About Me

Patients are the experts on themselves, and I am here to assist them find the best path for their healthcare needs. Positive partnerships between providers and patients can have a great impact by empowering individuals and their families and the communities where they live.

I value a holistic approach to resolve health issues, and practice current evidence based medicine, in addition to incorporating proper nutrition, exercise, stress management and restorative sleep.

I really like Erica's easy going approach. I've had a different provider each of the past few years at The Oregon Clinic and I hope she stays to be my provider from here on out! She was easy to converse with, she explained info in an approachable manner, and she spent enough time to address all that I wanted.
