Her thoughts:

“I practice Medicine the same way I learned it. I was the only doctor in my community and I cared for my neighbors, knew them and their families personally, and provided health care for them in a personal, caring, and friendly environment. I have always treated my patients as if they were my own family. My goal with each and every patient is to get to know them, to talk with them, to listen to them, to answer their questions, to educate them, to address their needs in the clinic. Together we can focus on prevention of disease and staying healthy.”
