When it comes to your health and the health of your family, understanding your options can give you the knowledge (and the power) to help us make the best health care decisions possible. Originally conceived over 8 years ago, Caring For Arizona was the first “on line” patient education portal of it’s kind, connecting those seeking new and unique medical treatments with some of the most forward thinking doctors in the state. A few years later through our partnership with KTVK 3 TV in Phoenix and KTTU / FOX and My 18 Tucson we are proud help inform and enhance the quality of life for countless people in Arizona who were now able to learn though our weekly television programs about a doctors, nurses or treatment options that can help them or someone they love…live a better life.
The health care decisions that we as individuals make are often the result of how much we understand about a particular condition that we have, or a procedure that we think we could benefit from. The more information we have about our options, and the medical providers who offer those treatments, the more likely we are to make informed healthcare decisions.
Because of our unparalleled access to some of Arizona’s most recognized names in medicine, Caring For Arizona offers you the ability to learn about many of the most exciting medical procedures in what many will agree is the best way possible, directly from the doctors who specialize in them.
