United States Medical Care Advice and Advocacy Services

doctor smiling to a nurse in united statesWelcome. I’m Stacey Batista, MD, a patient advocate specializing in compassionate health advocacy and management for people with complex or unexpected medical diagnoses.

When a healthcare crisis strikes, a personal advocate to collaborate with and oversee the process can reduce stress, improve your overall experience and outcome, and put you on the path to better health.

Our healthcare system is complicated and impersonal. As such, it’s easy to feel reduced to a diagnosis, a disease, a body part, a problem.

I will work closely with you, your doctor(s) and your family as you navigate your way through the medical maze of an unexpected diagnosis, long-term illness, end of life care, or other challenging medical concerns.

Contact me today with any questions about my practice or to set up a complimentary consultation

“I am so grateful we found Stacey. Our daughter lives with a complicated and uncommon health concern for which there are no easy or obvious fixes. Thanks to Stacey’s national search and coordination of evaluations by accomplished professionals, we are able to tell ourselves we have done all we can to evaluate the possibilities. Though we cannot control the results, Stacey put us in control of the process, and offered compassionate and clear-eyed counsel along the way.”

W.C., Culloden WV

My goal is for you to feel empowered, informed, and in control of your medical care and overall health.

I welcome new clients. Please contact me directly with any questions about my practice or your concerns, or to set up a consultation.

    What Makes Sirona Health Advocates Different?

    I am Stacey Batista, MD. I am a physician, daughter, and mother who has experienced first hand the challenges which are part and parcel of living with a life threatening health problem, because I cared for my elderly parents while raising two young children. I understand how short on time many folks are and the ways that a medical issue can cause havoc with one’s lifestyle.

    I enjoy getting to know new patients. Each one comes with their unique challenges and needs regarding their health condition, and learning details of their fears helps me in creating a customized action plan. We will get started with a complimentary phone call so we can introduce ourselves and you can let me know more info on how I can help you. We’ll look at how I work with clients and I’ll develop a plan for health advocacy based around what we’ve talked about so that we can act appropriately over time.

    As your United States healthcare patient advocate I will be able to go with you to doctors appointments, make certain your health values are being represented fairly and visit you when you’re in hospital. I support patients and their loved ones to deal with a range of health worries including things like an unpleasant medical diagnosis, end of life care solutions and long term illnesses.

    I attained my certificate in Healthcare Advocacy from Healthcare Liaison in 2018. I also graduated from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, where I did my Medicine/Surgery internship. I am a member of a few professional health advocacy bodies including the Alliance of Professional Health Advocates, the Massachusetts Society of Serious Illness and the National Association of Healthcare Advocacy.

    I bring compassion and humanization to your health related issue. And don’t have to be a resident in the United States district to use my healthcare advocate service because I additionally assist medical patients across the States. Regardless of whether you must make decisions for a dementia patient , you need somebody to help deal with a child’s health problem or you happen to be facing your own health problems, I am right here to guarantee that you don’t face it alone.

    About the United States

    At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2), the United States is the world’s third or fourth largest country by total area and is slightly smaller than the entire continent of Europe’s 3.9 million square miles. Located in North America, the country is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Along the northern border is Canada and the southern border is Mexico. There are 50 states and the District of Columbia. The United States contains a highly diverse population. Unlike a country such as China that largely incorporated indigenous peoples, the United States has a diversity that to a great degree has come from an immense and sustained global immigration. The capital is Washington, D.C. The largest city in the country is New York City. The national language is English, although there is no official language at the federal level. The U.S. is the world’s largest economy by nominal GDP and the world’s second-largest economy by PPP. It is also the third most populated country in the world after China and India.
