Living With Chronic Illness: Strategies for Coping and Thriving

A New Slant on Private Healthcare

RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, is directed by Dr. Antoine Geffrard, who gives you a new perspective on chronic illness. It is no secret about the tight grip that big Pharma, the government, and our insurance companies have on the doctors in America, which is about to become tighter.

Doctors are no longer in charge of your health. The ones now in charge likely have no medical background and are calling the shots on whether you can have a medication or treatment. At RMS, we do things differently, and we are sure you will like what we offer.

Coping and Thriving with a Chronic Disease

RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, recognized that primary doctors are too busy to discuss chronic illness with their patients and can allow only 10 minutes for each patient. We allow up to 45 minutes per visit. We fill this gap and do reviews of your medications and treatments. We explain the side effects and send our recommendations to your doctor. 

We help you understand your care plan and address your health concerns. We help you cope and thrive while living with illnesses such as diabetes, heart failure, and kidney disease.

We help you thrive and cope with your illness through the following approaches.

  • Keeping up with Medical Advances
    It is difficult to handle a chronic condition. One example is keeping up with the latest changes and discoveries that could make a difference in you. These changes lower your risk for organ damage. Never manage your illness alone. It is too overwhelming; you can count on us to help you. 
  • Clarification of Disease
    You must be an informed patient and understand all aspects of your illness. Your visits with us are to clarify your disease, medications, treatment options, and side effects, and we answer your questions until you understand fully and feel satisfied.
