From Dr. Schildcrout:

I'll give you the time and attention that your doctors can’t give you, and in so doing, give you the tools to get the most out of your appointments, conversations, and relationships with your doctors.

I am here for people who want help taking charge of their own or their loved one’s health. I will teach you, guide you, and coach you. I will help you communicate skillfully within the medical world. You will become knowledgeable, savvy, and tough as you become your own best advocate. You will understand your doctors better, so that you can maximize what you get out of your office visits, and you will understand how hospitals work, so that you can get safe, optimal treatment when hospitalized and after you leave the hospital. I will be at your side, either figuratively or literally, guiding you, stepping in when necessary to break through medical red tape, and communicating directly with doctors and other medical personnel when necessary or preferable.

I care, and I am here for you.
