Advocate's Rating


I was in desperate need of a Patient Advocate. My sister had been in the hospital over a year at that point and it became increasingly stressful and overwhelming for me to handle all of the responsibilities on my own. I feel blessed to have found Barbara through a doctor who had recommended her. There were many situations that arose where I needed her support, guidance and expertise. Barbara was always on top of things going straight to the source… be it communicating with hospital personnel, attending meetings and the ability to resolve issues always in a calm, yet effective manner. My sister had multiple doctors appointments and needed transportation set up. I felt confident and at ease knowing that Barbara would always follow through in getting her there. I was very impressed with the notes Barbara would keep, detailed and accurate, she would email them to me promptly after gathering information and also when tasks were completed, keeping me abreast on developments. Barbara also assisted me in finding my sister a wonderful Skilled Nursing Facility after my sister left the hospital. Barbara is a very compassionate person and she truly cares about her clients and their needs. I’m so grateful for all she has done for our family… I highly recommend her.

Barbara was instrumental in providing all the necessary assistance in coordinating the proper medical treatments for my mom and getting her into a great assisted living facility.

Barbara was a life-saver for us. We needed help relocating an elderly tenant who needed frequent medical care and we wanted to make sure she was taken care of. We did not have the time or the knowledge on how to help her apply for Medicaid and find new housing. Barbara is a fabulous clinician with a lovely demeanor and ability to tackle an overwhelming projects like this with ease. She worked closely with our tenant and quickly got her on Medicaid and secured new housing in an assisted living. I cannot tell you how helpful Barbara was, we couldn’t have done it without her. Hiring Barbara was the best decision we have made, we highly recommend her and know she could handle any case you need help with.
