From the Doctor:
I am originally from a small town in West Virginia. I came to Jacksonville for my residency and immediately knew it was a community that I would be fortunate to call home. In the years since, this feeling has only strengthened. Since moving to Jacksonville, I’ve adopted a plant-based diet, a transition I’ve explored within the city’s many dining options. I also work to incorporate exercise into my schedule alongside my long-term boyfriend, while still finding time for hobbies, including playing table-top games, watching movies, and spending time with my cats.
My first priority when it comes to patient care is to listen to the patient. Communication is paramount to not only building a worthwhile course of treatment but also to cultivating a lasting relationship with a patient. I also like working to not only treat the symptoms that may lead to a visit but also the underlying cause of the symptoms, a proactive rather than reactive way of treatment.
