I am freelance in the tv industry. I was brought on to a project that was a mess to begin with and although things seemed to be rolling along so much needs to be done to come together seamlessly. If things don't roll out as they should it's a matter of time and more money. It's not just time and money for me though it's also the look of the final product. I have let this eat me up for about 4 months and for being there for 4 months one would think I would have resolved certain issues but the issues are coming up quick and I need to get them fixed. There is little support to get this thing done and so many other issues. I just feel like I am nearly 40, should know what I am doing but instead I am anxiety riddled and becoming emotional over it all.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
