Bay Alarm Medical Alert review
Response time was fast.Operators were courteous. Price for mobile system too high compared to other medical alert available.Mobile unit too heavy. Other firms offer more update technology at a lower price. See Life Station who offers a lightweight,waterproof pendant with GPS, WIFI and voice control in a smaller pendant for only $32 ,mo(discount price) with free shipping ,no activation fee and no long term contract.

Medical Guardian Medical Alerts review
I prefer to wear the alarm using the belt clip, rather than around my neck. It will not stay clipped. Very poorly made. Called company to tell this. Customer service rep said , "I've never had anyone else who wore it on belt." Really ? C'mon ! Company answers alarm calls quickly.

Medical Guardian Medical Alerts review
I bought our Medical Guardian service plan a number of months ago. This system is approved as being adequate supervision of the person you are charged with caring for. The necklace is easy to put on and remove with magnetic closure in back. An extra bonus is that I myself was included on the plan. Very satisfied with our plan.

Medical Guardian Medical Alerts review
I called for some information for my mom. I was not intending to sign up. Robin was so good at informing me about all the services. I ended up paying for a full year and insurance by the time we hung up. He took his time and never rushed me. He answered all my questions no matter how many times I asked the same question. He is excellent at his job. I never looked anywhere else.
