STRATEGIES THAT WORK


IF I CHOSE ADVOCACY, HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Contact me 

  • I will email you a list of the information I need from you

  • Fill out the information and email it back to me

  • We set up a date and time for a phone conference

  • Prior to the conference, I review all of your information

    • ​I make a list of questions to ask you

    • I may request copies of labs or results that are missing from the documentation

    • I will sketch out a potential strategy for getting you the best help

  • You call me at the appointed date and time

    • ​​A tiny bit of small talk, I'm going to get right to the point of the meeting

    • You tell me your story (summarized)

    • I ask you questions

    • We discuss your situation

    • I will make suggestions for you to take to your doctor or I will explain anything you don't understand

    • If appropriate or if you would prefer, we can set a time and date for a follow up

  • Within twenty four hours*, I will provide you with an email that summarizes your symptoms, test suggestions, follow up call date and time.  Attached you will find any documentation that was promised

  • *Payment is expected prior to or immediately following the phone conference via PayPal, without payment the summary email (in bullet point above) will not be sent.
