Stephanie provided such excellent service to my family when we needed it most. My Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer which came as a shock to us, and the amount of coordination required for his care was overwhelming. Stephanie is extremely knowledgeable and comfortable with navigating the hospital and skilled nursing facility world. Stephanie diligently sought out information and advocated for our dad at every turn. Stephanie’s expertise made us feel we were better equipped at understanding my dad’s treatment, the resources available to us and ensuring there was oversight at all times. Stephanie seemed to be working around the clock to provide updates to us which brought us such peace of mind. I can’t recommend Stephanie enough.

We came across Stephanie at a time when we were overwhelmed and frustrated with dealing with the Kaiser system for my father who had been diagnosed with brain cancer. Half the battle in getting information regarding care decisions is persistent and assertive follow up but between my sister and mom, we were at our wits end trying to get answers or necessary actions. In steps Stephanie who knows her way around the system and can take all of that on for you. She is compassionate, patient, thoughtful, organized and has great experience and advice. We literally do not know how we would have made it through our experience dealing with my father’s care without Stephanie. I cannot recommend her enough.

If you need a professional to help guide you through a medical or health care event Stephanie is the person you should call first. I was preparing for heart surgery and realized I was focusing my limited energy on the preparation but had not considered my post-surgery care needs. I ‘d heard about health care advocates and their work but I had never needed the service. I knew now was the time. After talking with Stephanie she agreed to help me find a home care agency, make arrangements and all on a tight schedule. She went above and beyond and recognized other hospitalization and post-surgery needs that I hadn’t anticipated making the transition home easier. If you’re looking for a calm steady presence to help manage one time or ongoing health care needs don’t hesitate to contact Stephanie.

Thank you could never be enough to express our families strong and heartfelt gratitude for your support with our mother. When we engaged your services, it was for help with doctors’ visits and follow through. With your help we saw our mother had a strong advocate at every visit. Your meticulous notes after each visit, follow through with getting additional appts scheduled and attended was beyond anything we could have asked for. Every interaction with you was always professional, pleasant, and provided us with tremendous peace of mind. We had no way of knowing at our first visit you would help us through our mother’s end of life journey. Your care and concern helped us all feel she was getting the best possible care. As sad a time as we were experiencing, I came to look forward to your calls as a welcome reprieve from my heavy hearts. In addition to the knowledge, education and experience you bring to the situation you are an easy person to talk with. Having you help our family was the best decision we ever made. I can only hope others will find you and be able to experience the same. I will ALWAYS refer our friends in the Bay Area to you. There is no better advocate for anyone than you!
