Nada C. Huron

“I highly recommend Karen to help you purchase Long Term Care Insurance. She is very sincere and wants the best for each of her clients. She treated me like a long time friend who had my best interests in mind. She patiently explained everything and answered all my questions. Even though I was a challenge to underwriting she went to bat for me. . . she definitely went the extra mile for me. I especially liked one comment she made – buying LTCI will give you peace of mind. Being a Westsider I don’t like to spend my money foolishly. She reminded me that I pay for car and house insurance each year and never have to use it. That made it stick and I knew this was the best decision for me and my family.”
Marie Schaffer

“The choosing of long term care can be a very twisted and confusing road to walk down for the insurance naïve. Karen’s strength is her years of service and knowledge in this area. The quiet and reserved manner that she uses puts the potential customer at ease early on in the experience.

“This behavior instills trust that this will be an experience in which the consumer can relax and absorb the information without fear. Karen will match the consumer to a product that will suit the needs as well as the financial concerns of the family. My wife and I highly recommend that future clients use Karen Rosenthal for their long term care insurance broker.”

Anne and Charlie Tooley

“I have purchased a LTC policy from Prudential.  This was not something that I knew much about, or thought much about.  From the first contact by phone, Karen handled this sale with exceptional ability.  She asked for an opportunity to make a home visit, which I finally agreed to.  She called before time, let me know when she would arrive, and did that for all 3 visits.  She handled my objections and questions very well.  In all regards Karen is very professional.  She knows her product and is very comfortable in providing answers.  Suffice to say she is excellent.”
John F. Beckmeyer

“All meetings were informative and helped with the decision to purchase LTC.  I appreciate the “what to expect” on the phone interview. In retrospect, LTC a wise purchase; your presentation kept me from rejecting LTC “out of hand.”  You were always pleasant and enthusiastic.  (While me? obstinate, obtuse and not always pleasant.) I sincerely appreciate your effort – I think I’ll keep the policy (smiley face) " 
Colonel in Oxford (retired)

"Karen Rosenthal is a very knowledgeable Long-Term Care insurance advisor.  We had met with others before her and were just confused.  But even on our initial phone call with Karen, we could tell she had a lot more answers and ideas. She shopped the coverage to our budget. She explained everything thoroughly and answered many questions.  It was a pleasure to work with her."  
Martha Shipman                                                         

“You accomplished your goals as above (on feedback form), 100%! It was delightful working with you! I appreciated your ability to clarify everything for me as we made our way through the LTC application process.  The only tiny suggestion would pertain to me not knowing that you needed payment at the 1st juncture and even the last but I did come prepared.  (Wasn’t quite clear if I waited to pay after the 30-day review.) Not sure if a timeline would help for client (?) No problem.  :)

Stephen E. Brockman

"Selecting long term care insurance was a complicated decision, both financially and in terms of the many options available.  In addition, my past experience with insurance (health in particular, but not long term care) has been problematic.  Karen patiently answered all of my questions in detail researching them when necessary.  I have appreciated her thorough, kind approach throughout.  Thanks, Karen!"
Fran Hendrick 

"Karen, I thought you did an excellent job explaining LTC during our first meeting.  Having done some research ahead of time, I wanted to get through it quicker but that would have left Bridget at a disadvantage.  It was much better to have you go through the explanation more methodically.  You also did a superb job in explaining the policy options and I appreciate your candor on options that were not worth the expense.  I think your personal experiences at LTC as it related to you and your family were useful as well.  Thank you very much! 
Christopher Curtis and Bridget Nitkiewicz

Kathy Giordano

"Karen has extensive experience, both personal and professional, in the field of long-term care. This was extremely helfpul as she guided us through the process of obtaining our own insurance.  Karen provided extensive literature about the topic and was always happy to answer our questions, whether by phone or email.  We especially appreciated the comparison of several insurers which she drew up for us.  She made a confusing, and occasionally emotional, subject manageable and "do-able."  Thanks, Karen!"

"It was a pleasure working with Karen Rosenthal, a consumate professional who provided excellent service and information on Long Term Care."  
Christine Mague 

"It was a pleasure working with Karen to address my long-term care needs.  After I asked her to review a policy I already had she provided valuable comments that resulted in changing my LTC plan to one with more advantageous features at a better cost value.  I am well pleased with the final result. Throughout this process she was professional and knowledgeable, yet was always readily willing to investigate and consult with her resources to assure accuracy in responding to questions and issues I would raise.  She would also point out important aspects I hadn't considered and did so in clear, understandable language.  Throughout she clearly demonstrated the perspective and insight of experience.  I would highly recommend her as an advocate for anyone wanting to discuss LTC planning."

D.E. Rosselot

 "Karen R. Rosenthal has been very thorough throughout!  We have been through many ups and downs in our almost year long decision making, at one point even considering giving up the whole idea.  Karen, though, was very steady and always prepared with very detailed answers to our many quesitons.  We were not an "easy case," but she had the analysis and numbers at the ready each time.  You are very lucky to have her: always organized and detail oriented!  It was a pleasure.  
Dr. Tsila B. Evers and Paul Evers  

"Our experience with Karen Rosenthal proved to be an extremely valuable use of our time.  Long term care decision making required us to find a reputable, patient and knowledgeable professional to assist us in defining our objectives en route to developing a long term care plan that was individually tailored to our needs.  Karen was understanding and exhibited absolutely no high pressure sales pressure during our deliberations.  We would recommend her services to anyone considering long term care." 
Sandy and Art Pizzano
