Client Profile

Mrs. Gonzales came to the Wellness Center to see our OB/GYN doctor.  She had been suffering from some pretty debilitating health issues for a long time. She was immediately referred to the hospital and admitted. If she had not been able to access a doctor she would not be with us today. She credits our OB/GYN  doctor with saving her life.
