I am a pediatrician who was blessed to be a caregiver for my dad from 2010-2013. Experiencing the healthcare system from the other side of the stethoscope was both frustrating and life-changing. I found that my medical knowledge, expertise, and title often allowed me to advocate more effectively for my dad. While that was great for my family, I often left medical encounters thinking about the millions of patients who don't have a "medical person" in the family. I took a leap of faith and left my FT job in 2017 to launch a health advocacy company dedicated to helping patients and their family caregivers navigate the complicated healthcare system.
Dr. Rochester provides guidance for consumers and caregivers who are trying to navigate the healthcare system, the insurance morass and more. She explains these matters in a simple easy to follow discussion and is passionate about patient care and their loved ones as well. We direct our clients to her site as insurance brokers. Education is key — Marcia
