Julie’s Philosophy

“I believe in providing my patients with the most up to date information available that they need to make informed decisions about their healthcare and lifestyle choices. Achieving optimal health takes a conscious effort, but it’s the best return on investment any of us will ever make.”

What Makes Julie Different

Julie has a passion for motivating people to pursue their best health now. She performs comprehensive physical exams with the primary goal of health promotion, disease prevention, and early detection of problems. Julie custom tailors her patients’ wellness plan by ensuring all appropriate screenings are performed based on age, health conditions, and/or symptoms that might be expressing themselves. Julie helps educate her patients on the benefits that often times simple lifestyle modifications can make on their overall wellbeing.

Prevention and Education – Key in Staying Healthy

Preventative care allows the provider to discover potential health problems before symptoms reveal themselves. It’s important to collaborate with your healthcare provider and discuss your wellness goals to determine what path will help lead you toward your optimal health.

Annual exams and screenings are an opportunity to focus on disease prevention and health promotion. Preventative care can include immunizations, lab tests, and screenings that detect indicators on a range of conditions such as:

  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Cardiac disease
