Dr. Pollard provides primary care for adolescents and adults with an integrative perspective. She strives to provide options for her patients that address the root causes of their issues and to offer holistic, as well as allopathic, medical approaches to managing them. She brought her practice to AOMA in 2013 so she could better apply this integrated model of care for her patients.
Dr. Pollard applies an evidence-based, personalized approach to medical care that is also preventative and participatory. She emphasizes nutrition and lifestyle while finding the health and wellness plan that is right for each individual. “Over time in my practice I have found that listening carefully to patients and reflecting on each case with healing intent makes the quality of care better, patients are more satisfied with an encounter and their care and so am I!”
In addition to conducting annual well examinations for everyone over the age of sixteen, Dr. Pollard assists with wellness-oriented preventative care and guidance, nutritional assessment, acute problems, sick visits, chronic medical problems and integral care coordination. She is especially interested in working with patients during transitional times in their lives.
