Philosophy Of Care

I am a caring and compassionate provider specializing in the needs of all family members across the lifespan. I believe overall health begins in the home but when illness occurs, I believe in exploring different avenues of treatments to help one return to health and well-being.

i feel that the doctor could have requested more recent blood work before prescribing all medication since it's been 9 months since I had my blood work done.
