Philosophy Of Care

My philosophy includes engaging and empowering women by using an approach that integrates both traditional and holistic treatments. To me, wellness involves not only medical health but also emotional and spiritual balance. I enjoy building collaborative relationships with my patients and providing preventive healthcare for women from adolescence through menopause.

I was anxious about a health concern and felt judged for my anxiety and criticized for putting the problem in the description when scheduling online. She seemed annoyed to be addressing my concern and was not compassionate at all. I left feeling like my concern was normalized but also shamed for my anxiety and concern in the first place. I felt stigmatized for my anxiety and mental health and that my health concern was minimized. I will not be returning to this provider and will be seeing my OBGYN care elsewhere.
