Board Certified, Family Medicine, 2 years of experience
What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? My passion for healthcare comes from knowing that I am able to provide compassionate care to a diverse community and people from all walks of life. This in turns allows me to build a rapport with my patients to give them the confidence to take control of those health and mental well being. In your opinion, what should be the role of a primary care provider for a patient, taking into account both physical health and behavioral health needs? As a primary care provider my role is to provide quality care to prevent disease process not only physically but as well as behavioral health. My goal is to prevent diseases through lifestyle management in order to manage chronic and acute conditions. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I graduated with my nursing degree from Loyola University of Chicago. Post graduation - I worked at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and soon after as a supplemental nurse at the University of Chicago Medical Center. After working for five years as nurse - I went back to school for my masters in Family Medicine. As a Nurse practitioner I worked in the city f Chicago serving the population with acute and chronic health conditions.

I was put together with a great provider. She is knowledgeable and patient and honestly she has better bedside manner than many of the therapists I have seen. The chat feature has been very useful.

I have an amazing provider. She understands my ADHD and depression better than any other provider/doctor/therapist I've ever had a session with in person. She's helped me out of one of my most difficult times with her assessments and kept me on track thanks to the ease of communication and accessibility of Circle. I honestly wouldn't be here today without Circle or my provider.

It's easy to get an appointment. It's nice to be able to not have to sit in an office waiting to be seen.

She also discusses treatment with me instead of just throwing pills at me and saying do this or do that. I feel involved and in charge of my own health.
