Our mission is to make Your Health Access a resource for consumers, physicians, surgeons and allied health care professionals. The information in this website is not meant to diagnose or treat medical conditions. Nor is this information a substitute for a consultation with a physician. The website was designed to help support the objectives of physicians to better educate consumers about health care access and to help people learn more about healthy living.

Currently, there are more than 400 articles that address the most relevant issues surrounding access to care on our site. We add new content and update content on an ongoing basis in order to keep you up-to-date with current issues.

* Content includes quotes by physicians in their respective specialties to help ensure accurate information.
* Physicians located in the Find a Doctor section may be able to help support your health care needs.

We hope you’ll find Your Health Access a useful resource as you research information about the many aspects of health care access. We also hope this information empowers you to take charge of your own health care. Contact: lesleyatco@hotmail.com
