Excellence in Prosthetics

October 08, 2012

Angelo Prosthetics and Orthotics |David Light began his career as a practitioner over thirty-five years ago. After a move across country and settling in San Angelo, the idea of owning his own company seemed too good to pass up.

David Light has over thirty-five years of experience as a practitioner providing prosthetic and orthotic appliances to patients.  He began providing this service in his family-owned business in North Carolina.

When the business closed, David and his family moved to San Angelo where he went to work for a rehab facility.  While working there, he began to formulate the idea of starting up his business again in San Angelo.

David contacted the Angelo State University – Small Business Development Center and met with Cindy Hartin to discuss how he might do that.   Cindy worked with him as he wrote his business plan that enabled him to obtain a business loan for his start-up equipment and operating capital.   David says the “SBDC helped put my ideas on paper in an organized manner that the bank and I would be able to see and understand.”

Angelo Prosthetics and Orthotics is now open and working with patents! They are setup to accept most insurances and as the only prosthetics and orthotics provider in the Concho Valley, they are quickly becoming the provider of choice for local referring physicians!
