What Lingraphica Users and their Caregivers Are Saying
Paola greeted my husband by name. She explained why she needed all of our insurance information before contacting Carmen. She confirmed that the info we gave her was correct. She was patient and interested in answering our questions. She promised follow-up email and to be available in the future if needed.

The representative was cheerful, answered my questions thoroughly. I didn’t feel rushed or pressured in any way. I also appreciated her optimistic but realistic appraisal of insurance coverage unknowns. I learned a lot and felt supported around the recovery process partners who’ve had strokes. Unexpected.

Lingraphica gives a way of communication, and for that I am grateful.

[I’m impressed with] the professionalism of the people who work for the company, as well as their caring attitude and approach to the client. Also…everyone associated with the company is completely committed to doing all that they can do to make sure that one feels like a real asset to the company and not just another customer. I loved working with everyone involved with my case! Thank you for the opportunity to say that!!!

My husband got the Lingraphica device just recently, and he is getting familiar with it. The lady that I talked to was very friendly and explained all the procedures very well. If we have any concerns on how to get the most of it, I won’t hesitate to call them for help.
