Practice & Philosophy

Established in February 2010, this Nurse Practitioner neurology practice was established in response to a community request for thoughtful, patient-centered, neurology care. Our practice is based on the belief that our patients’ health care needs and safety are the cornerstone of care. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our practice is based on a loyal patient base and referrals. We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best neurology care in Alaska.
