Patient Advocacy in Manhattan, Brooklyn and all of New York City
A relatively new profession, patient advocacy involves a liaison between a patient and his or her health care providers. The purpose of a patient advocate is to maintain a high quality of health care for a patient. In an age when medical malpractice lawsuits are on the rise and increasing numbers of patients are concerned about the level of care they are receiving, having an advocate can make a big difference not only in the treatment of the patient but also in his or her peace of mind. At Melnik Law Group, PLLC, we provide patient advocacy services to clients throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and all five boroughs in New York City.
With Attorney Melnik to act as your patient advocate, you have the opportunity to ensure you are receiving the level of care you deserve. Because our team of professionals also includes CPAs and attorneys with experience in Medicaid,
long term care and
disability or retirement benefits, you will also have the support of professionals who can advise you on other aspects of your health care. We are experienced in handling patient advocacy for elderly and retired patients and residents in
nursing homes and assisted living facilities in particular. This focused experience can make all the difference in providing high-quality legal assistance and financial planning.
What Does a Patient Advocate Do?
A patient advocate plays an important role in the optimal delivery of medical care. Patients who are severely ill or disabled are unable to stand up for themselves. Even if they have family members or friends looking out for their wellbeing, the average person may be unaware of the particular rights that a patient has in regard to his or her care. A patient advocate will know what issues to address and will understand the legal matters that relate to health care in order to help the patient as much as possible.
