The Prepared Patient with Andrea J Miller, CEO of The Digital Patient

Nobody knows you better than you do, yet we are often the harshest with ourselves. Andrea J. Miller, CEO of The Digital Patient, shares her healing journey with us, including loving her body again, and the life she created after her health set-backs — a life of patient advocacy. Her own life experience drives and informs Andrea’s work. Like many people, she found herself tragically unprepared when faced with a series of personal health crises as a caregiver and as a patient. She now uses those experiences to guide companies, healthcare providers, and individuals as a consultant, speaker, advisor, and coach to improve others’ health and well-being journey.

In this episode she shares:

• How to prepare for the visit (questions etc.),
• Why it’s important to get a second or third opinion,
• The need to be a prepared patient if you have the time,
• Ways to keep self-care, self-worth, and self-compassion strong,
• The importance of a care/recovery plan and more…
