Free 15 min Intro Call
Years of Experience
Virtual Support Available
As a trained medical doctor, I understand how doctors think and use this experience to help individuals navigate the complex healthcare system and help facilitate a successful doctor-patient relationship. My commitment is to the individual and to ensure you feel listened to, get your questions answered, and gain a full understanding of your treatment options. As an independent advocate, I work directly for you and your interests. I've previously supported patients by: building effective relationships with providers, helping individuals understand their diagnosis, researching and identifying treatment options, navigate insurance benefits, submitting appeals, insurance billing, pharmacy benefits management, medical bill review and negotiation, and general case management.
I will help empower you based on your individual needs so that you can make the best-informed decisions for yourself or the person you support. My focus is to listen and educate, always while showing empathy and patience, to research, and to assist in communicating with everyone involved in your care. With regards to insurance and billing support: As an experienced care manager having supported thousands of clients I understand how to navigate this complex system. I am well versed in the the strategies used by insurance companies to deny care or payment. I will advocate for you relentlessly and will make sure the fair result is attained.
I offer an introductory consultation, free of charge. During this initial conversation I will learn about your concerns. During this introductory call, please plan on discussing the concerns and/or challenges you are currently experiencing as well as your ideal outcome and goals. We will also talk about how an advocate can support you. This introductory call is also an opportunity for you to interact with me and ask me questions about my approach. After the introductory meeting, if you are ready to begin our journey together, I will share a contract with you that outlines the services we discussed for our partnership. If agreed, we can commence working together! Looking forward to meeting with you!
