Contact: Rajan, Dr. Vik
Business Description: Houston Patient Advocacy is run by Dr. Vik Rajan, the company's president and founder. He is a board certified nephrologist, internist, and pediatrician, who got involved with patient advocacy during his medical training when his mother experienced numerous health problems and ultimately needed him to advocate for her care during the last eight years of her life. Upon finishing medical training, having noticed the lack of medically trained patient advocates in the Greater Houston (TX) and surrounding areas, Dr. Rajan decided to form in 2010 this patient advocacy for patients and families in this region so that they may be more educated and empowered in their medical care. It's like having a doctor in the family as your personal medical guide. Services are provided in person in the Greater Houston Area and remotely by phone/email anywhere else in Texas and Connecticut. Services include medical advocacy/navigation assistance as well as assistance with medical billing/insurance claim difficulties. For more information about the company, services provided, pricing, etc., please visit www.houstonpatientadvocacy.com. Initial 30-minute office or phone consultation is FREE. Se habla español.
