What is a Patient Advocate?
How can a Patient Advocate help you stay healthy?
When it’s your health at stake it’s hard to stay calm and focused so you can be confident you are making informed decisions. That’s why people are turning to professional Patient Advocates to help them navigate the arduous road of healthcare and stay healthy.
So many questions, so little time. Is this how you’re feeling about your next appointment with your doctor? Would you rather feel empowered and less frustrated instead?
We all know the American healthcare system has become more complex and fragmented and the cost of medical care is increasingly falling on us, the consumer. Our fears and frustrations continue to grow in response.
I was anxious about my appointments. Janet helped me clarify my questions and the outcome I hoped for. I felt much clearer about what my doctors said and they welcomed her presence. She spoke their language.”
