Finding the Best Care: Financial Assistance for Travel
If your local doctor is up to date on the latest research related to reflux treatment, sit back and count your lucky stars. If not, and you find yourself in need of a second opinion in a far away place – fear not, help may be available.
There are several organizations willing to assist you if you have exhausted your local medical options and feel the need to connect with a nationally-recognized doctor or medical group. Many times, these doctors are located in another part of the country, and flying to get the best help available may be your best option.
