Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Elder "I believe that healthcare is not about what your doctor can do for you, but what you and your doctor can do together as a team. My job is to ensure that patients have the information they need to make informed decisions about their health. I enjoy caring for the entire family at different stages in life. The most rewarding part of my day is working with and encouraging patients as they make healthy lifestyle choices."

Dr. Elder is my new doctor since my old doctor retired. She reviewed all my records and made new recommendations regarding my condition and medications. She was never rushed and gave me her full attention answering all my questions. I left feeling grateful that she will be taking care of me now.
