I feel very fortunate to be a member of the HEAL loan team. These loans are funded through a special grant (from The Jewish Fund and matching donations) and are for individuals who need medical or dental procedures but can not qualify for a traditional loan. We are able to relax our requirements on co-signers and repayment schedules and can therefore provide assistance to the most vulnerable in our community.
As a practicing dentist and healthcare professional, I have the unique opportunity to review and discuss each case with the other members of the HEAL team. By pooling our expertise we are able to evaluate, validate and ultimately expedite the process so our clients can get the treatment they need. From a personal point of view, it is very gratifying to be part of an organization that facilitates members of our Jewish community in meeting their various needs while maintainig their dignity.
