Got a Question?

Help me help you!

 

I’m contacted almost daily by patients with all kinds of problems and hurdles put in front of them by the healthcare system.  I try to help as many as I can, but so often those same people make it so hard to do!

Since I do this as a volunteer, I ask that you follow my guidelines so I can help you.

Here are some do’s and don’ts for contacting me with questions.

DO:

Send an email that is short, clear and concise.  Limit its length to no more than 2-3 paragraphs.  See at right for my email address.

Be sure to ask a question.  Sometimes I receive emails that ramble on and on, and in the end there’s no request or question.  I have no idea what the requestor wants me to do or reply.

Have realistic expectations. I will try my best for you, but if you have an expectation that is unrealistic, you will be disappointed, no matter what.

Say thank you if my reply helps you!  I am always amazed at how many people never even let me know they have even received my reply. You’ve asked me for something. I owe you nothing. I want to help, and to the extent I can, I will.  I only ask you to use the manners your mama taught you.

DON’T:

Ramble.  Seriously.  I can’t possibly answer everyone if there is too much there and if it’s a mile long in all one paragraph, it makes it very difficult to read.  (Remember, short, clear and concise.)

Send attachments.  I won’t open them.  It’s a sure way to invite a bug or virus to add itself to my computer.  Instead put your explanation and question into two or three paragraphs in an email.

… Ask me to phone you.  I don’t do phone calls to consult with patients.  There just aren’t enough hours in the day.

Ask or expect medical advice. I’m not a medical professional.  I can often help with almost any other aspect of healthcare that isn’t actual medical information or advice.

Fair enough?  I hope so. I’ll look forward to hearing from you.
