My interest in medicine began with medical TV shows and learning about diseases and procedures as a child. As I continued in my education and learned more about how the body is made up of many different components and systems, I felt driven to study further. I chose healthcare as a career so I could better understand these intricacies and help people when something goes wrong.
I believe it is important to treat the well patient in addition to the sick patient. Preventative medicine and educating patients about healthy choices is as important as treating a patient who is already ill. Because of that, I also believe that without effective communication between a practitioner and patient, there will never be trust. Without trust, patients are unlikely to believe or accept advice and treatment from their provider. Being a part of Revere Health means I can walk into every patient room with the desire to listen and learn something new. I most enjoy when a patient leaves a room with me and I feel I have made a difference.
Outside the clinic, I enjoy playing ice hockey, trail running, going to the gym and reading. My husband and I moved from Southern California to settle in Utah. We enjoy the wide variety of outdoor activities, including hiking and relaxing at Bear Lake. We volunteer with the Society of Physics Students at USU where we bring fun science experiments to school-aged children to interest them in science.
A provider's patient satisfaction rating is determined by patient responses to questions from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, administered by NRC Health.
Patients today have more choices than ever, including where, how and from whom they get care. That's why Revere Health believes it's important to provide access to transparent information, empowering our patients to make knowledgable decisions about their healthcare.
CAHPS surveys are funded and overseen by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients receive the nine-question survey via email or phone call, and we publish provider ratings on Revere Health's website once he or she has at least 30 completed surveys.
