Beyond Patient LLC
I have over 20 yrs experience advocating for patients in oncology. I am a licensed registered radiation therapist in New York state. At the age of 13, I was diagnosed with leukemia. So, I learned early on about the imperfections of our health care system and also learned how to advocate for myself. I continued advocating for others throughout adulthood. After working for a majority of hospitals and private practices as a radiation therapist, I realized the amount of medical errors and injustices taking place in our current health care system. While we can all agree, everyone is entitled to proper affordable health care, and all caregivers should be working for the good of the patient, it is simply not always the case. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. That is an appalling statistic. My passion is to ensure all patients get the best health care possible, that they understand their choices and their treatment, that they feel genuinely cared for during any interaction with their health care providers. Let me take care of navigating the health care world. I offer coordination of care, bedside accompaniment, a second set of ears for appointments. I also hold a degree in child psychology and have experience advocating during the birthing process. Busy mothers can use an advocate whether you are the patient or the family member of the patient. I realize all clients are unique in their needs. If there is something you need that is not listed, please contact me and I'll see if I am able to meet your needs. I currently reside in Rochester, New York. But, I have experience advocating in different states. As a patient or the loved one of a patient, you have enough on your plate. Let me do the coordinating, recording, and navigating. My goal is to reduce the chances of medical errors, misunderstandings, or misdiagnosis. And, my ultimate goal is to teach you how to advocate for yourself!
