The folks at this location are so professional and kind. I am a recent transplant to the area, but without having landed a job, I also do not have health insurance. Thank goodness for Planned Parenthood, I was able to receive help selecting a birth control method so my husband and I can make sure we are "planning our parenthood."
I am so grateful to PP and all the work they do with physical exams, birth control, STD prevention and treatment, cancer screenings, etc. The list goes on--there is something at PP for everyone!
I can't express my appreciation enough. They took care of me when my primary dr. found cancerous cells. I lost my job right after the bad news and went over to the Orange office. I was taken care of immediately by the wonderful staff. I wouldn't know what I would of done without Planned Parenthood. I'm working again and plan on donating/volunteering as soon as I get stuff sorted.
