Nicole Rochester, MD (Your GPS Doc)

Patient Leader

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.
