Feb 20, 2019
Very smart and polite person miss you so much. whatever want to say about Dr. Endicott it's not enough. When I 1st start see Dr. Endicott I was really sick and i went to 4 different Doctors and 2 hospitales and none of them figure out what's wrong with me until i start see Dr. Endicott and from the 2nd visit she finds out what's was wrong and I'm very healthy now. And because of her i lost 100 lb of my extra weight. because she's always talk about how to be healthy and never give up .

About Me

Care Philosophy
  • The fabric of life is the relationships we build with others.  When a person is sick or has a medical problem, it affects not only that person, but also those close to them.  My training as a family physician has taught me how to see the bigger picture and treat patients within the context of their lives.  I thrive on being able to provide that continuity of care of taking care of entire families through the complete cycle of life.
