Defying Disaster Patient Advocates & Educators

We help bridge the disconnect between what the health care system provides and what patients need.

We:

  • Clarify diagnoses and treatment details  
  • Identify  experts for second and third opinions
  • Provide information about therapy options, risks and benefits
  • Provide background research about care providers, hospitals, diagnoses, drugs, therapies, and other topics
  • Identify top treatment centers for specific diagnoses
 The hardest struggle in medicine is the complexity, the extreme complexity of what is now required to take care of people …There are 13,6000 diagnoses, 6000 drugs and 4000 medical and surgical procedures.      Atul Gawandi, M.D.
