I am a trained physician who understands everything that is going on because I have cared for patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings for years. I have expert knowledge in the diagnosis and management of multitudinous disease states. I can read and interpret medical notes, labs, imaging, pathology reports, and I understand what is being done versus what should be done. I know surgeries and procedures. I am a pharmacologist so I understand medication indications and mechanisms, and contraindications. I can explain all of this to you in any way you want and at the depth you wish to understand.
I can communicate with your providers to figure out what they’re doing and why, and compare it to best practices. I am ever vigilant when it comes to medical error and I am not afraid to confront anyone if I believe you are not receiving the best care or if something seems suspicious. I will keep all your medical records organized and summarized for you. If you’re in my area, I can accompany you to appointments and keep an eye on you at the hospital. If we work together online we can met before and after appointments so I can prep you and then debrief you. I can accompany you virtually on your cell phone or other device if you would like.
I am a trained scientist that interprets preclinical and clinical research with ease, dig deep, and I can comprehend medicine at a level that no regular physician can.
I also know and interpret medical law well, and know where to look if I don’t immediately have an answer.
I essentially have you covered from multiple angles, and “I can’t figure this out” is nonexistent in my vocabulary. I am an investigator, a critical thinker, a problem solver. I am accustomed to finding a way around obstacles and I am tenacious. And most of all, I do it because I CARE.
- My geographical area of practice is Richardson, TX
I have been asked to cover up medical negligence as a provider. As a patient, I have been prescribed medication I am deathly allergic to (stated in my medical record) and have caught other medical errors, and without my training I wouldn't have known to say something. I notice how medical exams have become sloppier and how providers do not have the time nor make an attempt to explain anything and patients are afraid to ask. Empathy in medicine feels scarce.
I hear more and more horror stories from friends and colleagues, detailing their own or a loved one’s experiences in a doctor’s office or hospital, and in my professional opinion most patient care now borders on negligence. I realized that I too took the Hippocratic oath, and it is my responsibility to do something. I won’t go back to this system as a practitioner, but I can and will use my knowledge and training to ensure patients receive the health care they deserve. Even more, I want to teach you skills to advocate for yourself.
