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? The role of a primary care provider should be that of a partner and advocate. My focus is on obtaining my patient’s goals for themselves, providing expert guidance, utilizing both evidence-based practice, and intuitive medicine to obtain optimal physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? My name is Sylvia, and in my spare time I love to be outdoors! I like all things beach and exercise related, including paddle-boarding and hiking. I enjoy lifting weights and eating much more than cooking. I also have a farm in Virginia with cattle and horses and have fun feeding the horses apples. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I feel very strongly that everyone should have access to healthcare. I have been around the world in the remotest of places (that are not even found on a map) to provide medical assistance wherever there is a need.
