Recently I went thru the rocky road of having to navigate the process of tests, Doctor evaluations, more tests, a biopsy, more Doctor evaluations, more scans...
It is extremely difficult as the patient and or close family to understand what the test results and lab reports really say and to ask all the appropriate questions or even hear the Doctors explanations correctly. There is a fear factor for the patient and the family that is akin to being in shock.
Barbara Wogh, RN attended the appointments with a thoughtful presence, immaculate note taking and provided written reports of the dialogue the Doctors had with me. She also provided me with reputable printed information on the matter at hand. I know that I was able to manage thru the initial phases as well as I did because Barbara was resolute with her positive attitude and professional approach. Her guidance was immeasurable. Aside from the appointments she attended with me, Barbara was consistent in keeping in touch with me thru phone calls and emails, which provided a great deal of comfort to me.
It was my best decision to have Barbara help and stand by me in navigating the often confusing initial process of this discovery. She provided a reliable, capable and resolute approach to get me through it all. I felt more secure. Barbara’s written reports on the Doctors comments were thorough and appropriately translated to me and my family.
I would recommend her highly as a Patient Advocate for you and your dearest of family.
