Need help?
FIND A PATIENT ADVOCATE
Sick of doctors telling you everything's normal, when you know it's not?
Tired of juggling multiple doctors, diagnoses, and meds?
Is a loved one overly-medicated due to too many doctors in the mix?
Overwhelmed by what medical insurance is telling you?
Feeling lost about what to do next?

WHAT IS A PATIENT ADVOCATE?

In a nutshell, we guide you through the health care system,
pushing through administrative or insurance roadblocks;
we translate confusing medical jargon into plain talk,
we help you to juggle multiple doctors, multiple diagnoses, and multiple prescriptions.
And we help you to get back on your feet.

WHY BODYGUARD PATIENT ADVOCATES?

We're medical professionals. Every one of our patient advocates is an RN with years of experience working with patients. We understand treatment options, and we understand the medical system. We know how easy it is for a patient to "slip through the cracks", and we're doing something about it.

Bottom line, we love what we do, and we're thrilled to be able to facilitate communication to see that you get the high quality, compassionate care you deserve.

Kathy has a true passion for guiding people in the sometimes difficult process of helping others heal. She was such a blessing with my son's medical condition and helped me to understand the right questions to ask and educate me on what should be happening. I appreciate her advice and tips which were helpful going back and forth to the doctor! Highly recommend her as your advocate!

I ask a lot of questions and seek to understand. If I thought something should be done differently, I wanted to talk about it and understand. Kathy never took offense at this but would seek to understand my concerns. She patiently worked with me to figure out what was the right thing to do – always a good listener and explainer.

Kathy has been a calming presence and a knowledgeable voice for us many times, but in the last year we really came to know the benefit of having a patient advocate when at 58 my husband had a "widowmaker" heart attack that only 6-7% of people survive followed by an immediate quadruple bypass. Kathy was available at times when the doctor's office wasn't, she talked us off of many ledges, and helped us find answers for our many questions. Just knowing there was someone easy to talk to that we could reach out with medical expertise, who can answer questions about medicine, and that had his best interest at heart was so important and so calming during this tumultuous time of our lives. Thank you for helping us get through this safely!

I met Katherine when my husband’s health was failing. She was there with us every step of the way. Helping us to get the care we needed and getting us help we didn’t even know was out there. My husband’s blood pressure would fall when he stood up and our doctor said there was nothing that could be done. Katherine got us to a doctor that knew how to help us. She helped us to understand what the doctors were saying. She asked questions we didn’t even know to ask. She was with me until he passed and was a great comfort to me.
