IMGAngel was incredibly helpful in reviewing, editing, and preparing my wife's documents. She is an IMG from Colombia. Last year she began her residency at a highly acclaimed hospital in New York. Using IMGAngel's service took her from two interviews in 2010 to 13 interviews in 2011. She pre-matched by December of 2011. I highly recommend IMGAngel for anyone who is an IMG and wants to make sure they have pristine documents and interview skills. Hope this helps!

The website is IMGAngel.com
