MedWise Insurance Advocacy
Surgery is terrifying enough; the endless insurance hassles waiting on the other side are mind-boggling. After a year of making every effort to resolve an exorbitant and unreasonable surgical fee, I was fortunate enough to find Adria Gross. She was the first person who was able to make sense of the system for me. In addition to resolving my billing problems, she shared my outrage at the unfair bills that were arriving on my doorstep. For the first time in a year, I felt like I had someone on my side. Adria is knowledgeable and caring, and I can't recommend her highly enough.
