It's your right to have access to the proper healthcare that's available, and it's your right to be treated like any other patient not like a red headed stepchild because you have a bleeding disorder. God Bless you have a great Christmas and Holiday!

I’ve never heard that or of those?! But I just googled it and found one not close but around 40 miles. Moving forward I’ll definitely look into that! Thanks!

Cannot say enough good about HTC’s. I have dealt with 4 different centers over the years and they have all been great.

I hope you got the treatment you need! I travel over 250 miles to get to my HTC and I have to have a major surgery in a few weeks that they are coordinating with my surgeons. The HTC connection makes a big difference - I hope you got the connection you need!
