Ratings

When my mother had a serious and complicated medical crisis, Amanda was invaluable in assisting us to navigate the medical system, and I cannot imagine what we would have done without her help and expertise.

My mother and I live 700 miles apart. While my mother was hospitalized, Amanda facilitated communication with my mother’s medical team, and researched and explained medical recommendations to both of us. She also offered reassurance, comfort, knowledge and guidance in the face of uncertainty. After discharge, Amanda provided detail about what occurred during my mother’s medical appointments via case notes posted on a secure website. In these clear and comprehensive notes, she wrote even more detail than what was written in the doctor’s note from the visit. Although I could not be there, I knew exactly what occurred, and understood the implications of the medical decisions my mother needed to make.

When my mother began having concerning symptoms, Amanda instructed her to go to the Emergency Room, met her there, and made sure that the ER staff focused on the most pertinent information from my mother’s medical history. After surgery, Amanda helped arrange an overnight stay even though the surgeon initially wanted to discharge her home.

Since I am not able to see my mother in person, Amanda has been my “eyes on the ground,” providing me with information about my mother’s appearance and state of mind, and reassurance about her ability to function in the community.

So many people would benefit from a Health Advocate. Amanda provides unsurpassed care, knowledge, compassion, and experience and I would highly recommend her services.
