Bio

55 year old female physician / single mom to fanatastic 14 year old swimmmer son. Living in a suburbs. Starting a family medcine practice 26 years ago. Prior to that i was a Navy physician. I was assigned to Naval Regional Medical Center in San Diego, CA. I served as a LT at the SEALTraining Center in Coronado, CA. Very Interesting. i was assigned to ARLEX in Washington, DC promoted to LCDR, at the clinic of the Commandant of the Marine Corps--Kelly. That covers 1980-1985. I then started my family practice in Douglassville, PA; close to my elderly parents. i became certified in family medicine and bariatric medicine. I also have basic certification in medical acupuncture and aesthetic medicine. I have served as medical advisor on two hospice organizations. Solo family medicine is difficult in today's medical system.
