Health care should be based on the individual needs of each patient. It is important to maintain an environment in which each patient feels comfortable and receives focused attention. I endeavor to keep up to date with the latest in medical and nursing literature in order to provide patients with evidence-based, collaborative care.

A Flu vaccine can help prevent flu-related visits to the doctor each year. CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get vaccinated every flu season.
