Many men and women are able to take good health for granted. However, for everyone, there will come a time that they are faced with an urgent health problem at some point in their lifetime. As people occasionally become ill, the healthcare system seems to have the right tools to make them well again. However, as we age, everything changes as to the impact these cumulative ailments have on our bodies. Patients often find themselves at the mercy of a healthcare system that seems to be impersonal, overly complicated, disjointed, and difficult to navigate. Many times the patient feels their life is suddenly unimportant and that they are at the mercy of the system.
Most often the patient is not given explanation, teaching, or opportunity for input into their treatment decisions. The fear of the unknown can immobilize a patient into a downward spiral of taking too many medications, receiving unnecessary medical procedures, and psychological distress. It is this very defining moment that pushes the patient to take charge of their health and become an educated consumer of healthcare services by maintaining an active role in developing their plan of care.
This is the basis for the formation of MargaretCare, PLLC. We are committed to empowering you to make well informed healthcare decisions, minimize pharmaceutical intervention, and offer you real answers and a compassionate approach to the health problems that concern you. We offer the sum total of what we have learned in over 10 years of providing healthcare and listening to our patients--a great legacy of our collective wisdom as women, men, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians.
Today through our website, community education programs, clinical practice and publications we want to launch a movement within our community that will shift the way healthcare and diabetes management is being approached today.
We ask our new patients, What is your intention in working with MargaretCare, PLLC? We need you to commit to keeping that intention clearly in your mind. Then let US get to work and make YOU feel the way YOU want to feel. That is our commitment to you!
