Advocates: Guiding the way in the Medical Industry

Suzanne FiscelIa, PA-C, BCPA / August 19, 2016


Whether you want to be your own advocate, hire an advocate or become a professional advocate for others, one thing is certain – you can never be too careful when it comes to your healthcare.

We’ve all seen the books for better health, fitness, diet and exercise but this is not that. This is different.  We are talking about a system which treats millions of Americans every day and kills about 4000 a week in the process.

It’s overloaded, overworked and stretching too thin to hold the healthcare of Americans as we know it today. The guardrails aren’t strong enough to keep the checks and balances in place.

If the news showed a road in such disrepair that it killed 4000 travelers a week, the road would be down.  But we can’t do this with healthcare.  Too many people are needing it daily and the road stays open.

What’s the answer?  YOU.  Become the better driver. Know the warning signs, learn the techniques, secrets and rules of the healthcare road.

It’s easy enough to do.  You just need to learn some basics.  Rules that have been around for physicians, nurses, and physician assistants since the beginning of time.  Rules which will help you discern “Danger up ahead” or “Rough road ahead. Slow down.”

Advocate courses are like a GPS for medicine.  They put you and your provider in the driver’s seat.  They give you careful, accurate directions.  And, if you make a mistake – well, it just recalculates before disaster strikes.

I know exactly what it's like to feel like you just can't keep up. Working a full-time job, raising 3 children as a single mom, and taking care of her aging mother. But after feeling lost, overwhelmed, and guilty for spreading herself too thin, I saw all her patients and their caregivers going through the same thing. I learned how to put simple systems in place to keep my life free from distractions, find free time to do the things I wanted, and enjoy my family along the way. These simple step-by-step solutions have been shared with my patients, friends, and family. They too have found organization, confidence, peace, and freedom. Now we all live the life we love while caregiving! Come join us!
