What people are saying...
"Melissa Hakim, my medical navigator, has helped me in many ways. She helped me get a second opinion from Sloan Kettering about getting major surgery. Thanks to her medical knowledge and guidance, I did not have unnecessary surgery in 2018. Melissa answered my questions, talked to my primary care doctor, and she went to some medical appointments with me. For example, she attended an IVF filter consultation and a colorectal appointment with me. She recommended a competent ophthalmologist who screened me for glaucoma. Melissa did medical research for me, recommended a non-inflammatory diet with lots of vegetables and turmeric. She encouraged me to do Silver Sneakers- an exercise program covered by Medicare. Melissa continues to be my medical advocate who has reduced my worries from medical stress. Thanks to her my health has improved."
"If you find yourself in a similar situation as I was in, where I needed medical attention, my social network was not what it used to be, and needed extra help/support to take care of me, just know Melissa is a phone call/email away. She helped me find the right Doctor, made phone calls, appointments and supported me throughout the entire process. Melissa was incredibly helpful and considerate, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!"
"When my wife and I took a 10 day vacation out of the country, so far from my parents. we were so relieved to have Dr. Hakim (or Melissa) to be our contact and their advocate. Her professional education and knowledge as an MD combined with the services her company provides and then adding the personal touch of her sincere interest in knowing and caring for my parents is so more valuable to peace of mind than words can describe."
"Melissa is a wonderful healthcare advocate. Her kind, knowledgeable, engaging manner supports the patient, family and caregivers. We are blessed to have her on our team, especially when we are out of town."
"Dr. Melissa Hakim is one of the kindest people I have ever met. I came to her about a year ago with a myriad of seemingly random symptoms that have been going on for five years now. Within months I got more answers from my doctors then I had in years with the help of Melissa advocating for me.
She is certainly someone that you want in your corner. She really takes the time to get to know her clients, no matter how difficult their case may be. Trust me I am NOT an easy patient. She is excellent at thinking outside of the box and problem-solving. She will hold you accountable for your health in the best way possible. Melissa will always go the extra mile for you both figuratively and literally. She is able to balance being incredibly empathetic as well as extremely knowledgeable at the same time. For anyone struggling with their health I highly recommend Melissa."
