A primary care provider should be able to hear and seek to understand how their patient's symptoms are affecting them. Together, they can create a plan for the patient that is achievable to live a healthier, more fulfilled life. I love to experience new places and new foods, both here and abroad. I also enjoy the outdoors - hiking, kayaking, boating, or just soaking up the sun. You can often find my dog, Lacey, running around on adventures with me.
