people are misdiagnosed every minute



We bridge the gap between real people and the changing health industry.

people are misdiagnosed every minute

We know healthcare is complicated.

Doctors and nurses don’t intend to make it difficult, but the system is already so complex, there isn’t enough time left for compassion or understanding.

Yet this is exactly when you need compassion and understanding, and we know that.

We are patient advocates: we focus exclusively on you and your needs, helping you to resolve concerns about the quality of your care, get the care you need, and ensure that your voice is heard.

Let us help you.

Need help with medical billing?

Addressing medical bills, by reducing payments or lowering rates, is our #1 service.


Pricing is estimated on a case-by-case basis.

In most cases, we can lower your medical bills.  We would ask for a percentage of the amount you saved, never exceeding the original costs.

Meet Gwendolyn B. Klein, Founder and Owner of Values Based Patient Advocates

For Gwendolyn, patient advocacy is not merely a business, it is a way of life. She lost both parents to cancer soon after graduating college, and takes care of her son, Matthew, who suffers from a bone disease known as Monostatic Fibrous Dysplasia. When she first began her long encounter with the healthcare system, it was a matter of blind groping to find the answers. As she learned more, she determined that no one else should have to endure the same hardship. And so Values Based Patient Advocates was born.
