Carol Cannizzo, Managing Director

I am passionate about the healthcare field and ensuring that a patient’s well-being is at the heart of all decisions. As a registered nurse for over 25 years, I have extensive experience in multiple hospital and home care environments.  The healthcare industry is complicated and confusing, and I can help you navigate its complexities.

As the spouse of a Marine Corps Officer, and a lifelong registered nurse, I know what it takes to be loyal and committed, and that is what I pledge to all of my clients.  I believe patients - and the family members that support them, need a professional healthcare advocate when challenged by the healthcare system.  If you think you’re in need of our services, please call us today to see how we can help you.

Registered Nurse Advocates

RN Advocates are registered nurses who have multiple years of clinical experience. They have received specialized training from IKOR in medical advocacy and life care management. Our RN Advocates manage a small number of client cases and help our clients navigate the complex and fragmented health care system. From making sense of medical information to attending doctor’s appointments, determining cognitive abilities and coordinating care between specialists, our RN Advocates ensure our client's medical needs are being met and they are receiving the best care possible.

Personal Needs Coordinators

Personal Needs Coordinators (PNCs) coordinate the delivery of services that enable an individual to live a fulfilled and independent life. Our PNCs can aid in finding and vetting vendors for home care, or help arrange for yard care or home maintenance for clients who live at home. Our PNCs also provide simple bill pay services for the client and can be instrumental in mitigating the risk of financial exploitation.
