NAVIGATING THE REST OF YOUR LIFE ... I have over 30 years of experience as a Professional Patient Advocate, specializing in finding an accurate diagnosis and alternative solutions to life changing events. I am a nationally recognized health policy expert, writer, blogger and speaker. I act as Liaison to Family, Doctors & Professionals I frequently manage Hospital, Respite, Emergency & Home Stays, specializing in hard to manage discharge planning. I coordinate money management, handle bills of all kinds & insurance coverage issues, including those for disability, veterans benefits and Medicaid.

Back in 1993, I started the first physician owned HMO in the NYC metro area, which gave me insight into every aspect of the health delivery and financing system. Since then, I have completed the application process for many start-ups including home care agencies and out patient surgical facilities.

I use the same approach to help people who are entering the field or expanding their business as Patient Advocates. With me as your mentor, we will explore your mission and goals. You will learn how to define your unique niche, price your services, reach your target market and build your team. Mentorees in the NYC metro area are welcome to join me at professional organization meetings and to shadow me through out my day as a successful Private Professional Patient Advocate.

I am in the process of starting my business as a Patient Advocate. Caryn's support and education is invaluable. She is inviting to speak with and her knowledge of how to begin was what I needed to feel comfortable in starting my path to success. Thank you again Caryn!

Caryn graciously spent one hour talking to me about the possibilities of working in the field of patient advocacy. I am exploring options in this career. With her vast knowledge she was able to discuss many topics with a great deal of expertise. I came away with many new ideas and possibilities to explore. Whether as a mentor or a patient advocate for individuals, I believe Caryn has a wealth of information to offer.

Caryn Issacs has been an incredible "MENTOR" for me. She has been a positive force in assisting me with my present business by applying her 25 years of professional experience to my start-up consulting service. Her professional support and creativity has helped me in gaining the momentum for the consulting to take flight. Patient,supportive and well established. I highly recommend Caryn Issacs. I submit that Caryn Issacs should receive 5 Stars being the best.
