Client Testimonials:

My mom took a copy of the Medi-Cal card to the nursing home, yesterday. Once again, I would like to express my gratitude for all the work that you have done to get the Medi-Cal approval. Living so far away, it would have been impossible to accomplish this goal. Plus, my parents are not capable of handling this overwhelming burden that they both face. You are an angel and I will be so thankful for these blessings for the remainder of their lives.
