Dan Hunter <firstname.lastname@example.org> or 734-971-5248, and describe your requirements.

contact you, and you will, together, work out the logistics.

A: Part of the parking fee may be covered by the health care facility. The remainder of the fee
will be the responsibility of the patient.

be needed to help with transfers.
