Philosophy of Care
I believe in forming a partnership with a patient to achieve our health goals! I try to help each patient find how they can make changes in their life to life healthier and often longer lives. I also like to give patients options in both diagnostics and treatment; I review the pros and cons to each option and come to a decision that works best for my patient. I have a lot of energy and work really hard in the office and from home to manage my patients' health needs. You will often see emails from me at all hours as I try to balance my life of being a mother and physician.
