I believe that excellent communication is key to establishing trust with patients, ensuring that they fully understand their diagnosis and treatment options, and are comfortable with their care.
I am a married mom with two beautiful daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and dogs, figure-skating, skiing, learning electric guitar, gardening and photography.
