Medical care is complicated enough, but what happens when prescriptions change, diagnoses are different, and bills come that seem incomprehensible? That’s when having a patient navigator might make all the difference. From updated medication cards to explaining bills, these folks know their way around the medical system.  Tami Rockholt and Dr. Justin Groode are on the show to share their experiences when patients are put first in healthcare. 

In 1999, Dr. Kozak came to Straub Clinic and Hospital where she currently works as an internist specializing in preventative health, travel medicine, women's health and wellness. She is a graduate of the Medical College of Pennsylvania and did her residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
