When the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare, was first put into effect, I, like millions of Americans were confused and a bit afraid as to how to enter into this unchartered territory. Little did I know that the friendly face sitting at a kiosk in a mall on a Saturday afternoon as the deadline to enroll was fast approaching, would soon become my saving grace. His name was Sonny Gurney.
Sonny must have seen the look of anxiety on my face and perhaps felt the fear in my heart when I read his sign. This man was my only hope. Sonny was kind, understanding, knowledgeable and above all, gave me the priceless peace of mind that I was going to be alright. Prior to meeting Sonny, I had tried making phone calls to several 1-800 numbers for assistance and was always left with more unanswered questions and concerns, feeling like a completely inadequate consumer. Sonny’s approach and professionalism was refreshingly different, as he had the welcomed answers and solutions I had been seeking.
Sonny found me a valuable metal gap plan that I chose to participate in. This plan ended up paying off greatly after an unexpected and extended medical stay of mine. He has faithfully called me annually to check up on me, to help make sure that I am in the most economical plan that provides me with the best coverage to meet my medical needs. And to this day, all of the expert advice and plan choices have never cost me one dime.
It has been several years since that day at the mall. I recently visited Sonny at his new, beautiful, state of the art office in Auburn Hills. Not only has Sonny helped me, but I have entrusted him with the medical insurance decisions of my adult disabled children as well. Sonny also made a house call to my parent’s home who are senior citizens. He patiently helped them choose the best plan to fit their needs. I exclusively trust Sonny Gurney, as he has helped my entire family with the single most important decisions of our lives, our health insurance.
