R.M., Customer
Patty Gogerty is the ABSOLUTE BEST person around to discuss healthcare for seniors! My husband and I are both nurses and are inundated with insurance "plans" and things wanting our money... She is smart, knowledgable, and available to her clients... We have told many people about her and what she can do for them, but many are skeptical, to say the least, with all we have coming at us daily..... We will never change! Give 'em heck Patty! Linda & Harold Baldock

I've always been able to get very helpful information from my agent Patty Gogerty, and she got me all set up with all my Medicare plans three years ago and continues to steer me through my renewals (or changes) each year!

Sam Hockaday has been a blessing! With all the insurance confusion out there since Obamacare it was hard to find the right insurance for my specific needs but Patty G made it easy for us. She did all the work and continues to work for us. I am so pleased with Sam Hockaday ins that I send everyone that's needing help to them. Thank you Sam and Patty G for taking the stress out of our retirement changes for our insurance needs!! Richard and Frances
