Here are two recent testimonials. There are many more on Stephanie's website and LinkedIn:
Stephanie was the “go to” person. She helped us comprehend what challenges our mother faced; understood the questions to ask, maneuvered through the demands of Medicare, interfaced with our mother and the medical personnel, counseled the caregivers. She was unflappable: tough when necessary; tender when needed. Her communication skills are excellent. (Jeanne W., client’s daughter, located in Tucson, AZ)
My recommendation to anyone facing potential hospitalization is to arrange in advance for a patient advocate. Personally, I can recommend Stephanie without reservation. If you engage her services, she will make sure she understands your medical condition, medications and other vital information before you are hospitalized…. I would hesitate facing even “routine” hospitalization without Stephanie in my corner. (Terry C., Physician Located in Tucson, AZ)
