A note from the Doctor
I was called to healthcare because I am passionate about helping people take better care of themselves. Through my residency and practice in underserved communities, I saw the need for a practice that accommodates those who cannot afford insurance or have high deductibles. Most importantly, I wanted to bring compassion and personalized support back into medical care.
“When families are healthy, wonderful things happen.”
I love building relationships with each family member, ensuring all voices are heard and individual needs are met. Since becoming a mother, I have developed a renewed interest in breastfeeding medicine and postpartum care. I believe high-quality fourth-trimester care can make a huge difference in helping children and families succeed.
I look forward to hearing your story!
Wishing you the best in health,
Dr. Rebecca Berens
