HOW I CAN HELP
I will literally and figuratively meet you where you are – at your home, in the hospital ER, in a Skilled Nursing Facility, or anywhere else in the healthcare system. I will make your health concerns my top priority – to answer your questions about your diagnosis or treatments; to help you choose a new doctor or hospital; to help you resolve insurance matters and other unique problems. I will work with you until you feel you are on a safe path in making your own healthcare decisions.

WHY I BECAME A PROFESSIONAL HEALTHCARE ADVOCATE
I officially became a healthcare advocate when my brother Ed needed protection from the fragmentation and dangerous omissions of the healthcare system. I stepped in, contacted physicians and helped ensure he was given proper care. Long story short, it was only after I intervened that my brother received a vital, life-saving medication that relieved his respiratory distress. I will do this same kind of advocacy for each of my patients.
