Reaching out and supporting all of our communities is one of the pillars on which our mission and our purpose are built. See what our patients have to say and take a look at how greatly we give to our local community — you might be surprised.

Getting Started – Finding a Doctor for Your Recommendation
If you don’t already have a doctor’s recommendation, here are some suggestions.
- If you don’t have a friend who can make a recommendation you may be able to find a qualified physician at: http://www.canorml.org/prop/215physicians.html
- Verify the doctor's information. Prior to going to the doctor, ask for their name and CA license number. Then go to this website to verify that their info is current. http://www.medbd.ca.gov/lookup.html
