PHYSICIANS

Patients rely on physicians for so much, and in many cases, a physician’s time is limited.  Some patients may not accurately report health concerns or their health history.  After a visit with a physician, a patient may misinterpret key aspects of the physician’s orders or forget all, or most, of the care instructions.  A Scutta Advocacy Group Nurse Advocate or Physician Assistant Advocate will significantly increase the probability that a patient will follow a physician’s orders as intended.
