Healthcare is not something you should get from the lowest bidder or the mall. Look for someone you already have a medical connection with, ie someone within your GP network.
5 out of 5 stars Active FX
Doctor and his staff fully explained every aspect of the procedure and what to expect during recovery. All of my questions were answered, and I could email the Patient Coordinator at any time, if I thought of something afterwards. I had a nurse with me at all times during my procedures, in addition to the surgical nurses during the Active FX treatment. The doctor even send flowers to my house wishing me a excellent recovery.
