I left my appointment at Planned Parenthood that day as a new advocate for them. The experience exceeded all expectations. Then, my Pap smear came back irregular. It happens, but when you don’t have insurance that irregularity can be a nightmare financially. Planned Parenthood stood by me. They recommended me to a program that was willing to treat me at a reduced cost.

Since last summer, I have told all of my friends and family all about my experience. The cost is so incredibly reasonable, the people were warm and caring, and the facility was stunning.

Honestly, even with insurance I still plan to be a patient at Planned Parenthood. I will advocate for them and will encourage others to do the same.”
