Caring for the sick and healthy individuals has always been my passion. I chose family medicine because it allows me to care for my patients holistically and across their lifespan. Furthermore, the continuity of care allows me to partner with my patients to bring evidence-based practice into their care through prevention, education, and screening before the onset of any disease. I approach each patient as a unique individual and not a number. My goal is to assist the patient in making good lifestyle choices that can help reverse and lower their risks for chronic diseases, thereby helping them live a healthier life overall.

    Rita was amazing! I have a lot of anxiety going to the doctor and she made me feel so welcome. She was full of positive energy and made me feel comfortable. She explained everything we did before hand and answered all my questioned. 10/10 recommend her. Front desk was an easy check in and lab work was quick and easy. Thank you so much!
