About

Bio

I am a family physician & a clinical professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. I am also a board certified lactation consultant. I believe than many health problems can be managed through life style changes, such as exercise and a healthy diet as well as a healthy attitude and a strong social support network. Good communication between individuals and their doctors is key to excellent health care.

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.
