If you’ve found my website, chances are you or someone you care about is facing a healthcare situation. I know it can be shocking, devastating, and distressing. I’ve spent my life working in the medical field, and have built my business around helping others work their way through one of the scariest and most challenging times of their lives.
I founded Guided Patient Services in 2014 to serve the Columbus, Ohio area’s need for private patient health advocacy and navigation. As a physician, I saw families in the hospital who were overwhelmed, confused and uncertain of the next steps. Through Guided Patient Services, I provide clients and their families with medical interpretation, direction, and support.
I firmly believe that peace of mind and empowerment is achieved through a greater understanding of one’s own healthcare. Patients need a trusted, knowledgeable counselor who can translate the medical jargon, and help them process the large volumes of health information often thrown at them in a short period of time.
I have had the honor of advocating for young people struggling with a complicated diagnosis. I’ve helped seniors who need coordination of care. I’ve assisted out-of-town families, who as much as they want to, can’t make it to their loved one’s doctor’s appointments, hospitalizations or procedures. I replace worry, confusion and crisis with personalized assistance, guidance and assurance.
My focus is to ensure my clients fully comprehend their medical situation, so they can make the best choices for their own health and well-being.
