A visit to Eleanor's home for her private consultations always leaves me cheerful, and much better dressed!”

I am comfortable and look natural.”

My problem is a bit different and nonetheless she has found excellent answers, two years in a row. I have never felt embarrassed in any way, which certainly has happened during other fittings. I can now wear clothing I couldn't have worn before. I have recommended Eleanor to several friends and wish to thank her for her superb service.”

“I found the experience of getting fitted for a breast prosthesis very comfortable in the private surroundings provided by Best Alternative. I had my lumpectomy two years ago and I was not aware of what was available. Eleanor fitted me with a pretty bra and a prosthesis. To my surprise, it looks as if this is not going to cost me a penny! Eleanor explained the details to me. You get a grant from the Ontario Ministry of Heath towards the prosthesis. As I have other Health Coverage they will cover the rest of the cost of the prosthesis and allow me 3 bras per year. Wow free bras! My concern is that until I met Eleanor I had no idea that this help was available. Thank you Eleanor for your kindness and professional advice.”
by MARGARET Burlington

by MARGARET Burlington

“When I first phoned Eleanor 10 years ago, I was pleased that I was given an appointment. I was so happy to be greeted by a warm, caring woman in a very private setting and not in a store with others coming and going. I have never gone anywhere else for my prothesis and bras - to me that is unthinkable. Eleanor makes sure I look good in my clothes. I highly recommend Eleanor to all breast cancer patients.”

    FINALLY, thanks to Eleanor's expertise I now have a comfortable, mastectomy bra.
    The fitting was conducted in a very pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. Eleanor provided me with much information and helped me with the Government form which she also supplied. She's a treasure and I would highly recommend her to anyone who has undergone a mastectomy. She's truly a treasure.

    I have been visiting Eleanor for prosthesis, bras and camisoles for many years now. It is always a pleasure to visit her home and receive such private service. Eleanor is knowledgeable, patient and very savvy about getting coverage through the Government and insurance providers. I am so please to have found Best Alternative. Having a properly fitted prosthesis and comfortable bras makes me so much more comfortable. I am very pleased to have found this lovely lady and her top rate business. You will not regret making an appointment.

    It was an absolute pleasure to meet with Eleanor after going to two other mastectomy specialists over the past year she was an absolute breath of fresh air. She pointed out issues to me as to why I needed a particular size of prosthesis that no one else had noticed or mentioned previously. You feel totally comfortable in her home office and not rushed in decision making. I am delighted to have finally found someone I feel I can trust and truly has my best interests in mind.

    I have been going to Eleanor since my mastectomy 10 years ago and have recommended several women to her. She is an angel when you really need one. She is so professional and her home office so cozy and comfortable. She has a great range of products and takes such care to make you feel at ease. Even after moving up north, I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else. Thank you Eleanor for your care and understanding. Iris
