Dr. Wilkes works with me as a partner to get to the bottom of all my health concerns. She takes all of my concerns seriously and provides feedback and support in my efforts. Dr. Wilkes cares about me and provides care to me that is encouraging and timely. She is excellent at planning my service needs. The current prescription she provides are: Eat healthy. Work on consistent exercise. Decrease TV and news. Try to do one thing each day that gives me joy. I am doing these things and it really helps during this pandemic.
