Ally (I-Hsuan) Hsu
I want to help more people, learn how to provide the best patient care, and obtain invaluable experiences from my involvement with the Medicare class.
I am looking forward to serving the Medicare beneficiaries that require help in choosing the best plan for themselves, especially those who need help in a language other than English.
