NIAAH PATIENT ADVOCACY SERVICES
NIAAH medical experts are available to review clinical records if there are questions regarding the quality of the medical care provided. If needed, these specialists may serve as expert witnesses in support of the patient’s case.

With the goal of preserving the number of African American physicians, NIAAH may also serve as an advocate in their defense.
