Testimonials are a common on most websites.They are easy to dismiss; the assumption being that most companies will only post the most positive reviews. That is not the case here.
We post testimonials for three distinct reasons.
First, we do believe testimonials are illustrative. What people say about a business or service is certainly representative of the quality of the service. That is important.
But in the case of patient advocacy, the secondary reason we post testimonials is because they are informative. In our experience, many people, particularly those who could benefit most from patient advocacy, have no idea the service exists or do not fully understand what we do. So rather than simply read what we say, we would encourage you to read what our clients have said about us. These testimonials, written by real people who we have helped through real crisis, are perhaps the best source of information when considering if an RN advocate is right for you.
Finally, our service is completely transparent. Patients are able to upload their experiences directly onto our website through the share your story link below. We want to hear from our clients. We want to know how we have helped or how we could do better. Our goal is simple. To ensure that every patient receives the best possible care every time.

Wonderful service! I had an acute back injury and had seen multiple doctors, struggling to figure out what the best treatment option would be. [My advocate] came in and helped me to navigate the health care system and prepare me for a very important doctor's visit to discuss a slightly higher risk healing option. She helped my compile a list of questions prior to the doctor visit, accompanied me to my appointment, and followed up with a written summary of what was discussed. It was so nice to have a person who understands the medical field right there with me.
[My advocate] was instrumental in saving my son’s life. Mental Health Care is incredibly challenging to navigate, to begin with, and there is still such a stigma of it not being taken seriously or as time-sensitive – you indeed are alone in the process. I had no advocate to guide me through the process and get my son the care he needed, not until I found her. Thank goodness I did, she was able to listen to my concerns, provide information quickly, guide, and support me in finding the help my son desperately needed. At one point, I was texting her from the hospital, and she gave me real-time answers and guidance, which I can say without a doubt is what saved my son’s life. I was not alone.
The whole experience was surreal. I felt as though I had been truly heard for the first time. These three women are unique in different ways. They each took something different from my word, yet they each collaborated and helped me as a single unit instinctively without words to one another. The four of us sat alone in a crowded coffee shop. Somehow, after one hour of speaking with them, two years of heaviness felt lighter on my shoulders. I felt lighter with tears in my eyes.
I really appreciated the support and guidance I received both for myself and my family. It put us all at ease to have an advocate in our corner.
Families & Patients
[My advocate] is both compassionate and detail oriented; the perfect mix for a nurse and an advocate! She quickly absorbed my background and goals for the medical history project and produced a meticulous timeline and other materials that have proved invaluable in establishing a new medical network in my home.

My nurse advocate has been invaluable to my husband and me in finding appropriate care and placement for my sister who is suffering from advanced Parkinson's Disease. She reviewed and commented on every suggested treatment option and referred us to appropriate professionals for further assistance.
