We have found that many people who are dealing with a serious illness, or caring for a loved one during a health crisis, can feel overwhelmed by our complex and fragmented health care system.
What many people need is a health advocate. Our Medical Director, Dr. Paul Abramson, has the training, experience, communication skills, and compassion to advocate for you in a time of need, in coordination with our network of connections in the medical system. We are ready to help.
For our own patients, we can provide a wide range of health advocacy and care coordination services, seamlessly integrated with their medical care.
For patients not a part of our practice, we can act as advocate consultants on their behalf, and help them communicate with the other doctors and care providers involved in their care. This can be done locally in San Francisco or remotely via phone, e-mail, mail, fax, and video conferencing.
Some areas where our advocacy can help:
- Hospitalization and care transitions
- Elder care and end of life issues
- Medical consultation and care coordination
- Housecalls and on-site services
- Research and educational services
- Privacy issues
We can be your independent and expert advocate during a time of need. Call us any time for more information on how we may be of help: (415) 963-4431.
