MY STORY

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
