I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your invaluable assistance in expediting hospice care for my wife Carol. Although we were eventually very satisfied with the home health aides, nurses, equipment and supplies provided, it was only after your intervention on our behalf that timely and complete service became the norm. Your prompt and decisive actions on our behalf really made a difference. On behalf of my daughter Lara and our entire family, I offer you our gratitude and best wishes.
Jackie was truly a blessing.
Jackie O'Doherty helped out during a very stressful period for me and my daughter. When my daughter was diagnosed with thyroid tumors after a routine physical, we turned to Jackie for help in finding a pediatric endocrinologist -- not an easy proposition. Within a day, she had located an excellent doctor, near our home, who proved to be very helpful and thorough. He ultimately referred us to one of the nation's top pediatric endocrinologists for a biopsy and confirmation of his diagnosis. This physician was at the Yale Pediatric Specialty Center, and Jackie even helped us with planning the best route for our drive there, to New Haven,CT from our home in New Jersey. She made a stressful time much more manageable, and we are very grateful.
