I prefer my doctor's approach. He made the best recommendations he could. His practice has an office that helps patients find funding. They gave me a big discount. They were a tremendous help with the cost. Since I don't have health insurance, it made all the difference. They probably saved my life with their pro-active approach to the cost of it all.

They didn't decide for me what I should and should not hear about based on what they thought I could find a way to pay for.

Maybe women PREFER to mortgage their home over ... dying prematurely.

Who writes this nonsense???
