Picture it. You’re standing at the nurse’s counter. You’re holding a squirming 8 month old baby. The four year old is pulling on your skirt and your two year old is a whirling dervish running around the clinic, earning glaring looks from the other calm members of the waiting room.
The secretary is lecturing you, in an annoyed tone and fast Hebrew, about how you dont have the appointment. That your child, who you’ve literally dragged into this clinic, cannot do the test that the doctor prescribed, because, you guessed it, you don’t have the right paper.
You are sweating, almost in tears, and questioning why you moved to this foreign country where you don’t really speak the language.
That was me. Twenty years ago. Confused. Frustrated. Just wanting guidance on where to go for treatment of all my kids’ various ailments, what to ask, and most importantly, what papers I needed.
Fast forward to today. After completing a Masters in Public Health, starting my own niche medical research coordination company, raising five children (with my wonderful spouse), becoming a board certified patient advocate, and two decades of experience in the medical world, I’ve established my own company to help others navigate the healthcare system in Israel.
With a fantastic medical advisory board, my trained healthcare advocates can help you:
Understand your healthcare rights and how to access them:
- Apply (or appeal) to bituach leumi (national insurance) benefits in disability, child disability, nursing care
- Apply for a foreign caregiver license for your loved one
- Arrange the medical side of aliyah for an older parent or a child/adult making aliyah with physical/cognitive disability
- Assist adults with mental health issues to receive the services they deserve upon making aliyah.
- And more!

Dead to Me, Netflix and Patient Advocacy?!
Binging a series on Netflix is obviously a stress release, and often my job revolves around helping people who are ill, or overwhelmed, or suffering, and often all of those emotions. So, releasing stress is an important part of my day. But I can’t turn off my patient advocate head, even during those moments.
Should you register an official complaint against a hospital or doctor? Is that possible?
The short answer is yes and yes.
Getting the Healthcare You Deserve
‘Continuity of care’ has become an international buzzword, (in Israel as well). In fact, it is considered a basic health right that you may demand when seeking out the same medication, doctor, treatment plan.
