What Our Patients Have To Say

A Word From Those We Have Helped Along The Way

“Erin called us a few hours after we found out about the diagnosis. We were confused and upset and getting to talk to an actual person right away was incredibly comforting. She was with us through the entire journey as we learned more about the diagnosis and became a support we could count on always. We will never forget her. She was wonderful. I’m so glad that she was there to help guide us.” - Sarah

“Erin was a breath of fresh air the moment we met. It takes a special someone to articulate and present very complicated information in a high level, skillful, pleasant way that made us feel empowered instead of anxious. She was patient, extremely knowledgeable, and talked with us until we felt fully informed and comfortable. Erin always followed up with us in a timely manner and shared in our joy and happiness. She made a huge impact on us in a short period of time. Erin is simply amazing and couldn’t be more well suited for her profession, she’s a gift to all that have had the opportunity to work with her.” - Elizabeth
