I am flour­ish­ing when I am on a bike ride with my hus­band and three small chil­dren. The end­less chat­ter of the kids, expe­ri­enc­ing new ele­ments of nature togeth­er, all the while push­ing our own lim­its of strength and endurance are the moments in which I am my best self. As a physi­cian, I see my role as your sup­port and guide to help you live out the expe­ri­ences and activ­i­ties that bring you the most joy!

Sep­tem­ber is prostate can­cer aware­ness month. Since prostate can­cer is the sec­ond most com­mon form of can­cer in men, start­ing at age 45 for those at an increased risk and age 50 for those at an aver­age risk, screen­ing options are avail­able to help catch can­cer at an ear­ly stage. Take charge of your health and sched­ule with your pri­ma­ry care provider to dis­cuss fam­i­ly his­to­ry and risk fac­tors to deter­mine if screen­ing is right for you.
