Courtney A. Canavera, MD

Primary Care Physician
Languages: English
Professional Statement
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.
