I am very thankful to Karina Gonzalez, who legally helped in changing my business plans for starting a new healthcare business. It required a lot of investments, but I was very appreciative of the advice from Karina Gonzalez.

Loves her attitude
I am very much thankful to Karina Gonzales, who has helped me out in a healthcare related case. It was stressful and I felt there was no way out, however, Karina was able to litigate on my behalf.

I am happy with the results
Karina Gonzalez really helped me in getting the reimbursement back from an Insurance company. She is very knowledgeable and knows her work. I liked the way she understood my situation and analysed it. I am very glad that I contacted her as an agent.

She gave me clear advise
Our nursing home hired Karina Gonzalez to develop policies and procedures for the reimbursement of payments affiliated with managed care payors. We now have our policies in place and our organization is very grateful to her.

Karina Gonzalez helped my private practice obtain my reimbursement from an insurance company that was not very responsive. Her concentrated efforts ensured that every aspect of the case received attention. She was in constant touch with our team and helped us negotiate to get better reimbursement terms from the insurance company. Thank you.

Hard working Attorney
Karina is one of the hardest working Attorneys I know. I have a medical billing company specializing in Behavioral Heath Facilities and Toxicology Labs and Karina has been instrumental in keeping us aligned with insurance companies so that we have a better working relationship. She achieves this by staying in constant communication with the Insurance carriers and translating the information to my Billing Company and the Providers we represent. I believe that having experience working for the insurance companies for many years and now representing the Providers makes her the best fit to bridge the gap between the two parties. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the Heath Care Industry.
