NICE TO MEET YOU

I'm Gabby. I spent my career teaching doctors how to talk - and listen - to patients & now I'm teaching patients how to talk to doctors.

Blue Waiting Room

"My goal is to equip individuals with the necessary skills and confidence to navigate medical visits effectively, alleviating anxiety and improving communication with healthcare providers to enhance the overall experience of seeking medical care".

A PIVOTAL MOMENT...

Did you know fake patients, hired actors and actresses are used as a way to train doctors in how to talk to patients? There are best practices and endless resources for providers (doctor's, nurses, PTs, you name it there are resources) on how to collect information from a patient, ask the right questions, say the right things, all while showing compassion and care. Doctor's are trained on the model of patient centered care, which is training to include the patients voice in the medical visit and in decisions made about their health. I spent 8 years training future healthcare providers on this model until finally a lightbulb went off when I thought "We are constantly training healthcare providers how to talk to patients, because it is expected that patients voices are heard during the visit, yet, it is not the norm for patients to be trained on what that voice should be." It was at that point that my research and work began to train patients. I have studied and created a proven method to teach patients how to use their voice, how to talk so doctors will listen. It is simple, fun and brings the healthcare visit back to basics.

What I do

Educate and consult

for individuals and organizations

 

Patient communication consulting provides personal support for patients, aiming at improving communication in consultation with a medical specialist. Consultations address patients' communication barriers and provide guidance, clear language and confidence building.
