Medical Advocacy: Professional Guidance from a Seasoned Practitioner

Put a Powerful Resource on Your Medical Team

Serious or acute illness can pose significant challenges for patients and their families. In times of crisis, it is easy to be overwhelmed by critical health decisions. And it is during these times that having an experienced ally with your best short- and long-term interests at heart is invaluable.

What you need is a Medical Advocate, someone who can help you navigate the overwhelming array of treatment protocols and options so you can make informed decisions. It should be someone on top of the latest medical breakthroughs—with expertise in alternative forms of treatment that may sometimes render surgery unnecessary. It should be someone unbiased who can help you understand the positive and negative effects of various procedures and drug regimens. Finally, it should be someone closely associated with leading physicians from whom to seek help.

In short, you need Dr. Vicki.

For over 20 years, Dr. Vicki has been a trusted, reliable source of information for her patients, working on their behalf to carefully research and determine the best medical protocols, the pros and cons of surgery and what to expect, as well as how to build and maintain physical strength throughout the treatment and recovery process. Her firsthand medical experience and knowledge of progressive medicine — together with her gentle, reassuring manner and strong communication skills — provide the expertise and peace of mind you need when facing major healthcare decisions.

Dr. Vicki’s Only Concern Is Your Wellbeing

Unlike traditional patient advocates, Dr. Vicki focuses exclusively on your medical care to evaluate the best forms of treatment, support and recovery. As a highly respected Holistic practitioner, she understands medical procedures with the depth that only a doctor can. And since she is completely independent with allegiances to no one except her patients, she has no ulterior motive other than your wellbeing. That alone is priceless.

How It Works

When you choose to engage Dr. Vicki as your Medical Advocate, she’ll determine (at no charge) if you are an appropriate candidate for advocacy. If you are, she’ll begin by conducting a basic Holistic exam in her office if you live locally or by phone/Skype if you live at a distance. During your initial session, she’ll review your medical history in depth and evaluate your current medical records. Together you’ll discuss your health objectives and concerns.

After your initial session, Dr. Vicki will research your condition and explore available treatment options, often consulting with several medical specialists in the process. In your secondary or follow-up session, she’ll discuss her findings in simple, easy-to-understand language, provide related reading materials and recommend next steps, which may include second opinions, physician referrals and possible courses of action. In addition, she’ll create a personalized, easy-to-follow action plan.

As Your Trusted Medical Advocate, Dr. Vicki Will:

  • Thoroughly research your condition & provide detailed, easy-to-understand explanations of the best treatment options
  • Recommend physicians for first & second opinions, diagnoses and/or treatment options 
  • Identify those specialists best suited to your unique health problem & situation
  • Make sure you fully understand your treatment options so you can make informed decisions
  • Provide lifestyle/nutritional counseling, supplements & safe, supportive Holistic care that complement your recovery
  • Be a source of support and guidance for both patient & family throughout the recovery process
  • Maintain patient privacy, treating all patient information as privileged & protected

As Dr. Vicki is a medical practitioner and not what is sometimes referred to as a “patient advocate,” she does not resolve disputes between patients and healthcare providers or get involved in labor disputes. She does not provide advice on health insurance, handle insurance claims or arrange for any kind of healthcare service. But she will make sure you get all the information you need to make the best possible decisions. And she’ll give you the confidence and peace of mind to move forward toward optimal health and wellbeing.
