A Discussion with Patient Advocate Dr. Gerda Maissel

Updated: Oct 8, 2023

I was honored to be a guest on a recent episode of Dr. Farzana Chohan's Recognition Series where I discussed my role as a Patient Advocate. Here are a few snippets from the discussion. "I am a professional patient advocate. What I do is I help people with complicated medical problems navigate our healthcare maze." "Often, I am the troubleshooter. I help them know how to ask the doctors questions in a way the doctor can hear what the patient or family is trying to ask." "I'm never their doctor. I just use the clinical knowledge I have to either directly or through the client make some suggestions to help the doctor consider their options."

I invite you to listen to the full conversation here:
