Our Story

ConsumerMedical was founded in 1996 after David Hines, CEO and founder, had a close friend who received poor quality care because she was not given the latest, best practice treatment option for her cancer. Had David’s friend had a medical ally like ConsumerMedical to provide objective and independent clinical support, her decision would have been very different and the result a far better one.

For 20 years, we’ve been there for the healthcare decisions that matter most. Our team of leading physicians, researchers and highly trained Registered Nurses supports and empowers patients and caregivers as they navigate through the complexities of dealing with a medical condition. Our intimate, one-on-one support model provides each individual with a consistent point of contact—a medical ally—throughout their entire healthcare journey, backed by a physician-led team and the latest medical research. We’re available when they need us, for as long as they need us.
