Love it! Extremely useful app in a clear and easy to follow format. It is packed full of information that answers most any question you could have about the Parathyroid procedure (Pre through Post). I've read and reread the instructions, recommendations, and FAQs many times. Thanks for providing such a useful guide, it definitely helped relieve stress over what to expect and finding answers to questions about what to do.

Really impressive to have an app to help patients through the process. It's 90% just reference material, but that is because that is what's needed. This included color pictures of several things, such as which calcium pills to buy. Extensive FAQ. All is organized by the order in which things will matter. Awesome.

My "out of state " insurance considered NPC IN NETWORK. I'm glad I checked. NPC made it very easy for me to fly in, +big discount at hotel. ,plus free ubers to & from hospital..they are extremely organized and you get a personal coordinator who will deal with your insurance and makes sure everything goes smoothly for you. I was very impressed.
