As your Patient Advocate, I will guide you through your healthcare needs by coordinating and managing your treatment plan. We will work closely together ensuring your needs are being met, and your questions and concerns are being answered.

Patient Advocacy

A Professional Voice by Your Side Every Step of the Way

Are you overwhelmed, confused, or worried about your healthcare needs? I can help. I will be your liaison by communicating with all members of your healthcare team—family, caregivers, treatment providers, insurance companies, and anyone else involved in your treatment plan. You will gain more control of your medical care in a way you didn’t know was possible, which ultimately will provide you with better results.

“Nancy is consistently a knowledgeable and empathetic ally who can understand and validate what we are going through.”
