Annette Ticoras, MD
City, State, or Location

Columbus, Ohio and surrounding area. Remote advocacy services available nationwide.

I started Guided Patient Services (GPS) in 2014 in response to a need that was not being met. As a physician, I saw families in the hospital who were overwhelmed, confused and uncertain of the next steps.

Through GPS, I provide clients and their families with medical interpretation, guidance, and support. With a patient advocate by your side, you never have to feel alone. We are able to provide remote advocacy services to clients during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We are:

Your translator. We understand medical language, and can explain it in a way you can understand, as many times as you need us to.

Your coordinator. We schedule your appointments, make sure you are prepared, and accompany you there.

Your liaison. We provide coordination of care when multiple health care providers are involved, or in the case of a surgery or hospitalization.

Your representative. We attend medical team conferences to enhance your understanding and to update family members.

If you do find yourself with healthcare decisions to make and you’re feeling overwhelmed or confused, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Dr. Ticoras helped us advocate for our son. Sadly, sometimes it takes a doctor talking to a doctor to get things done. It blew me away that the Cleveland Clinic didn’t take peak and trough levels on a medication until Dr. Ticoras recommended it. She’s caring, compassionate, organized, and thorough. Highly recommended.

Timely and professional medical consultation

Guided Patient Services (GPS) responded immediately in my moment of emotional crisis. As a recently appointed guardian for my 75 year-old sister stricken by a hemorrhagic stroke, I was physically removed by considerable distance in providing for her care. Annette Ticoras, MD at GPS agreed to consult with me and insure that my sister’s care was paramount. Through Dr Annette Ticoras’s guidance, I was ultimately able to relocate my sister and insure her a newer, superior level of care. Dr Ticoras and I had consistent patient care conferences where she interceded on my behalf with medical and healthcare professionals to insure accountability. We reviewed medical records and considered alternative care. We successfully moved from strategic initiatives to tactical implementation. I am proud to say that with Dr Ticoras’s professional guidance my sister is now receiving an amazing level of care.

Annette Ticoras, MD is a consummate professional based on her integrity, honesty, tenacity, and compassion. She is a respected medical leader who combines a sensitivity for clients with a deep level of experience in working in the medical community. Dr. Annette Ticoras is a highly skilled medical professional who brings a wealth of personal experience to her clients. She is thoughtful and creative. Dr Ticoras is an empathetic listener with excellent problem-solving skills.

Aligning with Dr. Annette Ticoras at Guided Patient Services (GPS) is one of the smartest healthcare decisions I made as my sister’s guardian.
