Patient Comments (1)
Berrien Springs ,MI |
She is the best. I highly recommend her. She is compassionate and professional. But best of all she and her group have stood together and remained independent on their own and have not joined Lakeland Care. For this I applaud them. They can still practice how they feel is right not how some other entity tells them to practice. She is a keeper for sure.
