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.

Update: Will I Get an Online Byline?


9 Adar 1, 5776

I've spent time enjoying time with friends and traveling a bit. And I've been contacted about pending employment once again, a possible slot as an online journalist aka radio show hostess. It was the result of having a journalism background accented with a health information management background.

The job interview was amusing. 

The station engineer called me to do an online job interview and in the middle of business-related remarks, caught me off-guard with a medically-related question. I gave him appropriate information within seconds and asked "What is all that clicking noise in the background?" 

He responded "You're wearing great headphones. I recorded your response as if you'd be on the air. You have poise, quick access to information and a soothing voice. Stand by. We're deciding if we'll give you your own medically related show, or have you report the news."

I'll keep you posted of progress. Until then, I wonder, "Will I get an online byline?"

Meanwhile, I'm preparing my remarks for the May health forum to which I've been invited as a speaker. You can learn more about my professional life at my Health Forum profile.

Here's a photo from that trip I took recently.
