5 stars is just not enough for Dana Hutson. Dana has been a godsend to our family. In November, 2017 we lost my elderly father with Dementia. He was the victim of poor decision-making on the part of a consulting physician in the emergency room. A cascade of events resulting from that decision led to the acceleration of my father’s death within a 30 day period. My family has been struggling to bring closure to this situation. My mother and I met Dana during a presentation she gave at Lansdowne Woods a few months ago. The presentation described exactly what our experience was at the hospital with my father. We hired Dana to go back and research the entire 30 day hospital experience and assist us in understanding what happened. Dana spent numerous hours reviewing hundreds of pages of notes from four different hospitals. As suspected, my father was chemically sedated and failed to recover. My father was denied his rights which ended in death. My father’s experience is far too common across the country. Unfortunately, we didn’t meet Dana until after my father’s death. If we had Dana’s guidance, my father would still be living today. I highly recommend seeking Dana’s assistance in advocating and supporting you during any type of medical situation. We will forever be grateful to Dana for bringing closure to our family.

I found Dana on this site and working with her has been an absolute blessing for my family. She was able to quickly assess my mom's situation and immediately offer solutions that made a difference. Her knowledge and tireless legwork is a gamechanger for families trying to negotiate the healthcare system.

It’s difficult to express in words the importance of an advocate when faced with a life changing scenario like cancer. Dana was amazing providing incredible counsel and guidance that was critical in the early days of our diagnosis. I could not imagine going through this again without the caring, loving expertise that Dana Hutson brought to our family. She is an angel.
