quotation markHaving a lawyer to call upon to assist our elderly patients has been invaluable. Oftentimes my patients are so frail and vulnerable and cannot begin to deal with the legal problems that are further complicating their lives. Knowing that LegalHealth is part of our treatment team and literally down the hall has enriched our geriatric practice.quotation mark
