Patient Advocates

"When my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, I truly recognized the importance of having a primary care provider and the purpose of being seen once a year rather than just when we are sick. If I can encourage anyone to get established with a primary care provider, I will." - Natalia S., Patient Advocate
Natalia, a patient advocate with HSHS Medical Group, shares why helping patients find a primary care provider is important to her: "When I first heard the full job description of my current role as a patient advocate, I knew it was right where I was supposed to be. During the same timeframe my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Unfortunately, if he had taken time for regular checkups with a primary care provider, he would have received this diagnosis sooner. It wasn’t until this point that I truly recognized the importance of having a primary care provider and the purpose of being seen once a year rather than just when we are sick. Now, if I can encourage anyone to get established with a primary care provider and be seen at least once a year for preventative care, I will."

Kim, also a patient advocate, is passionate about connecting patients with a primary care provider.  She says, "I think it’s important to have a primary care provider. It’s nice to know that one provider will be caring for you, and you can forge a relationship with the office staff. This provider will know your personal and family health history."
