ORNOA - Who We Are


Guiding your most important medical decisions

ORNOA began operations in March of 2010. Originally our services aimed to assist patients seeking oncology, neurology and orthopedic care in South Florida. Today our Patient Navigation services connect patients seeking a wide range of medical services from various specialists and medical centers. ORNOA does not offer medical advice. We are health advocates who coordinate care for patients. We work closely with physicians, imaging and medical centers , insurance carriers and employers to create an optimum experience for patients. We are independent Patient Navigators and are not employed by hospitals, physician practices or health insurance companies. Our efforts are supported by 1) members who pay a membership fee to belong to the network and receive Patient Navigations services for their clients. Or 2) by patients themselves who seek a Patient Navigator and pay hourly or annual membership.

ORNOA was developed by healthcare executives with experience in navigating the South Florida medical environment.

“After being told I had breast cancer by my doctor, I was very scared. But I had a chance to speak to the breast doctors before coming to Miami and this helped me not to worry so much.

these were the first words uttered by the son when he called us.
