Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
There are many missed opportunities and options available to patients that go underutilized. With serious diagnoses come a whirlwind of emotions and a multitude of questions that can cloud a patients thought process of what to do and what avenues are available to them and their families. It may take an extended amount of time for patients and their families to process this new change in life and we understand that time is a precious factor that needs to be utilized proficiently.
As Healthcare Professionals and children of aging "baby boomers" with complex health conditions, we are very empathetic to client's needs. We are a family centered business and provide over 50 years' worth of experience in the U.S. and Canadian healthcare systems.
Our goal as patient advocates is to make ourselves available at your time of need to alleviate your anxiety and provide you with the appropriate and informative services possible to quickly get you through the maze of healthcare services and give you the best result in life. Preventing suffering and supporting your quality and quantity of life are important to us as advocates.
