Trisha Torrey has been Every Patient’s Advocate since her misdiagnosis experience in 2004. Since then her work has focused on patients, their access to good and decent care, their experiences with the healthcare system, and their health and medical outcomes.

On the front lines of the medical / healthcare system, doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other medical providers are becoming increasingly squeezed by insurers, Medicare, and the government, and are expected every day to do more with less.
