My father was recently in the hospital and we were having a hard time with the insurance company, they had a play book that they were following to steam roll us in to doing what they wanted. They would use medical terminology that we did not understand and would fast talk us to try and paint us in to a corner and to agree to things we did not understand. Bringing Dr. Hume on board as an advocate was probably one of the best decisions we have ever made. She was able to understand what they were saying, and she slowed down the conversation, so we could make better more informed decisions. Dr. Hume really cared about putting us first and getting my dad the care, he really needed.

Dr. Sheila has been my medical advocate for several months now, and she has helped me so much in getting information on clinics for treatment, helping me get my records, and speaking to doctors and program directors that I could not reach on my own. She is kind and knowledgeable, and I am so grateful that she has been, and continues to help me. Even though I am not in the Wilmington area, she took my case and we keep things going through text and email. Thank you Dr. Sheila!
