Opinions

Really great services that you offer – to check hemoglobin, diabetes, general health check for people, dental – and it’s all free of charge.  This is a good place where people can come out and make sure they are healthy and do some preventative health checks. - Glen Bautista of Life Stream

The health fair brings lots of awareness about health to the community.  It helps less fortunate people receive the services which they usually cannot afford.  It is a very nice way to do service of mankind, in reality it is a service to God. - Dr. Uday Shah, DDS
