Philosophy of care
I am on the same team as my patients; meeting them where they are to accomplish a desired goal together. I thrive on patient interaction and building relationships.
Why Abby went into medicine
From a young age I enjoyed teaching and would host pretend ‘class’ for my brother and cousins. As I grew, I really enjoyed science and found medicine to be the perfect intersection of teaching, science and serving others.
Favorite advice to give patients
Comparison is the thief of joy. A healthy lifestyle looks different for everyone.
I love running, hiking, traveling and baking (although I’m probably better at sampling the treats than baking them). Recently, I became a proud dog aunt to Reggie, the cutest Chihuahua.
