Are you an average person baffled by what the doctors or nurses just told you? Don’t know what to do, where to go or even what questions to ask? Want another opinion but don’t know the community resources?

The medical system can be a complicated, complex and scary world.  Let me help you sort through the information and explain it in a manner that is easily understandable.  Then I can assist you in looking at your options and connecting you with the appropriate resources in the community which may even mean attending appointments with you if desired.

Having been a nurse for 44 years and having lived in the Asheville area since 2001, working in a variety of medical and psychiatric settings, both institutional and in the community, I have access to a wide range of resources that could help you.  If I don’t have an immediate answer, I know how to find the desired information.

Also, if you are in a quandary with Social Security Disability, insurance, such as Medicare,  Medicaid, or private insurance, I may be able to help as well.  For example, Medicare Part D requires that every year between October and December 7, people have to re-certify, which puts many seniors on edge.  There is a program that allows providers such as myself to access the system and compare each of >15 plans, matching your medications to what is covered by each plan, choosing the best one for you.
