Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
I have been working in the healthcare field for over 20 years. My career started as a nurse working in oncology at Princeton Medical Center. As a nurse and medical education specialist, I thought that the health care system worked well for patients. However, once my daughter became seriously ill and medically complicated, I realized how difficult and confusing the health care system can be and why it is important to have someone advocate for you.

Having worked in the hospital setting, I saw many instances where patients and their family members were confused about treatment options or did not understand the plan of care that was being prescribed. They were hesitant to ask questions. I saw this most recently when my father was hospitalized. He was very hesitant to ask questions, but once I was able to get his questions answered he was more compliant with the treatments and his recovery went very well. He was able to have options to choose from that best suited his circumstances.

Too often I see clients and their families facing extreme stress and anxiety in regard to the medical care that is being prescribed. They have questions that are not being answered, concerns that are not being addressed. And most often they don't know what questions to ask.

This is why I founded the Patient Advocate Agency. Today I am passionate about using my knowledge and experience to help patients navigate the very complicated and costly health care system by providing support and advice for my clients.
