Like many of us, Donna has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. She was suffering from shortness of breath and scared, but no one would test her. Turning to her local hospital for help, they showed her another way through MDsave.
“I’m originally from Connecticut and now live in Naples, Florida. I’m getting married next year to my fiancé. After 43 years, I finally found my sidekick. We’re both very outdoorsy and like to go kayaking, biking, and do all sorts of stuff that requires good breathing.
I am an airport transportation driver for a pretty cool tennis academy here in town and I love the job. I get to drive cool kids around all day who come in from all over the world to play tennis.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, both my job and my fiancé’s job have been affected. Since no one is really flying right now I haven’t been to work in the last three to four weeks. So, my fiancé and I decided to make crafts to make some money and it’s been fun!”
“I Couldn’t Get Help”
“Recently, I started to experience shortness of breath and thought it could be coronavirus. It really scared me. I’ve been to the emergency room, walk-in clinic, and to two doctors. But no one wanted to test me because they said that I didn’t have a fever. They couldn’t give me any answers, so I was left not knowing what was wrong with me. I was scared, and I couldn’t get help. They totally dismissed me.
So, I called Physicians Regional and told them, ‘I’ve been everywhere to try to get checked and I’m spending all this money since I don’t have health insurance and I’m not working. All my money is going towards paying bills. I need help.’ The girl on the phone said, ‘Well, have you heard of MDsave? It’s a company that we highly recommend. It’s very easy to use.’ So, I started to research online.”
“They Were the First to Test Me”
“I went online on MDsave.com and navigated around. The site was super easy to use, and I loved it. I searched for a chest x-ray and (boom!) popped out a good price with Physicians Regional. When I went in for my appointment I told the girl at registration, ‘Hey, it’s my first time using this [MDsave]. Do I just show you the receipt or what? What do I do?’ And she was like, ‘Exactly.’ It was a super easy process.
They [Physicians Regional] were the first to get me in and test me. They really wanted to find out what was going on with me. Turns out that the shortness of breath was due to an inflammation in my respiratory system and not coronavirus. The hospital and staff were just awesome. They truly care and it actually shows.”
“Not Just a Dollar Sign”
“I just want to say I’m very grateful to MDsave because I needed to save as much money as humanly possible. MDsave actually cares and shows you that you’re just not a dollar sign or a number.
I’ve already told my two good friends about MDsave. One is in Connecticut and the other is in Massachusetts. So, thank you MDsave!”
