Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Some of the specific conditions I treat include ear and sinus infections, throat infections, respiratory illnesses, urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted infections, musculoskeletal problems (back pain, shoulder pain, foot/ankle pain, etc.), rashes, skin infections, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, asthma, and seasonal allergies.

What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?

Some of the techniques and procedures that I use in my practice include EKGs, vaccinations, urine drug screens, TB screening (PPD skin test, x-ray), x-ray for musculoskeletal problems or respiratory illnesses, urinalysis & urine culture, STD testing, rapid covid/flu/rsv testing, rapid strep testing, phlebotomy, blood sugar testing, routine annual physicals, pre-employment physicals, pelvic exams for vaginitis, minor office procedures (laceration repair, skin tag removal, ear wax removal, I&D of simple abscesses), eye exam to rule out corneal abrasion, aircast/ace bandage application, and wound care.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I am incredibly passionate about the work that I do and I truly care about my patients. I practice a patient-centered care model, in which the patient is involved in the decision-making of their care each and every step of the way. I empower my patients to advocate for their health, as well as provide education in a way that the patient can understand so they can best care for themselves.

Erika was thorough, thorough, thorough. Despite Erika knowing I have a medical background, she cut no corners in the instruction/education and the why/why-not of it all. Erika could have understood I was aware of some information given my background, but she was committed and dedicated to making sure I got the best care and information regardless of whether I was a layman or not. Great job indeed Erika. Explanations-Given is a perennial 'gotcha moment' on our VHS surveys and Erika did not take any shortcuts in her AIDET sequences. Insert applause emoji here! : )
