The Historic Biloxi Lighthouse, like all lighthouses, served to guide mariners out of distress and into safe harbour. We at Reeves & Mestayer feel that it is symbolic of our responsibilities to the community. In conjunction with this mission we offer the following links to various websites. Some of the sites offer help for those in distress while others, such as Nursing Home Compare and The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration websites, provide information to help make your family safer. These sites have proven helpful to many of those we have represented over the years.
Nursing Home Compare
From the official U.S. Government Medicare website. This tool provides detailed information regarding the past performance of every Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing home in the United States.
The Voice of The Health Care Consumer. Surgery does have risks, but the better the surgeon, the lower those risks will be. This site advises the health care consumer on what to look for to receive the best care possible and even provides a search feature for reviewing and comparing surgeons in your area.
