The New GHC Experience Guarantee​​SM

At GHC-SCW, we give you the power to decide if your experience was worth what you paid.

If your experience at a GHC-SCW clinic doesn't meet your expectations, you can download our app, tell us about it, and at your request, we'll refund some or all of the costs associated with your visit.

We think that's just the right thing to do.
