Why Are So Many Complex Medical Patients Ignored?
I founded Purity Patient Advocates LLC in 2021 after experiencing first hand, the fears and frustrations of having a complex, invisible, mystery illness. My expertise is helping clients find resolution who are suffering from chronic, complex, multi-symptom, and seemingly unsolvable medical conditions.
After spending several years running from doctor to doctor in Florida and Georgia with no concrete diagnosis, I found myself honing my investigative skills so I could solve my complex health puzzle.
As I was an extremely athletic and active person, I found my condition had severely impacted my quality of life, including my personal and professional relationships. I was suffering physically, emotionally and financially which magnified my stress levels. I would have given anything to have a knowledgeable private patient advocate help me solve my 10 year puzzle! I realized there was a huge unmet need for individuals who are frequently ignored by our healthcare system.
What emerged from my years of suffering is my passion and purpose: to assist my clients through utilizing a comprehensive assessment which may identify critical areas previously overlooked or not fully understood by their health care practitioners. It also includes incorporating a customized «Plan of Action» for my clients, which provides functional, integrative and/or conventional medicine healthcare navigation.
Millions of invisibly ill individuals are women who have a chronic, complex illness with no identified root cause. Sadly, our current conventional healthcare system is fragmented and not designed for complex patients with unusual symptoms...
By 2020, the US Department of Health and Human Services estimates that 157 million Americans will be afflicted with a chronic illness and the US Census Bureau estimates 96% of chronic illnesses are invisible. Millions of these invisibly ill individuals are women who have a chronic, complex illness with no identified root cause. Sadly, our current, conventional healthcare system is fragmented and not designed for a complex patient with unusual symptoms to obtain a timely, correct diagnosis.
Women, in particular, are made to feel as though they have anxiety or it must be «All in Your Head.» The standard/conventional medicine model is based on addressing symptoms instead of identifying the root cause. This can present a serious problem for a complex case as they are shuffled among multiple physicians with no concrete diagnosis or a misdiagnosis. The bottom line: No one should have to suffer long term while trying to obtain a correct diagnosis and treatment plan.
Although I provide services to both men and women, my focus and expertise is on women. This is due to women being maternal, intuitive, and more inclined to be seeking answers. My goal as a independent patient advocate is to serve as a trusted advisor to my clients. I am transparent, ethical and will always have my client's best interests at heart.
No one should have to suffer long term while trying to obtain a correct diagnosis and treatment plan.
Clients who come to us for help may have been previously diagnosed with conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia or an autoimmune disease such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Lupus, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, early stage MS or early stage Parkinson's Disease or Dementia. In some cases, they contracted Covid-19 but never fully recovered. They may have fatigue and brain fog that has severely impacted their quality of life. Most of these clients were highly active, athletic, driven individuals who want their quality of life back to be able to participate in life activities again.
