Do your patients need more support than you have time to provide?

Are you frustrated that you don't have enough time to support and educate your patients more closely on healthy habits and behavior change?

Are your patients frustrated because they need more hand-holding and accountability than you have time to give?

As a doctor, your time is a premium. In your patient encounters, you may only have time to make recommendations and outline a plan - but some of your patients need close support and assistance in actually implementing that plan.

That's exactly where I come in!

As a health coach my job is to coach people through the lifestyle changes needed to lose weight, quit smoking, implement an exercise regime, improve their sleep, manage stress or improve other health conditions.

I can help your patients ensure they understand the care plan you created for them. I work closely with them to implement the complex lifestyle changes that are often required to make significant improvement in their health.

I can help your patients achieve their health goals.


Why would you want to refer your patients to a health coach? 

  • Improved health outcomes for your patients.
  • You can rest assured that your recommendations are being communicated in a way that your patients can understand and adhere to.
  • You'll be empowering your patients to improve their own health through lifestyle change.
  • Increase your available time and satisfaction, knowing that the education and coaching component of your patient's wellness strategy has been taken care of.
  • You can outsource the time-consuming tasks of patient support, motivation and education increase your own revenue potential by freeing up your available time for more visits.


Research is beginning to show that patient outcomes improve with health coaching

In fact the American Medical Association has this to say:

"Health coaching is a team-based approach that helps patients gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to become active participants in their care. The old saying, "Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime," demonstrates the difference between rescuing a patient and coaching a patient. Patients with chronic conditions need to learn how to fish. Health coaching can be supplemented with health literacy strategies and effective communication techniques, such as ask-tell-ask, each-back and/or action planning to ensure patient comprehension of their care plans and help them achieve their goals."
