Extremely communicative and helped my dad get an appointment with one of the top centers in Philadelphia. I'm so grateful for this center. They assisted with information to nutrition to legal help and assisting with scheduling appointments. Special thanks to Danielle!
The Mesothelioma Center provides excellent services/information and are very knowledgeable in their field of expertise. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking help in this area of health.
I would highly recommend this group! They have been so informative and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for a better patient advocate for sure! Danielle has been super awesome and supportive!!
My dad was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma in October 2020. That same night, with tears in my eyes I searched frantically to learn about this terrible cancer and what we were facing. I stumbled across the Mesothelioma Center at asbestos.com. Despite the late hour, I received a call from Karen Selby (on staff nurse) less than a minute after entering my information on their website contact form. That call birthed our very helpful connection with several other persons in this organization who helped us. Sadly, my dad passed away just 4 months after his diagnosis. Aaron Munz successfully guided my parents and, following my dad's death, me and my mother in the sbestos-related claims to the VA. The process of working with the VA takes time, but the Mesothelioma Center was right there with us every step of the way. Thank you Aaron and everyone at the Mesothelioma Center for the work you do and the help you have been to me in my endeavor to handle this process for my mother. Thank you for your quick responses to all of my emails and for giving me good information and advice. My God bless you for the service you render to hurting and scared families
On behalf of our entire family we would like to say thank you for the support that we have received from the Mesothelioma Center. Karen Selby and Aaron Muntz have been caring, supportive and professional in all aspects of our journey. We would highly recommend this group for any support that you may need regarding mesothelioma. Thank you for all you do.
