One response to “Patient Advocate Foundation”

  1. Boston Chiropractor says :

    Thank you for this information. It is very difficult to find a patient advocate many times for patients in need. I am glad I found this resource. It can be very difficult when a patient has an illness and is trying to focus on getting well and then have to manage all the red tape of paperwork, insurance phone calls etc in the middle of it all. It can take so much time and if there is someone who knows how to navigate the system and can take some of the stress of then it is a blessing for them. Thank you again!
