Patient Thank You Notes

"Without Care Ring, I don’t think I’d be alive today. I am widowed with no income. And my family is only able to help with food, clothes, housing, and daily essentials. So, Care Ring has been my savior and angel on this Earth with all my medical needs. Nurses and doctors have been amazing and make me feel human. Thanks to you all. May God bless Care Ring, doctors, nurses and staff."

Mary A.

"I am a single mother who has some serious medical issues that make it hard to do my job. If it were not for Care Ring, I wouldn’t have access to some of the most incredible, caring and passionate doctors. I am so thankful for this program and the doctors who donate their time and expertise."

Tiffany P.

"With PRO, I am able to focus on getting better and doing better for myself. Prior to PRO I lived in a constant state of dread and concern about “what if” - What if I have a heart attack? What if I needed additional medication and had no one to ask? What if my situation turned worse and I had no test results to guide my caregivers? Thank God for PRO!"

Tommy B.

"I couldn't afford health insurance and was so scared. I'm very happy to have a doctor now and I love the care that I get."

Iris A.
