Self-verified patient of Dr. Heather K Otoole - Posted on December 2nd, 2017
I, like many, have had to sacrifice my health coverage at work as I have children who need the money more. I have been without insurance now for almost six months and Dr. O'Toole and her incredible staff have been very understanding that my situation, while difficult, is only temporary. They have made my life easier with my refills and keeping my costs down to a minimum and they have done so with understanding and care. Dr. O'Toole has had my back through the hard times as well as the good times.
