our customers say it best:
  • Joy Ride" has enlarged my life in many ways! When I call the office the staff are very helpful!! I have had many drivers over the months - EVERY driver is very courteous. I appreciate that the driver always makes sure that I am at the Dr office on correct day & time, rather than just dropping me off.–Jan B.
