ÂThe most valued information for consumers when making a healthcare decision is word of mouth Â whether from a physician or a neighbor. Our vision is to improve healthcare by providing patients with this word of mouth information to help them make informed decisions about their healthcare and aid in the selection of their healthcare providers...Â stated Joe Benza, Jr., CEO of Directories.MD.
