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 is amazing! She has a sweet compassionate spirit that makes her stand above any provider I have ever experienced.

    Ms. Rita is an exceptional ray of sunshine. It was refreshing to have her explain blood work instead of out initials and sending you on your way. You need more Ms. Ritas that treat folks like they are human, and less of the doctors that rush you out like you?re a number.
