Save your sanity, time & money!

You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.

You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?

A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.

I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.

I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.

Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.

Making the Case for Case Managers


6/7 Tamuz, 5775

I'm sharing an important FYI with you. I just posted it to one of my facebook pages.

THIS is why patients need case managers, advocates, friends & relatives speaking up for them! ‪#‎malpractice‬…/when-doctors-dont-talk-to…/…

Poor communication between doctors and patients is discussed relatively frequently. But what about confusion between the teams of doctors who share patients in the hospital?

Please read pages 42-47 (Lessons for Caregivers) of  EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge and photocopy the content. Hand out copies to members of your medical team and the supervisors of the medical sites treating you or someone important to you.

Buy the E-book or print edition of EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge. Use it to protect yourself and people important to you.

Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity. Face Your Future with Optimism.

Fend off problems with pro-active behavior.
