I don't recall the last time I've had a health care staff go as above and beyond as Marina did for my son. Beyond providing amazing care, and being super personable and conscientious, Marina was instrumental in helping to obtain medical coverage for a genetics test that was not covered by my insurance (without her assistance, we would not have been able to pay for the test, and would not have been able to obtain a diagnosis which helped change the course of medical care for my son). Marina was available always for questions and help. If health care workers were more like Marina, we'd have the ideal health care system. I can't thank her (and Dr. Julian Agosto Martinez) enough! UCLA is lucky to have her on staff.
