My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as an MDVIP-affiliated family medicine physician is providing excellent and personalized healthcare to each of my patients. I encourage healthy, happy and energized living, which not only involves appropriate treatment but also an emphasis on prevention, wellness and fitness. In my primary care practice, I individualize patient care and ensure a customizable approach to your needs with respect to your desires and dignity. I strive to develop and maintain a healthy doctor-patient partnership based on mutual respect and trust.

The structure of my MDVIP-affiliated practice, which is similar to a concierge practice, provides additional time for me to develop a close working relationship with each of my patients, to really listen, to carefully review records, to perform comprehensive exams, and to research relevant topics specific to you in order for us to jointly formulate the best approach to your care. I also have more time to keep abreast of advances in health and medicine and assist in guiding you to achieving and maintaining the best possible health.

I am one of the few female physicians in the Tri-Cities area to provide patients with this type of highly personalized medicine. I have interests in women’s health, wellness and prevention, physical medicine and cardiovascular health. I have been practicing in the Tri-Cities area for over 12 years and have relationships with several specialists to further ensure timely specialty consultations when appropriate.
