We organize key information to help individuals make informed choices in their search for Health and Wellness Providers. To Your Health, NY provides profiles, listings, objective and subjective ratings or reviews, feedback, comments, lists based on specific criteria (e.g., in the form of search results), and other information, profiles and materials provided by us or our users (Site content provided by registered and non-registered users, collectively, “User Content”), regarding Health and Wellness Providers as well as articles, editorials, and personal accounts in our Blog and Forum(s) (collectively, the “Site Materials” or “components”).

The Site and its Site Materials are offered for informational purposes; that said, Site Materials may include statements of opinion from us, our users, and other contributors.
