“I have been working in healthcare since 1985. Private patient advocacy is definitely a need.”
Karen, Madison WI
“Debby helped me immensely during a very stressful time. She is calming and kind, but also extremely effective and responsive. It was so nice to have help from someone I could rely on who knows the local healthcare and hospital systems, Medicare, etc.”
Jessica, Madison WI
“Thank you so much, Debby, you were wonderful to work with. You gave us great advice in regard to Mom’s care, and you gave us the confidence to deal with some difficult situations.”

My husband passed after a short bout of aggressive cancer. The amount of paperwork I had to complete after his death was staggering, but I got through it all.
I decided to update my estate documents and realized that I had no one who I could trust to act as my Power of Attorney for Healthcare. I have no children and my one remaining sibling lives far away and is elderly. I did not want to name a friend because my friends are just that – friends – and I did not want to involve any of them with the burden of my healthcare.
I contacted Debby Deutsch and I explained my situation to her. I asked if she could be my Power of Attorney for Healthcare and she said that she could. This was such a relief; I did not know what I was going to do until I talked to her.
I asked mu attorney what she through of this and she told me that she was impressed that I had searched for and found someone to help, and that this was a sound idea. My attorney then agreed to act as my secondary POA.
So after signing the contract with Debby and naming her as my POA, I am all set and ready to get on with the rest of my life. I am very grateful to have found someone to act as my POA and hope that this service continues to grow and that more people find the guidance and training to follow this path.
