Spotlight on my new favorite health-related website - Your GPS doc.Dr. Nicole T. Rochester is a board-certified pediatrician and Assistant Professor with almost two decades of experience practicing clinical medicine and teaching medical students and physicians-in-training.
As a caregiver to her late father, who suffered from dementia, diabetes, hypertension, end-stage kidney disease, depression, and heart disease, Dr. Rochester witnessed the disjointed health care system from the other side of the stethoscope and gained invaluable insight into the plight of patients and family caregivers. As the only physician in her family, Dr. Rochester has served as the interpreter and patient advocate for numerous family members during critical and sometimes frustrating encounters with healthcare professionals. She realizes that most patients and families do not have access to this “inside knowledge” and has made it her personal mission to help others navigate the health care system through her creation of Your GPS Doc, LLC.
