Advocate's Rating


AnnMarie is a miracle worker. She accomplished complex coordination among several specialists within hours after we had spent months trying to accomplish with no success. In today’s health care delivery and health insurance environment, patient advocators are essential. If you’re going to court, you need a lawyer. If you’re going to a hospital, you need a professional patient advocator. Cost is not the issue. Care is.
