Ask Dr. Vicki


I’m not your doctor (and, if you’re a smart patient or caregiver, neither are you). I care about you too much to be your doctor or even offer medical advice. You want the opinion of a doctor who knows your whole story and performs a complete evaluation. I hope to direct you to the right questions. Then you and your doctor can arrive at the answers that work best for you. Smart patients and empowered patient advocates turn to their doctors—and not to their neighbors or friends or favorite Web sites—for their diagnoses and treatment plans.
