Allied Healthcare

We are so lucky to live in such a diverse and large city where there are numerous and varied healthcare providers. Having a team of different care providers to help with varying ailments is very helpful as we are all unique and the same treatment that works for one may not work for another based on our individual health picture and preferences for care.

 

The allied healthcare providers listed below are ones that I have come to know well in my years practicing and/or whom my patients or other trusted colleagues have provided specific positive feedback about. I am always open to meeting with care providers who I have not yet had the pleasure to meet to better understand their areas of expertise so we can all better serve our patients. 

If you are an allied care provider and would like to be added to this list, or should you know of one that should be listed here, please apply here. Please note that this page is always changing so keep checking back for new listings:) Click on the underlined names to be linked to the respective webpage.
