in his product and company. He has created an environment within our investor board where we are considered more of a friendly family, exchanging ideas for the betterment of healthcare, and has provided me with alot of excitement, resources and technology that I have implemented in my own practice. I look forward to his future ventures and continued work on our current venture, Fruitsteet.

Suffice to say I am fully behind Laurence Girard and Fruit Steet.

Manj Gunawardane

Laurence is an incredibly driven, thoughtful and selfless entrepreneur who has fused his vision of wellness and preventive health with current and future technology to grow Fruit Street Health into an exciting startup. He is action oriented, a great communicator, and recognizes the value of a purpose-driven organization. He knows his strengths and weaknesses well. His curiosity and passion fuel both his personal growth and the growth of Fruit Street Health.

Christopher Meatto Employee at Fruit Street Health, P.B.C.

I am a 1974 graduate with honors of the Harvard Law School. For the past 6 years I have worked exclusively with startups as legal counsel and business advisor.

In May, 2015, I took a leave of absence from my vibrant business at harvardlaw74.com to become the Chief Operating Officer at Fruit Street Health to work alongside Laurence Girard as his "second chair."

Laurence is an outstanding entrepreneur and, most importantly , a young man committed to disrupt obesity and life style medicine, and perhaps the entire medical profession.

He works at a great and exciting pace, with little or no ego, and can keep up with me, doctors, physicians, and investors with ease. He is also willing to learn, and surrounds himself with only the best and the brightest.

I have watched him grow Fruit Street Health over the last 17 months and know that he will succeed in whatever he does.

I consider him a professional colleague and a close personal friend.

-entrepreneurship of Laurence

Swiss Business Angel Patrick Wittwer

Michael Mascia

My expectations are very high. Health + health care products + services must work, be effective + work all the time. I have put quite a bit of pressure on Laurence to deliver on promises to help us "First do no harm" + "Do good." He has done so.
In just a few months, Laurence has successfully recruited an impressive advisory board, and raised funds and relationships to create the Fruit Street Health Platform. This telemedicine platform, which is now operational, will help Veritas Health Care (the non profit @www.VeritasHC.org) develop solutions to health + health care problems that plague the world.
The Fruit Street Health platform facilitates the Patient-Physician relationship, teaching, training, team development, teamwok, health + health care literacy and telemedicine. In other words, The Fruit Street Health Platform allows for the integration of health and health care and treatment and contributes to the provision of best care + treatment that we all need.

With a passion to make a difference in healthcare delivery and to remove barriers to healing I along with 15 other physicians invested in Fruitstreet health. We believe in combining Purpose and profit . Laurence and his team of 50 doctors have put together a solution which i believe to my core will result in better clinical out comes, making well care delivery a priority along with sick care delivery.

I believe that this company will in 5 year will be a multi billion dollar company which will have a huge impact on healthcare delivery in USA and the World over.

Ajith Puthillath

I have invested in both of Laurence's startups and I have witnessed that Laurence is an extremely hardworking and driven entrepreneur. After his first startup failed, he offered all of his old investors free shares in his new startup FruitStreet.com. In addition, I believe that Fruit Street's model of combining telemedicine with wearable devices and mobile applications will result in better clinical outcomes for patients. Laurence is an extremely innovative CEO and entrepreneur and will likely take Fruitstreet to great heights.

Allan Young Advisor at Booke

I had the honor of incubating Fruit Street, run by founder and CEO Laurence Girard, at TopLine for most of 2014. Laurence is a relentless entrepreneur. I've been impressed with every step of progress Laurence has brought about for his startup. Laurence has chosen a gigantic market that is complex and byzantine. Only a relentless entrepreneur can figure this out.

The technology Fruit Street has put together is state of the art. They have built the platform so that it can capably handle massive scale without a degradation of video quality.

Rogerio Teixeira DaSilva MD, PhD

I always dreamed of the day when the medicine was integrated to the reality of the internet. Patients arriving with lots of information obtained on the internet, about their clinical condition and treatment options are now a reality, which at first scared too. I always believed that we should never get away from this reality, and believe that all evolution that came with the internet has opened up the possibility to be here today along with other colleagues at FruitStreet. Since I spoke for the first time with Laurence I believed on this business on the medical field. High costs, patients struggling to leave their job or their home to simple return for a visit is struggling the medical system. information available 24/7 for doctors and patients, wherever they are, and with all security that this business needs, is a necessity. These are some of the many benefits that FruitStreet offers for clients, thus helping to make the health system more fair and more practical and reliable.

Thanks to the hard work and endless devotion of his time, Laurence Girard has taken Fruitstreet from an idea on paper to a fully functional telemedicine platform(in just one year might I add). By developing such a diverse telemedicine platform for the medical and healthcare community to use, he will help transform the way care is provided to patients. Laurence has surrounded himself with great leaders and advisors who bring a wealth of knowledge to help navigate complex issues that arise when developing this type of platform. Laurence consistently updates all the investors about the progress of Fruitstreet and routinely requests feedback on important decisions that have great impact on the growth of Fruitstreet.

Laurence Girard has gone to great lengths to find board members who are/have been tops in their fields, and has included them in sculpting Fruit Street's mission. He has made sure that the board is aware of all actions, and our correspondence is so often it sometimes feels like we have a board meeting weekly.
I feel very comfortable that the company will succeed and thrive under Laurence's leadership.

With the rising costs of healthcare, the physician shortage, and millions of new americans with health insurance, fruitstreet could help give millions of americans more affordable, more convenient access to care, as well as improve the quality of life for practitioners who adopt Fruitstreet. Furthermore, with easier access to care for patients who currently don't seek medical help, it would reduce the burden on the healthcare system in the long run by decreasing the incidence of chronic disease, as fruitstreet's focus is on prevention through wellness monitoring programs including but not limited to, increased activity and better nutrition for patients. In my opinion, with a fully committed, hard working and dedicated leader CEO/Founder Laurence Girard, Fruitstreet is sure to have a major impact in the future of healthcare in America and Beyond---Ari Bernstein, M.D.
