About

Bio

I was born in New York City, moved to Arizona in high school, went to college in California and went back to Arizona for medical school. I married a guy from North Carolina and we moved here to be near family while I finished my residency. We got settled here, started our family and 2 daughters, 20-some years, many dogs and cats (and some unfortunate moments with ferrets and guinea pigs) later we are established and thriving. I've been in private practice since 1988. It's a small practice that focuses on health maintenance as well as treating illness, with the idea that the more we do the former, the less we'll have of the latter. I love what I do and enjoy meeting so many interesting people. I learn something from them every day and try to return the favor.

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.
