She decided to build a team that supported her mission and that would allow her to extend more care to more people and to spend time sharing sparkMD’s mission with other doctors and medical organizations throughout the US.
Dr Julie has worked to build a robust, compassionate, diligent and capable team of two nurses, a Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant and an aesthetician. The sparkMD team provides urgent care services, wellness services and aesthetic services, focusing across the board on mental and physical well being. Dr. Julie supervises all of these services and is generally on-site and/or behind the scenes for every patient interaction provided here. It is the mission of everyone at sparkMD to restore the integrity of healthcare through dignified, transparent care that is given the time and space it needs to be done right.
