Abusive Medical Billing
In today's world it sometimes feels like you're at war with the Medical Industry. It was a true blessing to find, consult with and then hire Maria Santi. She helped me with a medical bill that was abusive and incorrect. I was extremely happy with her service and would highly recommend her. I could immediately sleep better right after talking to her about my case. Her follow up and attention to my issues were truly exceptional. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with the service and expertise Maria Santi has to offer.
