About My Services:
- Type(s) of Advocacy: Medical / Navigational
- Years of Experience: 20 years, Family Physician
Whether it’s managing a chronic condition with multiple providers, helping with an elderly parent’s smooth transition from hospital care to a skilled nursing facility, an undiagnosed medical conundrum, or finding the right clinical trial for a serious treatment-resistant illness, Summit Healthcare Advocates offers a wide array of services to help you achieve your goal. With years of experience as a family physician, I understand the strengths as well as the fractures, gaps, and stressors in our medical system that compromise quality care. I firmly believe that every patient should have an independent advocate on their medical team to bridge communication gaps, coordinate care, and ensure understanding and a voice for well-informed decision making. After retiring from clinical practice, I felt that the logical next step was to fill this gap and founded Summit Healthcare Advocates.
As your independent advocate, I can help you navigate our healthcare system, provide informed oversight and coordination for your medical team, and help you understand your condition and treatment options while offering compassionate, responsive, and personalized guidance.
