I spent 10 years suffering while I tried to find a doctor who took me seriously. Visana allows me to find faster care and gives me a way to manage my disease.



I wish I had Visana Health when I was trying to get diagnosed. It took me forever to get a real diagnosis, and it was so lonely and isolating. This tool will help so many women!



Offering Visana would tell me an employer is sympathetic, willing to work with me, and also would allow me to be more productive. It's a win-win!
