"No one ever asks the patient what we think, we are kind of shoved out of it." ~Bev Schechtman

"We feel like everyone around us is going to treat us as though everything we say is a lie, that we're going to try to get out of whatever it is they think they're trying to catch us in, and we can't trust any of them." ~Bev Schechtman
"The way they set up the system patients can't be honest with our providers." ~Bev Schechtman
