Client Education, Advice on Managing Medical Situations and Attendance at Doctors’ Appointments
Frequently the medical details are overwhelming for clients, even for those who are genuinely interested and actively reading the medical literature. It seemed only natural that we help clear up your confusion about your medical conditions and give you a sense of control and empowerment over your health. We find that ensuring that you actually understand your disease and treatment options helps bridge the power differential between doctor and patient.
Throughout the second opinion process we answer your questions, provide articles from reliable sources and teach you how to advocate for yourself. You are given the tools necessary to organize your medical information and keep track of your diagnostic tests so that they are up to date. We also attend key doctors’ appointments and advocate on your behalf. These efforts help ensure that you receive the highest quality of care, such that you feel heard and optimal medical decisions are made.
