“My work is rewarding. I enjoy working at CorCare with an amazing group of people, all motivated by the same goal to better our community’s health. Diabetes and obesity are growing problems and I want my patients to understand that even a small amount of weight loss can have a significant positive impact. Whenever they are ready to make a change, I can offer personalized guidance and strengthen their motivation for change.”
