What can we do to help you?

We can offer navigation to individuals who have a difficult time getting or making appointments in the healthcare system.

We assist with:


  • Making your appointments

  • Calling with reminders for appointments

  • Make follow up phone calls after procedure to make sure there were no complications.

  • Call you with test results and discuss the results so you can understand them.

  • We place you in our recall system so we can call you in the future for a reminder you are due for another test


We can help you navigate the healthcare system.
