This lady is by no means your typical Doc, she is everything you could hope for and more! She is knowledable, compassionate and down to earth. She administers care not only from the medical aspect of her profession but also from her heart. She is not afraid to take on the challanges of her patients or to fight for them! Make the trip to Mayo and you will thank God you did!
