  left quote blue     I  was completely lost when looking for new health insurance. I called several brokers, and none would take the time to explain everything to me. Mr. Macconnell took his time and explained everything to me and answered every question I asked, without sounding annoyed. I am so grateful for the amazing service! I highly recommend!!
