Times are always changing, but through all phases of life, your health is of utmost importance.
You deserve personal, compassionate care now more than ever, and I have built a career based on the knowledge that wellness is a balance of mind, body and spirit. The VIP in my MDVIP-affiliated practice embodies this, as for me it represents Value In Prevention as well as Vitally Important Patients. I will work with you as a partner in your wellness, helping address the distinct needs of women in a patient-centered atmosphere. With 30 years of experience as a physician and two board certifications, I am uniquely positioned to walk with you on your journey towards achieving a comprehensive, happy, long, health span.
I have specialized in women’s healthcare for over 30 years in the Augusta and Aiken areas and was an early advocate of telemedicine in the region. The author of two books, A Woman’s Guide to Hormone Health and Healthy Habits for a Fit Family, my approach to women’s health focuses on wellness, weight management, hormone issues, menopause, holistic/integrative care and fitness. As a board-certified Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine, extensive training has equipped me to deliver a spectrum of prevention services including weight loss, nutrition, immune enhancement, sexual health, mood and emotional issues and postmenopausal wellness. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time.
I practice what I preach and have completed over 100 marathons/half marathons and encourage my patients to adopt a healthy lifestyle by doing what they enjoy. I understand that personal care means listening to your needs, taking time to address those concerns and providing individualized solutions. In the midst of a changing healthcare environment, one thing always remains: you deserve personalized care where I can be your advocate - knowing you, your family and your needs and helping you find your individual path to wellness.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
