Our Clients//

I have been working with Olive Helfert on the remote case management for over a year at this stage. I find Olive excellent to deal with. She is highly efficient, very pleasant and her turnaround time from referral to receipt of report is exceptional. I would have no hesitation in recommending Olive and the remote case management system where face to face assessments are not appropriate or necessary
