I am a retired Registered Nurse who is soon approaching use of the Medicare Health System. I felt overwhelmed as I navigated through all the Medicare pamphlets, advertisements, and YouTube videos. I consider myself so very fortunate to have been able to schedule an appointment with Carmelo DeFranco. He was very patient answering all my questions (there were a lot of them!) and so knowledgeable about Medicare plans. Carmelo was thorough in explaining different options, pointing out the positive and negative aspects - if there were any - of each plan. I was impressed by his efficiency and timeliness when he called me the following morning and sent an e-mail to inform me that most of my doctors (including my husband's doctors) would be accepted under the Medicare plan he proposed. He was kind and attentive to my health insurance concerns. Thank you Carmelo DeFranco and NYC Business Group! You are a wonderful resource and anchor in this perplexing medical insurance transition.
