My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a practicing physician with extensive training and experience in the care of acutely ill/critical patients as well as treating patients with chronic medical conditions, I am here to provide exemplary, individualized care to those seeking universal medical treatment and guidance. I prioritize a healthy, active lifestyle for myself and am passionate about encouraging my patients to do the same.

In my holistic approach to wellness, I partner with my patients in creating comprehensive healthcare plans to meet their unique needs and goals. My training at a Harvard-affiliated academic institution in Boston provided a solid background for caring for my patients using a traditional background in evidence-based medicine. In addition, my ongoing training in integrative medicine allows me to provide fresh insights and treatment options, including alternative dietary recommendations, herbal and nutritional supplements, and referrals to complementary care practitioners in acupuncture, massage, and more. As a female physician, I am also well versed in the most up to date advances in women’s healthcare.
My 10-year background in emergency medicine gives me the unique ability to effectively manage many urgent/emergent conditions which most primary care physicians are unable to treat in the office. My MDVIP-affiliated practice is here to provide you with private, personalized care when you need it most. 

I speak English and basic Spanish, and serve the greater Ft. Lauderdale area, including as far south as Miami.

I look forward to partnering with and supporting you in your journey to optimal wellness.
