Care Philosophy

Helping people is her passion, she looks at your entire life health history as interconnected like a web, everything is clue to your present state of health and illness. With each patient that she sees. she seeks to find common link, root cause of illness, and not simply treat the symptoms. She believes in engaging both patient and herself in a therapeutic partnership. By shifting the traditional disease centered focus of medical practice to a more patient centered approach, and addressing whole person and not just an isolated set of symptoms. She spends time with her patients, listening to their story and looking at genetics, environment and, lifestyle factors and their influence in the long-term health and complex chronic disease. She believes in looking at the person who happened to have illness rather than what illness that person has.Read more

in Tempe, AZ |
I would not recommend this provider. She doesn't believe Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disease/disorder and wasn't at all prepared for the appmt, even though documents had been sent ahead weeks earlier. Very disappointed.
in phoenix, AZ |
Just 9 visits and I am 70 % better. I was skeptical.
in phonix, AZ |
I have seen her few times .I have had 4 major symptoms .My Doctor and specialist did not make a dent in my condition. I visited her with skepticism looking at this site 21/2 star evaluation. My girl friend goes to her and raves about her care, and I saw how she is feeling better, so I decided to give her a try. Am I glad I did it .I am with her for 8 weeks and I am able to go to work ,for few hours a day, but it is better than not being able to get out of bed I am alive again.
in Scottsdale |
She practices integrative and functional medicine.I went with lot of food sensitivities and now six months down the line I am back to work and tolerate lot of food.I am once again alive.I have no hesitation to recommend her to anyone.
