You made it easy by coming to my home to discuss options for a Medicare Supplement, explained the choices and providers clearly so I could make the best choice for my needs, went above and beyond to help me select the best drug plan for my needs, provided phone numbers and web sites so I could finalize my choices, and followed up afterwards to make sure there were no problems. And when I thanked Laura Pecina for her efforts, she said she was just doing her job. I greatly appreciate both Laura Pecina and Sams/Hockaday, and will be proud to recommend them to others.
