Sometimes it's hard to get through to a person on the phone. Half the time that person acts like they could care less about your issue. The last time I called the girl said that she was going to replace our unit. Ours wasn't working at all. She said she would send one out. She started to and the call but I asked her when the unit was gonna be sent out she said the next day. I asked when it was going to be received because she was still turned on the call and she said oh that will be next Thursday. I was calling on Friday. I explained to her that there was no way that we could be without a unit for an entire week I explained that I needed the unit overnighted. She did it. It was just frustrating because if I had not stopped if I had not asked questions it would've been an entire week before I received what I needed. I did not feel that she cared and I felt like I was annoying her.

My father had to use the system twice & I was immediately notified by medical alert. When the system was activated in error the operator was very understanding. I would recommend Medical Alert to people in need of this type of assistance.

I think Medical Alert's customer service is good. Sometimes it takes a while for them to come online when the alarm goes off, but they're very good with asking questions and making sure you're okay after that. So far, I liked using it. One thing I don't like is that sometimes it goes off when I don't want it to go off. Besides that, I do have to say that the cost went down. I appreciate that.

I purchased Medical Alert for a family member because she kept falling when nobody was around. Their representatives were very good. When she pushes the button for help, somebody's always here. There's no waiting and they send help out if it's needed.

I honestly don't know what system I bought, but I do like using it. I haven't had a problem with their customer service, and my overall experience has been good. Even the fire department has come over several times because I pressed the button.

Our system went off one time, and the police and EMT broke into my house because nobody answered. I was in a hotel at that time, and they tracked me down to there. They did a great job tracking me down and calling all the numbers I provided. Plus, they nailed everything back into place, and did a great job with that as well. I'm just very pleased with it, and very happy that I have it. The people who answer the phone are very polite and very knowledgeable. I called for help once while I was away from home, and they still called my husband, just to let him know what had happened.

My daughter had been telling me to get a service like this, but I didn't think we needed it until I fell. I think the service is wonderful; they're very nice people. One day I dropped it, and somebody came on the line right away. It's nice that they're right there when you need them to be.

Their representatives were very polite and very nice the couple of times I've had to use it. They sent the ambulance right away, and it was here within a few minutes. It annoys me to wear the necklace around my neck, but it does work. I think every senior should get one.

My son had me purchase Medical Alert after I fell, and I think their customer service has been very well so far. I purchased the device that goes around my wrist, and they've been very prompt to answer when I've had to use it. It's been a very positive experience.

Before going with Medical Alert, I paid $60 for the same service, so this one is cheaper. Plus, the representatives were very good. I love using it! I fell one time, and they sent the paramedics right away as soon as I pressed the button. In my opinion, anybody that's over 60 years old should have it, just in case they fall and can't get up.

My husband died, and I was alone, so I decided to purchase a service like this. I've had it for a little over 2 years, and I only had to use it once. It was worth every dollar! The paramedics came over immediately; they saved my life!

This saved me the 3 times I've fallen! I have an improved pendant that detects a fall immediately, and it's been outstanding. They come when you need them, and I just like the equipment. Medical Alert has always been there for me.

They're excellent! I fell this past January, and I had a really hard time getting back to my room, from the living room. I called through Medical Alert, and they helped me get right back where I needed to be. I just absolutely love it, and my children like it because they got a peace of mind; and I do to!

The system has been coming in handy. There's been a few falls, and they come over right away, so it's been very helpful. I'm so thankful that they're available all the time, and that they are really reliable. The paramedics are here right away. It's really been a life saver.

The customer service has been very good. I use a walker to get around, and I'm prone to falling down and smashing my face all the time, so I like it. I used it a couple of times now. I just push the button, and they automatically answer.

It's been very helpful because I've fallen several. Due to a few back surgeries and knee replacements, if I fall now, I can't get up by myself, so they've been really good. they're here in a few minutes. It's been a very positive experience; they've been very helpful.

They've helped me so much. I purchased the Fall Detection for ten extra dollars a month, but it does not go off automatically. Besides that, I think it's worth every penny, because it gives you that little security. Overall, they're very good.

We like using it very much. I purchased it for a family member, and she's used it a couple of times already; it works very well and very fast. I think that this is for anybody that is taking care of an elder person that can't be there all the time. It's very essential to have something like this.

At first, the device was a little shaky, but it's come a long way. It's really good. I've had a couple problems, but we ironed them out and I'm very happy with Medical Alert. I don't know too many people that have Medical Alert, but I know my experience has been good. Whenever I call, they're there for me, and I don't know what I would do without them.

The features are great and I like the idea behind it, however, I don't like that it's too sensitive. I set it off frequently and it's not very comfortable around my neck, so I don't wear it very much. Besides that, I'm satisfied with the quality of their service; it's also very affordable.

After several falls I decided I really needed this service. They were fantastic and very knowledgeable! One of the representatives didn't know the answer to one of my questions, but put me on hold to find it. It gave me a lot of peace of mind. My wife and I are really happy to have it; it's like my little buddy who keeps me going.
