What Patients Are Saying
I wanted to send you a note and please feel free to use this as a review. I cannot thank you enough for all you’ve done for my family. You first “tested” my father and concluded he had dementia. And I will always be grateful to you for your advice for me to get prepared. And I did. I thank you for helping… actually I think you did the majority of it… with the paperwork. I thank you for checking in on us and suggesting a new medication that has helped my Dad tremendously.
When my friend’s mother was declining, I suggested she call you. My friend tells me whenever we talk, how grateful she is for you. Her mother did not have long-term care insurance like my father, so she really needed some advice. You came through for her and now she’s putting her mother in assisted living, which was not an easy choice, but with your counseling, made it easier.
Mihae, you are a gift from God! Thank you.Kriss (Martin’s daughter)
