"My recent hour long consult with Mary Shomon was simply the bright light that I needed at this time. I had literally come close to losing hope after my repeated visits to numerous specialists only left me with a few letters stating that all lab reports were "normal". I "appear healthy". I am so appreciative of Mary, and her dedication and willingness to provide such an invaluable service that can help turn a life around. I am quite sure that it will mine!"
