I’m so grateful for the services that DMR has provided to me. In the midst of this global crisis, I was very worried that I would not be able to access the health care services that I need. DMR’s Telehealth has helped me to maintain control of my health and continue my physical recovery without risking my or anyone else’s health. Thank you so much Leonard and everyone at DMR!Sarah
