Christina is always going out of her way to help patients understand their insurance benefits and governmental programs.

As you must understand, discussing finances is never a pleasant conversation, especially when one is discussing how to pay for cancer treatment. I have seen Christina talk to the patients in the most amazing manner. She is polite, respectful, listens well and takes her time with each patient. She goes out of her way in making phone calls for them, helping them understand their insurance benefits and the governmental programs. She will stop what she is doing to help anyone. She gives more than what is expected of her with her compassion and sincere heart.
