I have had the pleasure and privilege of knowing Pamela for many years. Not only is she thoughtful and caring, her clinical knowledge and commitment to wellness is unsurpassed in her field. In recent years both my partner and I have had to deal with some serious diagnoses, including kidney disease, septicemia, and prostate cancer. Pamela was instrumental in helping us learn more about our conditions so that we could make better choices and become more proactive in our health care. Her knowledge, research skills, and ability to clearly communicate often complex information in a concise and comprehensible way helped us to take control of our situations and choose optimal treatment plans. She is a powerful healthcare ally and advocate whom I can highly recommend.
