She has been with me through think and thin. When I need help she comes through by herself or finds the right Dr to make the difference. When she left the non conceraige side to become MD VIP I found the extra funds to make sure I could stay in her care. She been a life saver these past 25 years.

She returns test results quickly, and she seems… See more
