Case Management

In Person or Tele-Teleconference

Currently we are expanding our case management services to include professional in-person or virtual counseling, which will be free of charge, to the patient and their caregivers. Often times, patients have financial constraints when trying to keep up with all of their follow-up care. We want to decrease barriers in their survivorship by assisting them with free services such as counseling, scheduling, and helping them understand and stick with their treatment. Further we are happy to meet and attend with them at their various physician and healthcare provider visits and assist in scheduling transportation to and from their various appointments, if needed. We collaborate with the patient’s healthcare providers and commumity resources. Our patient population includes individuals living with facial or body disfigurement, which can include, but are not limited to, internal and external scars. Some of the conditions we have identified and continue to work with include individuals suffering from acne, acne scars, burns, cancer, acoustic neuroma, stroke, facial palsy, Bell’s Palsy, sexual assault, abuse, substance abuse, other neurological conditions, accidents, trauma, congenital anomalies, PTSD, depression, anxiety.
