Dr. Aiken's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Aiken "As an endocinologist and an integrative medicine specialist I enjoy treating patients who are invested in their own care. I enjoy solving puzzles, and figuring out the sometimes complex pathways leading to a person's illness. What sets me apart from most physicians is my attention to detail, but also my ability to see the bigger picture; the whole person. I seek to treat the cause of a disorder if possible, rather than the outcome, but ideally I prefer to evaluate risk factors, and educate patients to prevent disease."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Aiken "As a specialist in integrative medicine, endocrinology and infertility, I believe in the importance of treating the patient as a whole, rather than only focusing on treating a disease. I want patients to be partners in their medical care and to strive to optimize their overall health and well-being throughout their lifetime."

Dr. Aiken takes excellent care of my husband and his complicated medical issues. She's smart, professional and puts the patient at ease with her pleasant personality. She makes observations some doctors would overlook.

I just moved from out of state and just before moving had been diagnosed with a thyroid condition. Dr. Aiken took her time with me, gave me a game plan, and has a great bed side manner. When my medication had undesirable side-effects she worked with me until we found a good match. She is relaxed, approachable, and very easy to talk with. Even when I wasn't following orders -- she didn't talk down to me. I'm very happy I found her.
