Medical Appointment Accompaniment

PAFY nurses are available to attend all medical appointments to ensure all relevant information is relayed to the attending physician to ensure proper diagnosis and care. PAFY will also relay the appropriate diagnosis and treatment information to patient families to ensure constant understanding and proper healthcare management.
