In my early 20s, my life took a significant turn when a family member fell ill, grappling with a heart defect. This pivotal moment compelled me to reevaluate my life's direction. Abandoning my previous path, I embarked on a journey into the world of medicine, enrolling in a rigorous PA school program.
My transformative journey truly began during my inaugural medical mission trip to Uganda. In that remote village, I was humbled by the trust bestowed upon me to heal every patient I encountered. It was there that I discovered my true calling - aiding women in confronting intimate, personal traumas, and health-related insecurities. As I continued to serve on various medical mission trips worldwide, I unearthed a remarkable common thread that unites us all, transcending cultural and economic disparities.
My own struggles with health issues left me yearning for a healthcare provider who genuinely supported me on my path to wellness. These early experiences, combined with years of witnessing inefficiencies in hospitals, clinics, and private practices, inspired the birth of my vision for better healthcare - Solcara Health.
From a young age, I have been drawn to assisting others, and I consider it a blessing to empower individuals to embark on their journey to improved health. Regardless of their current health status, I strive to inspire and comfort my patients throughout the process. Medicine serves as a unifying force that forges relationships extending beyond the traditional patient-clinician connection. Many of the patients I've had the privilege of helping have become friends, enriching my own path towards better health.
I firmly believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality healthcare, regardless of their background. My holistic, multidisciplinary treatment philosophy is the cornerstone of my practice, intertwining health, nutrition, physical well-being, and emotional health in my diagnosis and treatment plans. By truly understanding my patients and their unique lifestyles, not just their ailments, I can provide more precise, intimate, and effective care.
Solcara Health was born from my desire to heal in a distinct way and fulfill my mission and vision of delivering the finest personalized healthcare. "Medicine with a smile" may sound clichéd, but it truly reflects my approach. My positivity infuses our slogan - "Lively Up Your Health," which we strive to bring to our patients every day.
