“As a physician assistant, I enjoy the luxury of having generous time to spend with my patients allowing me to develop personal relationships in addition to educating them on the numerous transitions throughout life spanning from adolescence, pregnancy to menopause. Each visit I strive to make the patient feel comfortable with me as a practitioner and knowledgeable on the health concern that brought them to the office that day.”
