Kayoko is incredible! She helped me through a very dark time in life. Typically, I am the first to advocate for others and myself. However, by the time I found Kayoko I was unable to speak for myself.

I was told by many other patient advocates that due to the complex nature and rarity of my condition they could not help me.

Kayoko was honest and upfront with the fact that she did not have experience with my condition.

However, she would research and get caught up to speed on my condition. She quickly became very knowledgeable about my condition.

Kayoko, came with me to all critical doctors appointments. She was able to communicate with precision to the providers treating my condition. Thus resulting in the proper care and outcomes needed.

She was able to review all medical notes to ensure they were correct and properly documented. Saving money by ensuring insurance paid out in full.

To top it all off, during a hospital stay there were some very alarming circumstances. Kayoko dropped everything with only a couple hours notice and drove over an hour to the facility.

She spoke with the hospital admin on staff and everything was promptly sorted out and resolved. This act of kindness, not only eliminated the suffering I was experiencing in that moment but allowed me to receive the proper acuity of care needed for the remainder of my inpatient stay.

I am not sure I could have made it through such a dark time without Kayoko. Her kindness, compassion and medical knowledge were priceless at such a horrible time.

Ky is an awesome nurse and advocate. With a long list of illnesses, my caregiver and I struggled so much managing my health care before meeting her. Once she started working with me, I felt all my worries were lifted – she checked all my medications, made sure I take them correctly, my blood pressure under control, and so on. She also communicates well with my multiple doctors and makes sure their plans are indeed best for me. Above all, she really cares about my whole health and is great at encouraging me to take right action for my health. I used to spend most of my day sleeping but I now exercise daily- what a big difference she made!

I’ve been struggling multiple chronic illnesses, including Lyme and Babesiosis that frequently lead to excruciating pain, insomnia, GI and neurological issue. But I was lucky enough to meet Ky who really helped me with her knowledge, warmth and insights. As a patient advocate, she went above and beyond to properly educate and guide me to the best possible path. She is incredibly smart and I know for a fact that she will do great things in healthcare. I highly recommend Ky’s services to everyone.
