From the Doctor:
As an internist and a pediatrician, I enjoy providing preventive care to entire families and enjoy watching children as they grow into healthy happy adults.
I encourage my patients to try lifestyle changes before resorting to prescription medications. In this way, I hope to partner with them in their care and empower them to lead healthier lifestyles.
I'm in the office every day, but I take off half a day each week in order to spend more time with my family. My husband is a podiatrist, and we have one son. We enjoy the outdoor activities Jacksonville has to offer, including hiking, biking and gardening. We also like taking trips to the zoo, the beach and local festivals.
