Nothing compares to the compassion and energy Kara Dodds and Associates has for my daughter.   San Diego Regional Center paid for my daughter until she turned 3

and then I worked directly with Cassandra on my daughter's transition from SDRC to insurance.  The staff was nothing but thorough in getting all the information needed for billing.  They submitted all the bills to our company directly and followed up with any paperwork they requested. Of course,  we do have a $1,000.00 annual deductible.  I'm a parent of a special needs child who needs a lot of therapy and special medication. Money is tight and worries are high. But, I have been at Kara Dodds for 3 years now and would never look elsewhere. My therapist is so dedicated to my daughter and she loves seeing her each week. The office is busy but always friendly!  I often visit with Kara directly in the waiting room as she always makes herself available to answer any of my questions immediately. This is a small company does so much for the Autism Community and for ATPF which is how I was originally referred to them.
