About

Bio

As a young girl, my passion was always finding solutions to problems, especially to life's biggest challenges and mysteries in health and well being. My extensive research and work with and in Minority Health and Health Disparities helped me find avenues in improving this area of a big public health problem; however i still had more unanswered questions on why my patients were not getting better. So I decided to start treating them as a person rather than a mere patient, number or statistic. Well wouldn't you know HbA1c's started improving, blood pressures became more stable, you get the jist. As physicians we have lost are value to our patients and we have definitely devalued them as people. Thirty minutes for a new patient visit is a joke but yet thats how we are trained. Luckily the rebel within and my stubborness became my strength as i fought to spend my time with patients. The time that THEY NEEDED AND REQUIRED OF ME, not the time my residency program believed I should spend with them. Regardless of what specialty, what clinic structure, what business plan one implements, there will always be a positive effect on patients when doctors believe in their patients and truly exhibit sincerity and concern for their well being. Lets get back to being that "Noble" profession we were called to be. In a nutshell, I am passionate about teaching people how to live life to the fullest without dependence on medications. I believe in unleashing the healing power within our bodies. Holistic medicine is the true form of healing.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
