General Information


Biography
I believe in partnering with my patients to achieve maximal health through a holistic approach. I feel patients should be active participants in their care, and I strive to use evidenced-based medicine to help them make the best decisions they can about their health. I also believe in appropriate use of medications in the management of disease, while not neglecting the importance of lifestyle, exercise and diet on ones overall health and well-being. I am particularly passionate about caring for kids, from birth through early adulthood, and helping parents navigate through the challenges and joys of raising healthy children.

I've never had a doctor give me a couple options on different medications and ask which one I'm more comfortable taking. I really appreciated that I had the option to choose, and that when I inquired about an additional medication to deal with an alternate symptom she was open to helping treat that as well. It's always nice to work with a doctor that trusts you with your own care!
